COVID-19 UPDATE FROM MSE
23rd March 2020
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we write to advise that we are cancelling our events throughout March and April. We hoped that we would be able to carry on through these tough times, but if we operate, we would all be going against the latest government advice and we will not do that. We all have to be responsible and try our absolute best to stop the spread of covid-19.
This is the email we didn't want to send. We had hoped to provide you all with a fun day out, doing what we all love in the most uncertain of times and had planned many new measures to minimise the risk, but it is very clear we have to shut up shop for now. We do hope to be able to run in May, but at this time that remains uncertain as does everything.
If you have a booking with us during either March or April. This will remain as a credit with us until you can use it, even if that's in a few years time. If you know the event you would like to attend please email us and we will transfer you, if you do not know, then sit tight and email us when you do. Obviously all dates are subject to availability.
If you can avoid calling us then please do, please use email as our lines are very busy at the moment, apologies if that sounds rather anti-social, that's not our intention. If you really do need to call our new number is 01225 862360.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been extremely grateful for many kind emails and it is clear that you all want to continue doing track days with us, thanks so much for your support.
Times will be very challenging for us all for the next few months. We are very proud of Motorsport Events and what we represent, a family business like ours will suffer, but we are very determined people and will be back as soon as the current crisis passes.
The spread of this awful virus has been unprecedented, by curtailing events for now we are doing the right thing. Most importantly is that we all follow the UK government guidelines, stay safe and healthy and of course be kind to everyone.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you on track again soon.

The COVID-19 situation is constantly changing, here we can keep you updated with the status concerning our track days.
Currently our events are going ahead with extra precautions to minimise risk to guests and staff. If an event is cancelled we will inform participants by email and post updates on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/motorsporteventsltd/ . Calling or emailing will not give any more information than we post online, we will notify guests immediately of changes.
There are simple steps we can all take to minimise risk and be considerate of others.
1. We would advise you to bring your own anti bacterial hand sanitiser and use it regularly.2. Please fill in and bring your indemnity form with you and ask your guests to do the same as this means less contact and also less time in the signing on area. Although we will be providing blank forms we will not be providing pens, so please bring your own if needed.3. If you have to queue to sign on please allow a reasonable distance between you and other guests.4. All drivers need to show their licence. Please have it ready so that we do not have to handle it unless we request to do so.5. The briefing will take place outside even if it's raining so please bring an umbrella.6. Passengers do not need to attend the briefing.7. If you have attended an event at the venue within the last 12 months with us (not another organiser), then you may be exempt from the briefing. Those who are exempt will be notified and if you haven't been notified you MUST attend. We are doing this to minimise numbers.8. We will still be attaching wristbands to all guests however staff will sanitise prior to this.
At our airfield events the catering van is outside and you can take your food to your car or own space easily. At circuits we are aware that lunch slots will be longer to allow guests to spread the time they eat to minimise the numbers of guests eating at any one time. This will be explained on the day.
Final instructions including the indemnity form for all of our venues can be found here:
We urge guests to regularly wash hands and watch the government website for further information on this constantly changing situation.
Please do not bring anyone over the age of 70 or those from one of the at risk groups.
