“I want to thank Max for his leadership and great work, he has been a true champion of road safety and an inspiration.”

Max Mosley, outgoing Global NCAP Chairman said:

“I wish Lauchlan the best of luck in his new position.

I’m confident he will do a great job and happy to have left Global NCAP in his charge.”
