The RX-8OC stance is outlined here: Covid 19 Club statement
Corona Virus Info - Posted 13 March 2020 We have had no indication from any circuits that track days will be postponed. As it stands all our driving events remain unaffected! Important please read the following track day corona guidence.
21/03/20 – All events are continuing to operate with the measures below in place
As you can imagine the hot topic at the moment is Covid-19 so here is what you need to know regarding that and Javelin Trackdays. Unless you receive an email stating otherwise then all events are proceeding as planned with some extra precautions in place to minimise contact risks.
We understand that many people are concerned for events but if there is any change then the very first thing that we will do is email all the participants on that event to inform them of a change, secondly we will update the website to reflect this change. Please ensure that you have checked both your email and the website for news, calling the office will not yield any further information that is not already listed in those places and we will notify you as soon as there is any official news at all.
If you are unsure of what to look for then you can find the symptoms of Covid-19 via the following link https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19
If you are showing any of these symptoms then we ask that you do not attend the event and if you have been advised to self isolate then let us know via email prior to the event and we will add a credit to your account for a future event. If we get to the stage where events are suspended due to Covid-19 then everyone booked on with be issued with a full credit as all circuit calendars are going to end up changing everywhere in response ready for when things resume again.
If you are not able to attend an event then we ask that you complete the Cancellation Request Form on our website and make any note that you feel are needed in the comments section, please note that this is the only method that we will accept attendance notifications as it enables us to easily keep track of them.
Print your driver/passenger forms at home and bring them along to the event already filled in, this will help minimise contact risks on the day. You can find the link to all forms and instructions in the instructions email that is sent out as well as a tab on every single event page on the website.
If you do have to fill a form in on the day then we advise that you bring your own pen, although disposable pens are available at signing on as well.
Use the hand sanitiser that is provided before touching pens or signing on to decrease the risks of contact.
Avoid grouping together too closely during the signing on period.
Get there early and not just within 15 minutes of the briefing time to stop people bunching together.
We need to see your driving licence at signing on but please remove it from your wallet and show it to us, do not hand it over unless requested.
We don’t want a lot of people gathering in one place so depending on the circuit you may find the briefing taking place outside or in different locations to where they usually are.
Passengers do not need to attend the safety briefing unless they are going to change to a driver later on so there is no need to attend.
The biggest bit, if you have attended a Javelin Trackdays event briefing at that circuit before and within 18 months then you can avoid the briefing altogether by simply reading some pertinent information displayed at signing on and signing your form as instructed. This means that briefing attendees can be cut by as much as 70%, significantly reducing any risks to those who do have to attend. You still have to attend signing on at the normal times though.
Circuits are putting their own measures in place to minimise contact i.e. serving lunch over a longer period to spread people out but remember that a lot of the circuits also give you the option to have your food to go so you can eat it elsewhere if you so wish.
Instruction will not be taking place on our events for the present time due to the risk of close contact.
Helmet Hire is no longer available due to the risk of contact spread.
Other than that we simply ask that you make use of the facilities and wash your hands on a regular basis throughout the day. At the moment attending a trackday should pose no more risk than any other activity in terms of Covid-19 but we will be working closely with the circuits to monitor the situation as it develops and will let you know of any changes that may occur.
Mazda On Track
We, along with other Track Day providers are monitoring the current situation and government and medical advice. At this moment in time our events are going ahead on the basis that these are low density, out door events and that they can be managed in line with the current personal recommended separation limits. We will have special measures in place that will be different to what you would be used to typically. We will send these out via email to all customers attending the day.
While we very much want to still have track day fun our customer safety is paramount and we would ask, in line with medical advice, that any customer that has any contact with people from high risk areas or show any symptoms of the virus refrain from attending the event. If you do fall into this potential group then we will provide you a full credit for one of our future events.
In the event that we have further information or that movement control measures are put in place then we will inform all customers as soon as we can.
MSV TRACKDAYS – HOW WE ARE RESPONDING TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
MSVT NEWS March 2020
Updated: 20th March 12:00
Following the latest advice from government on social distancing, we are putting streamlined procedures in place to minimise the need for contact between people on our track days. These include:
Registration/indemnity forms with driver/rider and emergency contact information will be completed in advance. These are attached to your final joining instructions email just prior to your track day.
Post office style 'screens' are being installed at the registration points at some circuits, booths or alternative locations at others.
Participants will be required to put on their own wristbands at registration.
There will be no need for physical licence checks (you will be able to self-declare on the registration/indemnity form instead)
We request that only participants and essential helpers attend.
We’ll be operating phased briefings with smaller groups (some will be in the open air) with no briefing wristbands required. The decision on open air or phased briefings for your track day will be indicated in the final joining instructions and confirmed at registration.
No briefing will be required for experienced rider/drivers, i.e. if you have participated in a track day at that circuit within 18 months, subject to significant changes in weather or track-conditions
The helmet hire and in-car instruction options have been removed until the end of April.
We request that only customers that are booked in and essential helpers attend the track day.
We will provide more detailed information in the coming days. These measures will be in place until further notice.
IMPORTANT: If you have any symptoms of Coronavirus as per the NHS website (see here) you must not attend a trackday. Furthermore if you have been advised to self-isolate then please contact us in advance of the event and we will add a credit to your account for a future track day.
Should the situation evolve and it is not possible for us to operate a track day due to the Coronavirus, we will automatically issue a credit for the full amount of your booking, valid for 12 months.
