Next Events : Mallory Park Test Day 20 March / Mallory Race Weekend 11/12 April


BHR Statement

As we are sure you are aware, the next steps in the Government’s approach to the Coronavirus outbreak have recently been announced. The Prime Minister, alongside the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Officer, indicated that the United Kingdom is moving into a ‘Delay’ phase, the aim of which is to push the peak of the outbreak into the summer so as to give as much time as possible for further research into the virus and to ensure that the NHS is as prepared as it can be.

The guidance that is being issued by the Government in response to the outbreak is being closely monitored by all concerned, but in light of this guidance BHR has taken the decision to cancel the Friday 20th March 2020 Test Day and the CTC/BRA course.

Alongside the guidance from the Government, the ACU have today issued a statement that cancels all permits until the 30th April 2020.

Therefore the meeting at Mallory Park on the 11th and 12th April 2020 is now also cancelled. Meetings later in the year currently under review and we will keep you informed as the situation develops further. Please keep an eye on our web page or forum for updates. Can I also ask that you are patient with any requests for refunds or information on future meetings that you have, your concerns are important but if you need to contact a member of the committee (especially Carole) can you contact via email rather than phone as we are all busy with our day to day workloads.

I’m sure this is not surprising news even though it is very disappointing, but we all need to keep safe and follow the guidance issued in the main stream press.

Please can I ask that you all take care, act responsibly and follow the guidance from the Government during this time.
