I hope I am finding you all hale and hearty, and the worst of your feelings are frustration at not being able to live the life and do the things we used to.

I am not going to go into the details of what is still a national and worldwide emergency, the likes of which have not been seen in any of our lifetimes. It is, suffice to say, that Covid 19 is still a clear and present danger to us all, albeit in varying degrees depending on your age or health status.

Obviously, as an ACU affiliated Club we are bound to a large extent by the guidance they are giving, regarding being able to run events. Their guidance is in turn dependant on advice coming from the Government, which is being updated on a regular basis. As things stand at this time, the guidance given and the restrictions imposed make holding events in all our three disciplines unworkable and uneconomic.

We are, however, hopeful that the situation will improve in the medium term, and that we will be able to get some events up and running from August or September onwards. Our teams of organisers are as keen to get going as you are to get your bike out; we are looking at what procedures and protections we need to put in place to safeguard everybody's wellbeing. There are likely to be strict restrictions on the numbers of riders, how many people can accompany any rider, food outlets and many other things that we have come to accept as normal. The world is now a very different place, but we will do our best to get our sports going again as soon as we are able.

In the meantime, please stay safe and vigilant.

Trevor Andrews.

All Members

As a Club we are aware that some of the Motocross Practice venues in the area are planning to reopen this weekend, while others will remain closed for a bit longer.

Just like everyone we are keen to see the sport restart but only when it is safe to do so. As a club we have been following the ACU and Government guidance relating to the Lockdown and the return to events from the 4th July.

The club recommend that members continue to follow the latest government advice, that is people can go outside more than once a day for exercise, alone, with members of their household, or with 1 person from outside of their household as long as they are following social distancing guidelines. You must still only exercise in groups of no more than 2 people, unless you are exercising exclusively with members of your household.

You can now travel for physical activity. Ideally use your nearest, local appropriate venue to reduce pressure on transport infrastructure. But you can travel to outdoor open space irrespective of distance. You shouldn’t travel with someone from outside your household unless you can practise social distancing.

Please find below the latest UK Government advice for the phased return of sport and recreation in England.

Following the latest announcement from the ACU last week, the club can confirm that the Sprint Enduro scheduled for the 21st June at Blaxhall has now been Cancelled.

As a club we have been reviewing the latest guidelines from the ACU and will be reviewing our plans for future events.

The ACU Board of Directors met virtually yesterday (12th May 2020) to discuss the phased return to motorcycle sport following Monday’s publication of the UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy.

The ACU, in partnership with the AMCA, have decided that a phased return to sporting events will commence in parallel with the Government’s Step Three. This coincides with the reopening of remaining business, public places and leisure facilities which have been required to close. As of 12th May, Step Three is due to begin from 4th July but this is under constant review. We will assess the situation again when the Government implements Step Two, envisaged to be the 1st June.

In the coming weeks, the ACU and AMCA will publish guidance documents for organisers looking to run restricted events after this time. This will give organisers time to consider the implications of continued social distancing and prepare future events safely.

In order to reflect the differences in devolved administrations, no British Championship Enduro, Motocross, Trials or Speedway will take place until travel restrictions between England/ Scotland/ Wales/ Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man have been lifted and other factors considered, in line with Government guidance.

The ACU and AMCA would like to thank all our members for their patience during this difficult time, and we appreciate the steps taken by many individuals, clubs and organisations to support local communities during these unprecedented events.

For further information, please see the ACU’s Coronavirus Operational Plan - https://www.acu.org.uk/Uploaded/1/Documents/2020%20Event%20Paperwork/Coronavirus-Operational-Plan.pdf

We would remind all members that these plans are subject to change, and will be taken in line with the latest UK Government guidance.
