With the light at the end of the lockdown tunnel slowly appearing we’re warming up our engines and preparing to get back out on the track.
Earlier this week we saw the NSW Roadmap to Freedom released by the Government suggesting that by late October “stay-at-home orders for adults who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be lifted from the Monday after NSW passes the 70% double vaccination target.”
For the motorsport & racing community, the latest media release also suggests that once the double vaccine target has been hit in NSW “major recreation outdoor facilities including stadiums and racecourses can reopen with 1 person per 4 sqm, capped at 5000 people.”
At this stage, per the NSW Health guidelines, these said freedoms will only be made available to individuals who have been double vaccinated or who have an exception.
Keeping the above in mind, if all targets have been met we hope to get back racing at the end of October with the first event being held by MRA at Sydney Motorsport Park on October 23rd. Categories for the Motor Race Australia event include APRA Pulsars, MX5 Cup, Series X3 Excels and NSW PSC – Production Car Series. Entries looking to open October 4th.
Until then.. stay safe and brush those cobwebs off your cars!
