Following the UK Governments latest advice concerning this Virus, we have held our meeting to discuss what our next steps should be concerning running meetings at Stansted raceway. We will need to follow the advice of all the specialist organizations and act on it. The Government have removed any response from the emergency services to events and they have also advised that people should not gather in large groups of 500 or more. For the health and safety of our staff, teams and spectators we require the emergency services to be on hand if we need to use them although we employ our own first aid team and have many other first aiders on site. We also have over 500 people attending each meeting throughout the year.
Whilst we understand closing our venue till further notice will upset spectators and race teams alike it is a necessary evil we cannot avoid. We have never run our raceway to make large profits and closing will be tough for us but the well being of all our staff, teams and spectators must be at the forefront of everything we do.
Please enjoy your time away from racing and stay healthy and safe during this difficult time.
We will inform you all when the Government guidelines change and allow us to start our season, this will be posted on here and emailed to you closer to the time.
Just for your information here is a link to the Government website regarding Covid 19

Just to be clear
There has been a huge amount of noise on social media concerning other promoters banning or reprimanding drivers that hold their licences who choose to race THEIR cars built by THEM with THEIR money at other tracks. So we thought it prudent to inform you before you pay for our licence what our position is on this issue. We want you to race with us as often as possible as you are the ones who bring in the spectators and make this possible. If you choose to race at other tracks as well that is absolutely fine (although we would urge to support an independent), you will not be banned or disciplined. Just tell them how good Stansted is that is all we ask. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Drivers and Mechanic's please keep up to date with the important information posted on your NOTICE BOARD. This is located in the Driver and Mechanics menu or click this link There are some important rule changes for the B2B Formula and Ramp roll over competition up on the NOTICE BOARD please read these and adhere to them they are for your safety. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ You can now sign up to our email service to keep up to date with track information, rescheduled meetings and other important news.
