After almost two decades, motorsports are making their comeback to Israel.

The Knesset’s Education, Culture and Sports Committee finalized the new motorsports law on Wednesday morning, once again legalizing the sport which was outlawed in the 1990’s.

Minister of Transportation and Road Safety, Yisrael Katz, approved the driving regulations under which motor racing will be held.

The cars taking part in the races will not be allowed to drive on regular roads and will be given a special driver’s license intended for sporting use only.

The first races are expected to take place in three months time.
