Restarting of Events
Events are now restarting in line with permission from Motor Sports UK . We have worked very hard to write out guidance in line with both Government advice and Motorsports UK Guidance.
Next we have:-
Stainby Comp Safari
16th August 2020
Each event includes full instruction on how to register your interest, submit your health and vehicle declaration, forward copies of both membership cards and RS Clubman’s licences and make pre payment.
Spectators/Photographers/Media are also not permitted.
Please bear with us until everyone gets used to this new way of working and help us to keep you safe and well.
For your information:-
The Championship for 2020 for Comp Safari and CCV will remain in place. The RTV championship will be dropped for the remainder of the year. This decision follows consultation with the drivers.
Vehicle sharing/Double Driving/Navigators is now permitted at this time with the following guidance being upheld:-
You can now have a Navigator provided they are either from your own household, in your “social bubble” or if both the driver and the navigator wear PPE. Acceptable PPE includes a full face helmet with visor closed or a close fitting balaclava or mask. Gloves must also be worn.
Vehicle sharing is now permitted. If the person sharing is from the same household or in your “Social Bubble” no PPE is required whilst competing. If the other person is not from your own household then the vehicle should be sanitised between the users on touch points such as handbrake, steering wheel gearstick etc. Persons sharing a vehicle should be positioned within the running order for events to enable adequate cleaning to be done between runs.
Camping at Events
We can now resume camping at events where allowed. All COVID-19 guidance applies to camping. Camping is also at the absolute discretion of the land owners.
Malachi Comp Safari
A some of you know it is with regret we are unable to hold the Malachi Comp Safari this year as we are unable to use the normal venue. At this moment in time we are looking for an alternative venue to hold a Comp in its place and we will keep you updated on this.
We have decided within Committee to roll over your 2020 membership to also cover 2021. This gesture is to compensate for our reduced calendar due to Covid 19. The reduced membership fee (usually from August onwards) will therefore not apply for the remainder of this year and all full memberships will remain at £25.
**PLEASE USE THE LINK BELOW TO KEEP YOURSELF INFORMED. MEETING MINUTES, RULES CHANGES, NEWS ETC. ARE ALL AVAILABLE ON THE ALRC PAGE.**
AFTER CAREFUL CONSIDERATION AND DISCUSSION WITHIN COMMITTEE AS CHAIRMAN I REQUEST THAT THE GREEN LANE FROM CLAXBY HOUSE FARM TO WALESBY IS NOT TO BE DRIVEN BY ANY MEMBER OF THE LINCOLNSHIRE LAND ROVER CLUB.
THIS DECISION HAS NOT BEEN TAKEN LIGHTLY BUT HAS BEEN MADE OUT OF RESPECT TO THE LAND OWNER AND THAT THE LANE NEEDS TIME TO RECOVER FROM THE ABUSE IT CONTINUES TO RECEIVE.
I AM CONFIDENT THAT ALL OUR MEMBERS WHO ENJOY THEIR MOTORSPORT WITHIN THE CLUB ABIDE BY THE RULES AND THAT THE VAST MAJORITY ARE ALREADY AWARE THAT THIS IS A SENSITIVE ISSUE AT PRESENT.
This greenlane is now closed.
RS Clubman licences
Please remember that for any event from Jan 1st 2020, whether you are driver or navigator, you must have an RS Clubmans licence. These are easily obtained Free of Charge by visiting the Motorsport Uk website and following the instructions.
We are always on the look out for suitable land for holding our events. If you know of any venues that you would like Committee to take a look at please let us know.
Always required at all events. In fact we cannot allow events to go ahead without you. Thank you to those people who regularly turn up to help. If you fancy a go then please let us know.
The most basic expectation of any competitor is that he or she is competing fairly against every other competitor in the event and the only way of ensuring that is if we are all playing by the same set of rules.
Therefore, before setting off for any competitive event, please take the time to satisfy yourself that, when presented for scrutineering, your vehicle will comply, in all respects, with the regulations set out in great detail in the ALRC ‘Green Book’. If you do not have a copy, see any Committee Member. We have these things coming out of our ears.
This reminder is not aimed at any individual and certainly is not intended to prevent anyone enjoying themselves – quite the opposite in fact.
There is a very apt paragraph on page 8 of the Green Book under the heading Competition Scrutineering.
‘The Association does not employ any professionals to carry out or assist in what is generally considered to be one of the most onerous appointments within motors sport eventing. Furthermore there are none of the verifications which other branches of motor sport take for granted, such as weighing the vehicle or dismantling an engine to confirm it is to manufacturer’s specification. Trust is placed on the competitor to comply with the spirit of the regulations.’
