General Excel discussions. You may also post Eclat and Elite information here. If there is enough call I will set up new categories or even a new BB for them.

MSV shuts race meetings

Post by alanmoss »

Announcement today (below) from MSV shutting down race meetings initially until then end of April.

Yesterday (16 March) the UK Government announced further and significant measures designed to suppress the spread of the Coronavirus and limit Covid-19 infections.

These are focused on increasing social isolation. As part of this, it is advised that large gatherings should not take place. The official guidance states:

"In line with the social distancing guidance it is advised that large gatherings should not take place. While the risks of transmitting the disease at mass gatherings are relatively low, these steps will also allow emergency services that would have been deployed for these events to be prioritised in alleviating pressure on public services."

In the circumstances MotorSport UK, the MCRCB and the ACU have taken the decision to suspend all motorsport events until at least the end of April, a decision which will be kept under review as the situation progresses. We fully support that position and therefore confirm that we will be postponing all race events at our circuits due to take place in March and April. We are working with organisers to arrange new calendars for series including British Superbikes and Touring Cars for later in the year, when we hope restrictions will be lifted. We will post regular updates and further information on this page.

For clarity, here is our policy regarding event tickets and raceday hospitality:

In the event a race meeting is postponed, all tickets will be valid for the rescheduled event. If you let us know that you can't make the rescheduled date, you will get a refund. If a race meeting is cancelled entirely and not rescheduled, you will automatically get a refund. We will review the effect on season pass holders throughout the season and ensure that any significant loss of entitlement is managed fairly.

We hope that this approach will provide total comfort and reassurance to our customers. However, should you need to contact us for any other reason you can email activities@msv.com. Please
note there may be a delay of up to 48 hours before you receive a reply. Please do not telephone us for any non-urgent queries.

Just to clarify - Motorsport UK (the governing body of UK motor racing) have currently suspended all motor racing meetings by withdrawing permits currently until the end of April (at least). MSV (Motorsport Vision) - who operate Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Cadwell Park, Oulton Park and Donington are still currently running test dates and track days
