Hi all, Well, we all had the massive amounts of rain yesterday, and I knew it was coming and made plans for it, based on the weather report we had available a few days ago. As expected the place is even more Flooded today, but I was hoping a lot of work with our digger and dry weather we could get the meeting on. Sadly, we now have more rain coming Saturday night, this is the final nail in the coffin ladies and gents. Gutted to say this but the 2020 season is over for Stansted raceway. Thank you to everyone for all your help and support, without you all we are just another field in the countryside, with you, we make it a field of dreams! We are pushing on throughout winter to continue to make improvements to the raceway, and are hoping things will get back to normal in 2021, where we will come back bigger and better! Thank you all so much, for everything, we are as gutted as you all are. See you all in April 2021 Much love Tel and the Stansted raceway team.
1. When driving to and from our Raceway KEEP TO THE SPEED LIMITS! We arrive early with big noisy lorry's please respect the villages you drive through and the people who live in them. Anyone caught breaking the speed limits or found driving in an anti-social manner while representing the raceway will face our disciplinary procedure and may be banned.
2. Please arrive in your spectator bubble of no more than six and from the same household together with your track and trace form.
3. You will need to wear a face mask when paying at the gate, food, drink, ice cream or any other stalls present, Please pay with correct change and queue 2 meters apart.
4. Keep 2 meters apart from any other spectator bubble.
5. Please bag up and take ALL your own rubbish with you or ensure it is placed in our bins for safe disposal so others can avoid any contact.
6. Leave the washrooms in the same condition you expect to find them.
The team at Stansted raceway would like to apologize to Spectators and the Race teams for the uncontrollable disruption to your race season. Clearly Covid-19 has had a huge impact on all of us and to add salt to the wound the weather has been wonderful while we have been in lockdown. But now we are back and able to race in a limited capacity the weather has taken a turn for the worse and is also unpredictable, to say the least, causing the racetrack and pits to flood.
We clearly have a responsibility to keep spectators, race teams and our dedicated staff safe. We won't ever put your safety before profits. Financially the gates need to be open so we don't take these decisions lightly.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the patience and dedication of spectators, teams and our staff for your unwavering and loyal support.
To coin a phrase
2020 has been an absolute car crash
If you haven't already sent your licence application form off do it now !!! The address is on the forms and the instructions for payment is also there. If you're new to the sport and fancy a go, no problem click here
Build rules and regulations can be found here _________________________________________________________________________________________________
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.
