Due to the changing nature of current times and the affects the outbreak of Covid-19 is having on our day-to-day lives and many sporting events across the country, this afternoon, Motorsport UK made the following announcement:
“It is with regret that Motorsport UK is suspending all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption until at least 30th April 2020. This suspension follows the latest guidance issued by HM UK Government in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. This position will be constantly reviewed given prevailing information.”
The full bulletin can be found here: https://www.motorsportuk.org/motorsport-uk-covid-19-update/
We support the action taken by UK motorsport’s governing body to help reduce the spread of the virus and assist with its control and speed-up its eventual eradication.
As far as our championship is concerned, this affects the first event scheduled for 17th & 18th April at Silverstone. Consequently – and providing no further restrictions are applied – our opening round will now take place on 6th & 7th June at Croft.
We sincerely hope that for all concerned, this extended seven-week lead-time will enable the situation surrounding Coronavirus to be brought under control and we can get back on track with normality restored.
We will now look at various options, including a revised date for the Silverstone round. We will advise competitors, sponsors and supporters of our future arrangements and plans as soon as possible. Competitors can rest assured that if any events are lost, changes to the entry fees will be applied accordingly.
We will keep you informed if we receive any further updates from Motorsport UK, the BRSCC or our venue operators.
