NEW INFORMATION ABOUT LICENCES -
In The Southern League we offer an adult non-working/racing licence, which is priced higher than a standard adult licence. A non-working licence holder is not expected to help out on track work days/race days. Before purchasing one of these licences you must first apply via email to email@example.com, detailing the reason why you want one. There are a limited number available, so your application is not guaranteed to be accepted.
Also, we offer an Intermediate Junior licence. Any Juniors holding this licence aren't expected to attend track work days but are required to help out on race days.
PARENT GUARDIAN DECLARATION.
Only the child's parent may sign this form, or such person who has been appointed by the court as guardian or foster parent of the child.
Please read the terms of this consent carefully, if you do not understand anything then ask your local Club Secretary for clarification. It is designed to create a legal relationship between you and ourselves and, by signing the document where required, you confirm that you have read this document and agree to abide by its terms and conditions and requirements.
Autograss Racing is a sport that minors may participate in with their parents' consent. It is not organised primarily for minors but their involvement is encouraged providing they and their parents understand the hazards that are associated with the sport. Motor racing is dangerous and may involve the risk of injury or death.
1. You should read and understand the current issue of the Members Handbook before signing this form. This is available in hard copy from your club secretary.
2. You, the signatory to this document, are ultimately responsible for your child at all times whether you are present at the NASA meeting with them or not and by signing this form you confirm that your child is physically fit and competent to take part in the type of events for which you are allowing him or her to participate.
3. If you do not attend any NASA meeting with your child you must arrange for a NASA Licence holding adult (over 18) who holds a Full or Mechanic's Licence to take charge of your child throughout your child's period of attendance at that meeting – including night time where applicable. You will agree that responsibility with that adult beforehand and your child is to clearly understand who their guardian is throughout the period.
4. If and when asked by a NASA official, your child will tell the official who their guardian is on the day. Failure to have a guardian present will result in your child taking no further part in the event and you being contacted and asked to remove the child.
5. You, as next of kin and person responsible will provide your name and address at the time of licence application. You are also to print this address in your child's licence in the space provided when it is issued. You will also provide two emergency telephone numbers which you will also print in their NASA licence. If this information is not in the applicant's licence then they will not be permitted to sign on to race.
6. Upon receipt your child will sign their NASA Licence and you, the same person who has signed this form will countersign.
7. You undertake to ensure that your child will carry their NASA Licence with them at all times whilst present at a NASA meeting – including evenings.
8. Your child will show any NASA official their licence upon request and without question.
9. You are to ensure that your child, if under 16 years does not drink alcohol at any time during their presence at a race meeting – day or night.
10. Your child may be breathalysed at any time of the day or evening. The procedures for testing and the penalties for failure are clearly set out in the Members' Handbook and will be applied to your child in the same way as they are to an adult.
11. You will ensure that your child's race car (where applicable) has been constructed in accordance with NASA regulations, is maintained in safe order and is built with regard to your child's size and stature and is suitable and safe to take part in the event for which that child is entered.
12. You are responsible for ensuring their seat harness; helmet and safety clothing are appropriate and maintained in good order.
13. If your child is under 16 years of age you are to ensure that they understand that they must not handle fuel or re-fuel the car. If you are not present this must be done by the child's guardian who must be present in the pit area.
14. Your child will subject their car to scrutineering with them driving the car in exactly the same manner a
