SROC 2 day CCV team trial postponed until 2021

Whilst the news that Motorsport UK is looking to restart motorsport in the UK from 1st July is fantastic news, SROC does not feel that the restrictions will have been lifted enough to allow our 2-Day CCV Team Trial to run. Events may start in July, but these will be with restrictions; neither passengers nor spectators will be allowed, no vehicle sharing and events laid out to avoid risk to name but a few. With the 2-Day being one of the premier events on the ALRC calendar, we do not feel what is a team event can run and do it’s challenging nature justice. Added to this it is unlikely overnight stays will be allowed by then and there is also the morality of encouraging people to travel around the country whilst we are all still dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.

We have therefore decided to postpone this year’s event until next year, 7th & 8th August 2021 when we will return to Knowle Farm for two days of great trialling. Please keep an eye on our website in the new year for the SR’s and entry, or email the Event Director at 2dayevent@sroc.co.uk and ask to be sent a copy when they are published.

Although this will be disappointing to those of you that have tried the event and know how good it is, we hope you will agree that it is the responsible decision.

MSUK permit suspension to 30th June

Motorsport UK Extends Suspension of Motorsport Permits to 30th June

Tuesday 24 March 2020

In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, Motorsport UK has today extended its suspension of all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption for motorsport events until at least 30th June.

This move provides clear guidance to event organisers, venues, competitors, officials and volunteer marshals of the role that Motorsport UK must play in supporting the broader UK public health agenda.

In recent days the feedback from our members and the community was a need for increased clarity to allow them to plan appropriately and, should the need arise, put in place necessary contingency measures.

Motorsport UK Chairman, David Richards explained, “Motorsport UK has a vital role to play with its community in re-inforcing that, at this time of national emergency, we must all stay at home to play our part in protecting the NHS and ultimately saving lives.  Today, the government have required that we effectively lock-down for a period of three weeks, however given that the most vulnerable in our society are required to isolate for three months, it is evident that the most responsible course of action was to propose a longer suspension of our sport.  When we reflect back on this time, it will be a brief, but vital, hiatus from our everyday motorsport life and we must put this in perspective.  This is a time of national unity and we need to come together with the broader public community to do all we can to support this battle and ultimately save lives.”

Motorsport UK will continue to monitor the prevailing advice from the UK Government in respect of the COVID-19 international pandemic and will update the motorsport community accordingly.
