Motorsport UK is making plans to restart events safely when the suspension is lifted on June 30. The organization says though there are likely to be restrictions and social distancing in place for some time.
Planning and consultation with stakeholders has taken place, with Motorsport UK adding events take place in large outdoor environments so motorsport should be able to take place with modifications.
Hugh Chambers, CEO of Motorsport UK, said, “We will all need to modify the way we have worked in the past and accept these changes in a collaborative and constructive way. Motorsport has always thrived on innovation and adaptability to overcome problems, and it has been enormously encouraging to see the community come together and freely contributing to re-imagine every part of our sport, and the practicalities of each event.”
In its guidance, ‘Getting Back on Track’, Motorsport UK says permitted events are not likely to resume before July 1.
Rescue and medical personnel will be required to have extra PPE and Motorsport UK is reviewing a central procurement service to ensure the correct standard of equipment is available at competitive prices.
It expects spare parts will be available to purchase at circuit shops and catering facilities should be open providing social distancing is in place.
All participants at events will be required to submit health declarations before the event and anyone who becomes unwell at events will be required to leave.
