August 2020 – British Hill Climb Championship and BHC Cup

NOTE: This statement was originally due for release on Friday 12th June at 10:00 and has been changed to reflect announcements made during that day.


BARC South West have decided, after much discussion, that we will not be running the British Hill Climb and BHC Cup event planned for the August bank holiday weekend. 

Our final decision was made on Friday morning, prior to the announcement by the British Hill Climb Championship that they have cancelled their 2020 championship.

September 2020 – Club Meeting

BARC South West regret to announce that we are cancelling our September club meeting.

However, we are now working towards running just one meeting in 2020. Obviously, subject to the Motorsport UK’s guidelines and any government restrictions in force at the time.

This meeting will take place over the August bank holiday weekend vacated by the BHC event. We believe that this will give us time and enable us to organise the meeting.

August 2020 – Club Meeting

The August 2020 meeting will be a Club Event.

The precise format of the meeting in August has yet to be formally decided, although we expect it to be a one day event on Sunday 30th. As you will appreciate, we have a number of issues that will need to be addressed prior to running the meeting. These include safety issues, other logistical issues as well as the financial implications that come about running a motorsport event during these times.

Once we have formulated solutions to these issues, that are both workable and feasible, within the guidelines and time-frame, we will let you know.

More updates as soon as we have them.
