stated aim of GRASA is to further at all times the best interest
of Grass Track racing.
To Claim from the Injured riders fund you must be a fully
paid up member of Grasa, you must be Injured at a grass
track meeting in this country or abroad.You need to be
able to supply a photo copy of your Doctors certificate.
Payment is £120 a week for up to 4 weeks (or 6 weeks
for serious injury depending on your Doctors certificate)
Payment on death of a member rider is to his next of kin
and is £500. Youth riders receive a third of the
adult payment as they pay £7.50 membership.
All money for the Injured Riders Fund is raised by sales
from the Grasa Stall and Tombola and Donations usually
in memory of a relative or friend.
GRASA originally started as a mouthpiece for sidecar drivers
against the ACU when the ACU were considering a complete ban
of superchargers on 1000cc sidecar engines From this humble
beginning GRASA has evolved to become a Nation wide club catering
for all Grass track enthusiasts, whether spectators, marshals,
organisers or competitors.
Over the years GRASA has been involved in many activities,
these include representing riders in disputes, assisting clubs,
and the annual presentation of the Rider of the year awards
Probably the most important thing GRASA is involved in is
the INJURED RIDERS FUND Through the INJURED RIDERS FUND they
offer members financial assistance when they are injured whilst
riding at Grass Track meetings in this country and abroad,
whilst not a massive sum a cheque from the fund can help in
the first few weeks of injury. The Injured Riders Fund is
funded by sales from the GRASA stall, tombola's, donations
etc, all helpers do so on a voluntary basis.
Rates for 2019 are as follows.....
week 1 £120
week 2 £240
week 3 £360
week 4 £480
Please note figures are totals of payments,
not weekly payment.
Youth Riders will receive 1/3 of the advertised rate as
their membership is (approx) 1/3 of cost of adult member All
claims MUST be accompanied by a valid Doctors certificate
. We will continue to give discretional payments in cases
Grasa is NOT an Insurance, the Injured RidersFund was set
up to assist member riders in the first few weeks of injury
whilst they wait for their own Insurance to pay out. It only
pays out for 4 weeks maximum. All Riders should make sure
they have their own insurance in place before they put a wheel
on the track.
At present any member rider injured at GRASSTRACK meeting
in this country or abroad can make a claim from the Injured
Phone Di on 02392-644061 for a claim form, or pick one up
from the GRASA stall. We will require a copy of a valid Doctors
certificate to cover the injury and will pay out for up to
four weeks. (Not bad for £7 per year!).
