Motorsport UK confirms motorsport will restart in England on 2 December

Tuesday 24 November 2020

Motorsport UK confirms that the sport will resume in England with effect from 2 December, subject to local restrictions.

This confirmation follows the announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the second lockdown imposed on 4 November will be lifted as planned, and sport may restart in line with the regional tier system. Furthermore, venues in Tier 1 and Tier 2 regions will be allowed to admit spectators on a limited basis.

Motorsport UK will resume the sport in accordance with its Getting Back on Track protocols, which have guided the safe resumption of the sport since the lifting of the first lockdown on 4 July. The governing body will also liaise with the DCMS and stakeholders to ensure the application of the spectator guidelines by clubs and venues.

Motorsport activities in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are subject to prevailing government guidance in those devolved territories.
