They'll need some form of income - ALL Motorsport UK sanctioned events have been cancelled until May.

Even if (big IF) we get some racing/rallying/ sprinting etc in this year. It will be interesting to see how it will pan out.
Everyone keeps saying they will run their events later in the year, but there are only so many officials and marshals to go round.
Then of course you have to look at how many people are going to be able to afford to go racing. Either because they simply won't have any money or they will be required to work extra to cover the time off.

This is of course without looking at all the companies that supply parts etc to competition cars.

So I can see several clubs folding, maybe even a couple of circuits going. I can also see championships folding or amalgamating.

So what some have seen as a longer term slowing of motorsport in the UK may happen a lot quicker.

CSCC have advised that they will refund all entries for meetings already booked, and hold off issuing entry forms for other events except Spa which is end of June, so just possibly could be on, though I wouldn't hold my breath.


They have through prudent management (and of course strong race entries) built a reasonably strong balance sheet, and seem confident they can ride it out. I hope, though doubt, that the same can be said for every UK race organising Club......

I am more sanguine. This awful thing will have an impact on everything we know , but as we also know from the period immediately post WW 2, once it is over there will be an insatiable demand to get back to doing what we love.



It may be that some clubs will face the stark choice of combining with others or going under . That is going to be very tough , but perhaps the longer term gain will be a more joined up offering , rather than too many fishermen casting into the same small pool?

If (and thats a huge IF) any racing were to take place in 2020, free calendar dates will be prioritised to Grade A championships, BTCC, BSB, British GT etc, there will be no room on the calendar for club motorsport.

Start ovwr next year for sure, but lets hope not too many non-MSV circuits will be affected by essentially writing off a year. I fear for the likes of Mallory, Croft,Lydden etc.

I cant see too many people being in the financial position to indulge in luxuries like going racing then mortgages ad families have to come first. 750MC, BARC etc should be healthy to carry on if they take measure to accept that working together might be necessary for a while to make a race card full enough to sell grids on. Maybe as much as a 50% drop in entrants.

Has MSA mentioned anything about 2020 race licences being valid for '21? A small gesture to help the racer out (but obvious resulting in a drop of income higher up).

BARC have been posting losses for last few years, i think. How big are their reserves? And the MUK have a very high proportion of their turn over as salaries that will still need paying. I am not holding my breath although i think they will need to make some gesture.

There is another way of looking at it. All the big events need big infrastructure, which may be committed to other events come later in the year. Maybe it's the smaller, more nimble organisers that will get things going sooner?.

CSCC have emailed today that their event at Silverstone at the end of August has been cancelled due to the rearrangement of the WEC meeting to the following weekend.

If, of course, that happens...

And now we know that it isn't, which makes the cancellation all the more confusing!

Motorsport UK Announces 1m Club Continuity Funding Package.

Quote:
David Richards, chairman of Motorsport UK, said, “These are unprecedented times for the nation and for motorsport. Our community looks to us to provide leadership and help protect motorsport from the financial fallout of this pandemic. We have taken measures to reduce the overheads of the core organisation, while continuing to provide the essential levels of service to the sport. Today we have launched a series of financial measures that member clubs can access, in order to try and mitigate some of the hardship they are inevitably suffering.

“During this time, there is a spirit that we are all in this together, and it is only right that Motorsport UK takes practical measures to reduce expenditure, while launching these funds to preserve those responsible for organising events, without whom there can be no motorsport. We are custodians of motorsport in the UK and have a responsibility to our clubs, to do all that we realistically can, to sustain their operations at this uniquely challenging time.”
