Basic Principles

Covid 19 has not gone away, as this is typed cases are rising, however the change is that we must now learn to live with this disease.

 

Guidance for Competitors

Your Club will NOT be operating how it used to pre-pandemic.

Some of the process we have adopted during the last 18 months will continue to be used as it’s simply Good Practice.

 

You MUST Provide: -

  • Your Own Hi-Viz Waistcoat for Marshalling.
  • A pair of Gloves for Marshalling – If the Club require them. (not latex, proper work gloves).
  • Some disposable Face Masks – for use as required.
  • A Bottle of Hand Sanitiser – for use as required.

 Highly recommended to have available: -

  • A pair of Gloves for Marshalling
  • Some disposable latex gloves.
  • Surface Cleaner.
  • Hand Wipes.

Do Not Share PPE.

 

Face Masks

Are NOT a legal requirement.

       But

  • They may well be a requirement of the Venue or the Club and it is entirely possible there will be areas within the venue that will still require their use.
  • If you are Asked to wear a mask by the Venue or the Club – Wear It or Don’t Attend.
  • Venues or Clubs are entirely within the Law to require you to wear a mask to attend.
  • If you have a Medical Exemption do carry the appropriate documentation.
  • If you want to wear a Mask – Do So – ignore what others do or say.

 

Personal Responsibility & Respect.

  • If you are feeling unwell, in any way, Do Not Attend.
  • Do Not put yourself in a position where you feel uncomfortable.
  • Respect the choices of others, if somebody chooses to wear a mask Respect their choice, they would probably also appreciate more personal space.

 

At Your Club

      Do No Expect things to revert to 'as they used to be pre pandemic, they will not.

 

Lots of you will have been expecting all the guidance to simply stop and for thing to revert to ‘how they used to be’ unfortunately the world has now changed, this disease is now part of our daily life, there is no going back. However, what we have learnt from this is that by taking some simple steps we can improve our events and the impact they can (and do) have on our health. For virtually all of the previous 4 pages you could replace ‘Covid 19’ with ‘The Flu’ and it would still apply. What we have learnt is that we need to take our Health seriously and what we each do at our events effects other people’s, we will need to be much more organised and considerate of that in the future.

You will have now seen several different sets of information issued by the Association to you as individuals and to our Clubs, this document is intended to illustrate how and where they come from.

There is plenty for us to consider over the next few weeks and months, including how we implement changes required and how we get to the future for model motorsport in the UK.  Some clubs are facing difficult times right now, so here’s how we could help.
