BARC South West Statement – Our July 2020 Meetings

As most of you will know, on the 20th May, Motorsport UK issued guidance to assist with the restart of motorsport in the UK. The guidance details a raft of recommendations for all elements of running an event. MSUK issued it’s PPE recommendations on 22nd May.

Here’s a link to the MotorsportUK Guidance in full

After considerable discussion and thought, BARC South West have decided to cancel the two July meetings that were due to be held on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July 2020.

MSUK’s guidance and the current social distancing requirements would lead to entries being restricted to around 70 cars.

The club has a responsibility to all of the stake-holders involved in our meetings. That’s everyone from the drivers, riders, marshals, officals, the wider community, to our suppliers and sponsors, our cleaners and ultimately to BARC SW members.

There are many points in the guidance that could be overcome but not within the time-frame for organising the July meetings.

We will update you when we are able on our August and September meetings.
