Welcome to the Home of National Autograss
Autograss is a non-contact motorsport that takes place on an oval track of, although sizes varying by venue, approximately 400m using a natural soil surface. Due to the close nature of the racing, thrills and spills are never far away, which only adds to the atmosphere, felt at all 52 Autograss venues across five countries!
There are 11 NASA classes, differing by type of set up and engine sizes, from near standard 1000cc minis through to specially designed spaceframed single seaters with moster V8 or twin motorbike power.

Very Important Information For All Clubs- A Director was recently asked if Juniors were insured to drive breakdown trucks/recovery vehicles etc. This question was relayed to the Insurance Broker and this is the response:- Juniors will be insured to drive in the sporting classes but would not be covered to be driving any other motor vehicle or plant machinery. Drivers of such vehicles would need to hold appropriate DVLA licences. Please make sure with immediate effect this information is passed to everyone within your club and please adhere to this!

Cancelled Race Meetings- IF you have cancelled a race meeting please note the following: all Clubs should be in receipt of the 'postcards' that need sending to Margaret Allen to notify her of the meeting being cancelled and if you are replacing this race date. This information can be emailed to Margaret, if doing so the information required is: Name of Club / League, Race Date Cancelled, Replacement Race Date if applicable. This must be done within seven days of cancelling the race meeting. If this is not received you will not receive a refund of you Insurance for that date. Pleaes make sure Margaret is aware if you intend to replace the cancelled date with another Race Date so Insurance can be arranged. Pat Patrick will need to know about the re-arranged race date to arrange Event Permits.
Photographers- The process for photographers signing on at NASA meetings has had to change with immediate effect. This follows a clarification received from NASAs insurers in response to a query from a club official.
It is NOT permitted to sign on as a photographer using a NASA licence. This is because NASAs public liability insurance only covers you when doing what your NASA licence entitles you to do. A full competition licence entitles the holder to compete, mechanic and officiate. A mechanics licence entitles the holder to mechanic and officiate only. A members licence entitles the holder to officiate.
Photographers are working in a capacity that isn't covered by any NASA licence. Therefore they are not covered by NASA's public liability insurance, and need their own insurance if they want to enter restricted areas, at their own risk.
Photographers must sign on using Form IN3 and must present evidence of current public liability insurance. NASA as yet has no ruling on the minimum level of cover required and will take professional advice before clarifying this. As a guideline, other motor sport venues require photographers to hold £5 million public liability cover. Insurance policies specifically designed to satisfy this requirement are available at a typical cost of £15 per month.
