MSVR is run by a core team based at the MotorSport Vision Centre at Brands Hatch circuit. We certainly couldn't do it alone however, and are ably supported by a committed band of volunteer officials who help us at the event weekends throughout the year.
The core team comprises:
Race Operations Manager
David Scott has been an integral part of MSVR since the club's inception in early 2006. As Race Operations Manager, David leads the MSVR team and is responsible for many aspects of the club's activities. These responsibilities range from championships/series regulations to organising the dedicated team of Senior Officials who help at the race meetings. David can generally be found in Race Control at our events in his role as Senior Clerk of the Course.
With a wealth of motorsport knowledge (from club racing to FIA-level), David is also an International-grade Clerk of the Course and a MSA Steward.
MSV Motorsport Events Manager
Another long-term resident, David Willey joined MSVR at the end of 2006. Much of David's role involves creating MSVR's excellent (and busy!) race calendar each year, and liaising with the club's various championships/series to ensure their drivers have access to the circuits and formats they would like.
David has been a National B race licence holder, his claim to fame being a podium finish in his first ever race, in MSVR's own Lotus Elise Trophy back in 2008!
Assistant Race Operations Manager & MSVR Club Secretary
Simon joined MSVR in early 2012, having spent a number of years as a Race Director and ARKS Instructor at Buckmore Park Kart Circuit in Kent. A Mechanical Engineering graduate, Simon has always had a passion for motorsport and can usually be found in Race Control or Race Admin at event weekends.
At the end of 2015 Simon qualified as a MSA Clerk of the Course, and is one of the youngest in the country.
Assistant Motorsport Events Manager & MSVR Competition Secretary
Joe moved to Kent from his home-county of Cornwall to join the team at the end of 2012, having graduated earlier that year with a degree in Motorsport Management. An avid motorsport fan, Joe is often the first point of contact for our championship coordinators for administrative matters.
Joe is usually based in Race Admin at events, often acting as Secretary of the Meeting. He can often be found organising the podium ceremonies at the end of each race too!
James Bolton King
Motorsport Events Coordinator & MSA Club Safeguarding Officer
James joined the team in the Spring of 2016, having previously worked within Ticketing and Merchandising for the FIA Formula E Championship.
James' main role covers the administrative elements of MSVR's activities, from processing race entries to collating event programme content, as well as preparing event paperwork. James is also based in Race Admin at events, often as Secretary of the Meeting.
Motorsport Events Administrator
Debbie moved over to MSVR in November 2018 to help support the team with their ever growing number of events. Debbie's background is in financial accounts but she is no stranger to the motorsport industry, having previously worked at Brands Hatch in the accounts department.
Debbie's role is part time and includes providing administrative support as well as helping with pre-event preparation.
