Motorsport Industry Re-opening
Posted: 03 June 2020
With more news last week from the Government relaxing some of the lockdown restrictions we have been excited to see some of the industries we support and work closely with being able to go back to work.
We know it will probably be quite a while until industries, such as events will be back up and running and even the motorsport industry is not going to be ‘back to normal' any time soon. With that in mind, Motorsport UK has drawn up guidance to event organisers, officials and competitors to what measures will need to be in place to enable the resumption of motorsport.
Obviously the guidance is subject to change and there's no precise dates or timeframes that have been applied to these measures, but there is an emphasis on social distancing and increased use of online methods to handle many aspects of people attending the events. Some of those guidelines include - "All competitors, officials and members of the media will need to sign a pre-event declaration to state that they have not suffered COVID-19 symptoms within the two weeks preceding the event."

It is good to see that companies like Mclaren and Caterham are able to head back to work and even better that we are already hearing from them to place orders, this case recently being to shipped to Mclaren.
This is doubly good news for us as we have our Hot Desk at Silverstone Innovation Centre, and it's been good to hear from some of the companies that arrived back there on Monday. We have no plans to visit our Hot Desk or our customers at Silverstone, as of yet, but we look forward to the point that we can reacquaint ourselves there.
