Coronavirus - update

Posted on 12 March 2020 at 10:56am

The coronavirus (“COVID-19”) is causing concern worldwide, with Governments and the World Health Organisation (WHO) issuing regular updates and guidance around prevention and treatment.

We are monitoring the situation closely and listening to official advice from the NHS, Public Health England, HM Government and our governing body the NKA.

We will continue to operate as usual, running all of our Private and Public events. Until we are told by Government or Public Health England that we are required to closed or suspended certain events. We do not envisage this happening in the short term.

Although some European sporting events are being held behind closed doors, this is not the current advice from the UK Government.

During this time we are taking additional steps to protect our staff and our customers while at our venue this included but not limited to;

  • Requiring drivers to wear their own balaclava and gloves [which are available to purchase from us] and then take them away with them when they have finished racing.
  • Single-use balaclavas are available and can be disposed of after use
  • All reusable gloves will be washed and dried after each use.
  • All race suits will be washed dried after each use as usual.
  • All helmets are sprayed with sanitiser and cleaned around the mouth and visor with antibacterial spray after each use.

We have taken steps to deep clean our venue and will continue to stick to a rigorous cleaning schedule during this outbreak.

Additional hand towels and soap is being made available in the toilets – please pay attention to the advice of Public Health England and wash your hands thoroughly multiple times a day and avoid touching your face and mouths with your hands.
