Motorsport UK confirms motorsport will restart in England from 29 March
Motorsport UK is pleased to announce that organised Permitted motorsport can resume in England with effect from 29 March, subject to local restrictions and in accordance with its own Restart Guidance.
This confirmation follows the announcement on 22 February by Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the third lockdown imposed on 4 January will be lifted, and formally organised outdoor sports for adults and under 18s can also restart but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies.
As the applicable governing body for the sport, Motorsport UK will now begin granting Permits for all disciplines, and applications are invited in the usual way.

For your information:-
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 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 PPE is not required. 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.
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, these Will be sent out soon
**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 2021, 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.’
