What is the Trustees role?

All Trustees give their time freely with no trustee remuneration being paid. Trustees are required to disclose all relevant interests and register them with the General Secretary, and in accordance with the Trustees policy withdraw from decisions where a conflict of interest may arise.

The Trustees have appointed an independent Chairman of Trustees in Lord Rooker, and two independent Trustees in Jim Morris and Dominic Ostrowski. The Trust is committed to advancing equality and diversity and it is the Trustees wish to have a majority of independent Trustees in the long run.

Trustee meetings are normally held bi-annually, where the Trustees agree the broad strategy and areas of activity for the Trust, including grant making, investment, risk management policies, performance and reserves. The day to day administration of grants is delegated to the Trust’s General Secretary.

The Charity Trustees are responsible for preparing the Trustees Annual Report and the financial statements for each financial year.

Interested in becoming a Trustee?

The British Motor Sports Training Trust (BMSTT) is always looking to increase its number of suitable and appropriately skilled independent Trustees to join the existing team headed by Lord Rooker as independent Chairman.

The Trust supports safety and training initiatives in motor sport through grant aid funding and in a typical year provides total grants in the region of £400,000, and all the Trustees play a vital role volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the Trust’s work. The Trust meets at least twice a year at the MSA Headquarters and the Trustees carry substantial responsibilities for running the charity and looking after its affairs

For further information about the Trust and how you may be able to become involved as an independent Trustee, please contact the BMSTT General Secretary, Allan Dean-Lewis MBE at gensec@bmstt.org enclosing an outline c.v. An appropriate knowledge of motor sport is useful and previous experience of acting as a charity trustee would be particularly helpful. A mix of individual areas of expertise, whether in such areas as finance, investment, charity law and regulation, marketing and promotion, or training and safety aspects is also essential for the Board of Trustees to collectively reflect a wide spectrum of appropriate skills and experience.
