Rally spill kits that meet MSA regulations

With the Motor Sport Association (MSA) stating that spill kits must be held by both competitors and race organisers themselves, it’s never been so important to make sure you have an MSA approved spill kit at the ready in case of a vehicle liquid spill when you attend a track day.

The new MSA regulations came into force on the 1st of January and state that all competitors should hold a spill kit with at least the capacity to deal with an automotive fluid leak of 1.25 litres.

In rallying, the 2011 MSA ‘blue book’ also states that the emergency and medical services should have an approved MSA spill kit in the disciplines for rescue, safety stage unit and rally recovery, with the responsibility for compliance left with the event organiser.

Rally spill kits

Rally spill kits can clean up spills of automotive liquids such as gasoline, lubrication oil, hydraulic oils and coolant additives. They commonly contain items such as absorbents, a disposable bag and PPE and comply with the new MSA regulation J: 5.20.13, which states:

“It is strongly recommended for all competitors participating in single venue competitions to have available at their paddock base, and for multi venue competitions to carry within their vehicle a self contained spill kit capable of effectively absorbing minor spillages of up to 1.25 litres of all vehicle fluids – oils, fuels, coolants, battery acid. Used spill kits are to be disposed of in accordance with local or National guidelines.”
