Further Easing of Restrictions in England from 19 July

Monday 05 July 2021

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Motorsport UK has moved in step with government guidelines in developing and implementing its Restart Guidance.

Following the announcement today by Prime Minister Boris Johnson regarding the Step 4 changes that are planned to come into force in England on 19th July (to be confirmed following a review of the latest data on 12th July), Motorsport UK will now begin consulting with its medical and safety teams to update its guidance to reflect the easing of restrictions.

Hugh Chambers, CEO Motorsport UK said: “Motorsport UK’s Restart Guidance has provided us with the framework to navigate the essential requirements to keep our community safe, while at the same time enabling our sport to continue when lockdowns were lifted. Although the pandemic is not over, the announcement that Step 4 of the government’s roadmap will be implemented in England from 19th July is extremely welcome news.

“I would like to thank the entire motorsport community for the commitment and resilience in adhering to the protocols we have put in place, which has enabled the sport to resume with no reported cases of COVID-19. We will now review our guidance to reflect the government’s direction, and we look forward to supporting organisers as they plan and run more events during the second half of the year, and ultimately welcome spectators back to the sport they love.”
