UK Motorsport to Resume in July

Encouraging news as UK motorsport is set to resume in July according to the governing body (Motorsport UK). This is one of the first confirmed returns to physical racing in a while – albeit in a phased and restricted manner.

“We always said that, when the conditions were right, we would take a responsible decision to resume motorsport in order to sustain the sport, jobs and the economy,” stated David Richards (chairman of Motorsport UK). He continued: “It is now right that, as government has set out plans to ease restrictions, we move in step and introduce the next stage of our phased restart . . . Our plan is that, subject to government advice and ongoing lifting of restrictions, motorsport will resume from July 4.”

While this is great news because it represents a turning of the tides as such in the fight against COVID-19 (coronavirus) as UK motorsport can resume in July; it is also worth noting that it is not a full return to form just yet. Race organisers can begin to apply for event permits in June, but only half the amount will be made available compared to the same period last year. It comes as little surprise that any racing events held will be held with no spectators in the stands either. One more point to note is that British / national championships are also banned from taking place in the month of July.

So while this is a great development in more ways than one, it also goes some way to show what the ‘new normal’ will be going forward (at least initially). We look forward to this development and know that in the meantime we still have the likes of iRacing and eSports to enjoy as the safest way to race for now.
