In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, the Auto-Cycle Union has today extended its suspension of all organising permits for motorcycle events until at least 31st May but will be constantly reviewed.

This move provides clear guidance to event organisers, clubs, venues, competitors, officials of the role that the Auto-Cycle Union must play in supporting the broader UK public health agenda.

Auto-Cycle Union Chairman, Roy Humphrey explained, “The government have required that we effectively lock-down for a period of three weeks, however given that the most vulnerable in our society are required to isolate for three months, we feel it only sensible to propose a longer suspension for all motorcycle sport. This is a time of national unity and we need to come together with the broader public community to do all we can to support this battle and ultimately save lives.

This evening, Health Secretary, Matt Hancock said the Government is launching a new scheme to recruit 250,000 volunteers to support the NHS through the coronavirus pandemic. A quarter of a million volunteers, people in good health to help the NHS, for shopping, for the delivery of medicines and to support those who are shielding to protect their own health. We may not be involved in any sporting activities, but, we could help support the NHS through this pandemic!" More information can be found here - https://www.goodsamapp.org/NHS

Auto-Cycle Union will continue to monitor the prevailing advice from the UK Government in respect of the COVID-19 international pandemic and will update the motorcycle community accordingly.

It is with regret that the ACU are suspending all competition and social activity until 30th April 2020, but this will be constantly reviewed. This is in response to the emerging guidance issued by HM UK Government in response to the outbreak of COVID-19.

All permits for events during this time will be cancelled and reimbursed in full to the organising club/ promoter. As the National Governing Body would ask all ACU Members to act responsibly and follow the Government’s guidance during this difficult time. We have a responsibility and duty of care to our staff who will be working from home, so please be patient with any queries you may have.

As of writing (17th March 2020) HM Government have advised:

- Persons to work from home where possible

- People over the age of 70 to minimise social contact

- Emergency services will not support mass gatherings

- Stop non-essential travel

- Avoid pubs, clubs, restaurants and cinemas

With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, the ACU is pleased to give two organisers the greatest gift of all. For the first time in the history of the series, the award for organiser of the season has been given to two rounds. Woodbridge DMCC (hosts of the fourth race at Blaxhall) and the Cookstown & District MCC (hosts of round five at Desertmartin) will share the honours.

Woodbridge DMCC have now won this award for four years in succession. Blaxhall is always prepared in an immaculate fashion and plays host to the one of the biggest crowds each season, hence why it is no surprise that they are always in contention for the accolade. Blaxhall will host the fifth round of the 2020 ACU British Motocross Championship on May 31.

The Cookstown & District MCC club first won the organiser of the year award in 2011, then backed that up with another triumph in 2013. This is the first time that they have acquired the trophy since then. Although Desertmartin is a lengthy journey for a lot of the teams and riders, every single person in the paddock looks forward to jumping onto the golden sand. Desertmartin is set to host the sixth 2020 ACU British Motocross Championship round on June 21.

Preparations for the new season are already well underway, with the introduction of new branding for the series. The 2020 ACU British Motocross Championship will begin on March 15 at Little Silver.
