Whilst the racing season is still some weeks away, this time of year is spent on getting things in motion for next season.    Talking with drivers and teams about their requirements, arranging season passes with circuits and series.

The application form for the 2012 MSV media pass dropped into my inbox this week, so filled it in, sent off my supporting documentation and some mugshots from the passport photo machine and two days later my fresh minty pass arrived. ¬† Top marks to Richard at MSV as I wasn’t expecting it to arrive until after the closing date for applications at the end of February.

Having one of these makes life a lot simpler as I don’t have to apply each time for accreditation for an event at an MSV circuit.
