We are sad to advise that in view of the recent government advice and the decisions taken by the joint councils of ACU, Motorsport UK and others today we have no alternative but to declare our Silverstone round cancelled.
The Bemsee Board was about to make the same decision before the decisions of our governing bodies overtook us. It is not possible to morally defend running a race meeting and potentially taking NHS resource away from dealing with the virus.
The cancellation of events will affect a number of our forthcoming rounds. It is too early to say when we may be in a position to resume racing.
Of course no entry fee money has been taken for Silverstone at this stage.
We will be liaising with the circuit owners with regard to circuit hire fees that have been paid in advance and we will keep our membership informed of the outcome of those discussions.
We wish you all well, please stay safe and let's look forward to the day that the Chequered Flag flies again.
