Welcome to the Southern Rover Owners Club

Possible motor sport restart

Hi everyone,
Hope you all are well and safe.
Motorsport UK have released the first draft of the route out of motor sport lockdown, but I must make you aware that the possible restart date of 1st July is only a suggested point on the calendar and not a definite. The committee is making plans to get events running again in the future, within the guidelines given as soon as we can. These events will be very different; all officials have to be in place and signed in online before the event as will the competitors, there will be no helpers or entrants on the day, no spectators, the clerks will have to layout events with little chance of an accident or a recovery,  the scrutineering will change, no passengers and no shared vehicles…  And this may all change if the government guidance changes. More information is on the Motorsport UK website.
So please be patient with us on the committee as we are trying to get you back in your motors but it is going to take a bit more thought and planning than before. Rest assured, we are doing everything we can.
Please stay safe and we hope to see you all soon.

Many thanks ,
Rod.

Events restart – not yet…

In light of the responses we have had back about possibly restarting events in July, it seems that there isn’t the enthusiasm to have the sort of events we could safely run. We have therefore decided to hold off organising events for now, with a view to looking at it again in another few weeks. It is hoped that by then some more of the lockdown restrictions would have been lifted and we could perhaps enjoy the August Bank Holiday weekend at Copford.

Potential restart of events

With the potential easing of the lockdown, the committee is tentatively looking at restarting events again at the end of July, but we are aware that many of our members whilst not being classed as high risk themselves they are living with someone that is.
As it stands these events would be with a list of restrictions that currently include: No vehicle sharing (not just double drives from the start but if you break it on the first section your out and all officials will have to get themselves around the site); No passengers (so no unlicensed drivers); having to sign on before the cut off date (so no pay on the day & if you sign on then can’t make it there will be no refund, and all officials have to be in place before the cut off); No spectators (so only officials and entrants allowed on site, no friends or family can came along for a day out); risk averse sections to avoid any accidents or the need for recovery (so the events will be quite tame); social distancing at all times (so if you break it you are on your own)…
We welcome your feedback – there is no point in us doing the work to lay on events of it isn’t what you want at this time. It would be appreciated if you could let us know by emailing your thoughts either way to chairman@sroc.co.uk
