Welcome to Grimley Oval Raceway’s Official Website.
Grimley Raceway Statement – Coronavirus Pandemic
The UK Government has issued further guidance to event organisers with a recommendation that people should not attend pubs, theatres and large gatherings and to protect the NHS, frontline services are unable to support such events due to the resources required by the emergency services.
Having reviewed this information Grimley Raceway have taken notice of the request from the Government for businesses to act responsibly, and, as such have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend future race meetings until such time as guidance from the Government changes.
Whilst we recognise the news will be disappointing for race fans and drivers alike, our highest priority must be to ensure the safety of all who attend our events, and protect the resilience of the UK’s public services – especially the emergency services and the NHS – as strongly advised to by the Government. To ignore this advice would be deeply irresponsible given the current circumstances.
Whilst Grimley Raceway employ their own paramedic and first aid team, including private ambulances, we all know that motorsport can be dangerous, and incidents can and do happen which require the attendance of the emergency services. It is impossible for Grimley Raceway to legislate against the need to call on the assistance of the emergency services for an incident, and as such we are unable to guarantee that we could proceed without making any call on the services which this government guidance seeks to protect.
Please continue to do what you can to help prevent the spread of the virus, and please follow advice provided from the Government and Health Experts for your own well-being and others around you.
We will of course continue to keep our drivers and race fans informed of when we plan on resuming the fixtures for 2020 and will do this as soon as it is safe to do so.
