Crimond raceway statement on the 2020 season

Since the lock down started in March 2020 we have been monitoring the ongoing situation with the Covid 19 Corona virus and been kept updated by the ORCi on any possible changes to allow a return to any form of racing.

There has been a different approach by the English and Scottish Governments on lifting current restrictions with the Scottish Government being the more cautious resulting in conflicting decisions being made. 

Recent lifting of some restrictions have allowed practice type events to be held but with no spectators. Some race meetings in England have now been trialed with spectators but with restrictions on spectator numbers and movements at the race meetings and with all spectator/driver entries to be pre-booked and paid for on line. 

With all the recent changes a Crimond raceway committee meeting was held on Sunday 19th July to discuss the way forward for the remainder of the 2020 season.

After looking at all the current restrictions still in place and the possible timeline for the lifting of the remaining restrictions, a vote was taken on how we proceed in 2020. The decision was to “NOT” hold any more practice or race meetings for the remainder of the 2020 Crimond raceway season.

The decision was passed on a majority vote.

No doubt this decision will be disappointing to many drivers & spectators but the majority of the committee felt it was the right thing to do till this Covid 19 virus situation has been resolved or brought under control and we can return to some sort of normal life, hopefully by March 2021!

2020 is the clubs 50th year and events were organised to help celebrate this but the health and safety of all who attend our race meetings must come first so they will be put on hold till next year when, hopefully, we can celebrate our 50 + 1 anniversary.
