Covid-19

Click here to read all the updates from the BRCA Sections about their national series for 2020 with the Covid-19 outbreak. This will updated everytime something changes so keep checking back! 

 

Updated 24/03/20

Please see below the different plans and announcement’s for the various sections about their national series during this Covid-19 Outbreak

12th Circuit

The intention is not to set out what we want, but rather to take a lead from the clubs within our regional framework as to what works for them.  The objective is to provide from that framework a calendar of events that you can go to, to support clubs and get racing again.  We also hope that at some point we could organise a single, bonanza event for all the best drivers in each region to come and race. (Pete Winton)

Round 4 have been cancelled. Hopefully rearrange these at a later date

10th Off Road Trucks 

All rounds have been cancelled. However the september date will be retained for a one off meeting if able 

10th Electric Circuit

The 2020 National Series has been cancelled. Please email brca10ecrefunds@gmail.com if you require a refund. Entry fees that haven't been refunded/requested by September 30th will be donated to the National/Regional Clubs

10th IC Circuit

All events have been cancelled for 2020, However hopefully to run some sort of series later on in the year 

8th Circuit

The 1/8th Circuit committee have been in contact with all of tracks we have the pleasure of visiting each year, investigating what could be feasible when the restrictions allow and based on the stated social distancing and current guidance from the government. We will be guided by the respective tracks / club committees as to what we can do and when, but rest assured we all want to get racing to support the clubs, help our drivers and assist the RC industry as soon as we can.

When we do get out to the track it will be very different, social distancing is likely to be here for many months to come, so pitting will need to be spaced correctly with restrictions on the amount of drivers on the rostrum. PPE may need to be enforced with potentially face masks being worn at all times and gloves being mandatory for marshalling etc.

The key point here is we are working all scenarios with the clubs to get us racing again as soon as we can.

We are yet to see if travel will be restricted around the country, hotels and the hospitality industry may have significant restrictions and so the format for our meetings may need to change, but we are considering all these elements. If travel is restricted, perhaps we go to regional meetings, one day events may be easier than our two day meetings so our race format may change, everything is open for consideration. We need to be guided by our clubs and how they want to see the meetings run, the clubs are the foundation of our racing and so they will dictate what we can and can’t do and we need to fully respect their position.

We would like to see a 2020 championship and we can assure that if it at all feasible we will run a championship calendar to support this objective, but please bear in mind we can only start when the government guidance and the clubs allow us to race. We thank you all for your support during this difficult time. Please Stay Safe, Support the clubs, help our drivers and assist the RC industry and hopefully soon we will be trackside.

Large Scale Off Road

Given the on-going uncertainty due to the COVID-19 situation and the recent BRCA wide announcement that all nationals have been postponed or cancelled to end of June 2020, that does mean that we have now formally cancelled R3 and R4 of the 2020 BRCA LSOR National Series. Refunds to those have paid already will be made in the coming days.

Furthermore, the section have decided to make a donation to the clubs that should have held nationals in the first 4 rounds to help support our clubs through this difficult period. Without tracks and clubs to race at we do not have a section or even a national series.

We will continue to make donations to any further cancellations due to the COVID-19 situation should they arise.

We will not be making announcements regarding the remaining rounds of the 2020 National Series or the rescheduling of already cancelled rounds until we understand more about the situation as it develops.

We do promise though that once we are able to go back racing, we will do everything we can to get back racing quickly and safely in line with any government guidelines.

 Finally, we hope you are your families are staying safe.
