Ladies and Gentlemen. As many of you will have seen, Motorsport UK has advised that national motorsport will recommence from 4th July.
That’s truly great news and means that our two day meeting at Donington on the 11th/12th July can go ahead. Which we are sure will come as very welcome news to many of you!
We have a valid Motorsport UK permit for the two days and our Championships are not National [such as BTCC] and are therefore able to run, we have received written confirmation of the programme from Motorsport UK.
Meanwhile MSV have confirmed the circuit will be available and that all systems are go!
Obviously, since we are one of the first meetings to restart there will be extra vigilance that we comply with whatever the regulations are then. We really need your full cooperation on this aspect.
We very much hope the bar of overnight stays away from home will have been lifted.
Unfortunately it won’t be a normal two day meeting because some restrictions will remain and our primary concern is your safety and well-being which will call for some extra measures and an alteration to the usual procedures. One being that it will be a closed meeting without spectators, so no bringing your fan club!
We aim to keep the numbers in the paddock to a minimum at all times and there will be a specific manager appointed to ensure that social distancing and all the mandatory requirements are met.
Please be understanding, we are determined that the meeting will be safe and that you will have an opportunity to enjoy racing around this iconic circuit.
Motorsport UK today has announced plans as to how it proposes restarting motorsport across its eleven sporting disciplines.
Motorsport is currently suspended throughout the UK until 30th June 2020. Although it is understood there will continue to be levels of government restrictions and social distancing in place for a considerable period, Motorsport UK has been considering how to restart the sport, within the parameters set out by government and healthcare authorities. Significant planning has taken place involving consultation with stakeholders from across the sport and Motorsport UK’s specialist committees, to conceive how the sport can be restarted at the appropriate time, while adhering to the government’s prevailing guidelines.
We wait for final details and notification from the MGCC, however entries could go live on the 1st June for racing in July…….
join us for living streaming event on face book click here at 8.15 on the 7th of May
That’s because TONIGHT at 8.15pm we are LIVE with both MGCC MG Cup & the MGCC BCV8 Championship looking ahead to the season (hopefully) and reflecting on years gone by with some awesome track footage!!
If you love your Motorsport then seriously, you won’t want to miss this and it’s all LIVE!! 🎥
And now for something a little different…. My Supercar Productions media partners 2020…..
As a championship it is important to help club racers get exposure and showcase our championship and working with Ian Waterhouse and his team will offer something different from the usual content….
During Race Day
We will be there prior to qualifying (where possible) to conduct live broadcasts throughout the day capturing interviews with teams, drivers, and sponsors in a fun F1 style Ted’s Notebook format. Oh, and we’ll run commentary on the race and capture it from up high along the main straight.
Here’s how it looks:
We will speak to all the teams happy to participate in the live-streaming as well as series organisers and conduct immediate after race driver interviews as soon as they have entered parc ferme and wrap the action up with call to actions.
After the event
Just because the cameras are off it doesn’t mean we go home and put our feet up! We pull the footage and form a live-stream highlight reel and send the teams their own interview footage to use as they wish. Working with the MG Cup we then produce a viewer figure report and send to the teams and you to use as an asset when seeking sponsorship deals.
What does this cost all included in our £80 registration fee in the MG Cup…..
Fingers crossed that Donington Park will be the start of the 2020 season for the MG Cup on the 11th and 12th of July (Subject to confirmation and Covid restrictions allowing).
We hope to see all of our drivers at this event as with 6 races now to decide the championship they all count.
Registrations are still open and the championship will be given credit notes for missed rounds to reduce registration in 2021.
Stay say and time to get in the garage and sort your cars out…….
We would all be getting excited for rounds 3 and 4 of MG Cup at Brands Hatch, but with racing on pause currently we are sharing a picture from 2019 race. We shared the grid with the Metro Cup which is always good sport especially when the turbos lift and fire flames at you. Club racing at its best petrol heads racing cars from the 80’s – 00’s never under estimate a A series turbo hat’s off to Mr Trevett and Mr Wilson who kept some of our Tomcat 220 Turbos in check…..
The pause button has been pressed for the start of the season. During these trying times our thoughts are with NHS medical staff dealing the fall out of COVID-19 (coronavirus) To all our drivers and friends stay safe and we will be on track again soon.
