Requirements in England after the 20th December.

Please Remember - None of what follows is the Executive 'making up rules' all the below is simply the distributed requirments from the various bits of government condensed and with the correct terminology for what we do, that is the Associations task and is what is required of us. We don't have any authority to relax government regulation, we could theoretically tighten them but none of the below does.

 

Revert from the Full Lockdown back to a Tier system.

All the existing operational guidelines are current.

Tier 4 - No Race meeting or practice events.

 

Indoor racing

  • Tier 3 - Not Allowed.
  • Tier 4 - Not Allowed

Travel

  • If you live in a Tier 1 area and travel to a Tier 2 area to race you must observe the tier 2 rules while there
  • If you live in a Tier 2 area and travel to a tier 1 area to race you must continue to follow tier 2 rules as they apply to a person.
  • If you live in a Tier 1 or 2 area but the Nearest Venue to you is in Tier 3 - then the club you are going to Must be happy to accept your entry and Know what you are doing. 
  • If you live in a Tier 3 area, you should avoid travelling outside of your area to race; - if you need to do so, as there is No Venue Closer, then the club you are going too Must be happy to accept your entry and Know what you are doing.
  • If you live in a Tier 4 area you Must Not travel to an event.

NOTE:- The items about Tier 3 Travel cause confusion, it is correct, it has been checked, it's Exactly the Same Regulations that are, for example, allowing our friends in the full sized community to be operating.

it is Recommended that this information be checked reguarly as it does change.

 

You will have now seen several different sets of information issued by the Association to you as individuals and to our Clubs, this document is intended to illustrate how and where they come from.

There is plenty for us to consider over the next few weeks and months, including how we implement changes required and how we get to the future for model motorsport in the UK.  Some clubs are facing difficult times right now, so here’s how we could help.
