With the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic in full swing, drastic changes have impacted our lives.
At first, the country came to a standstill. Businesses were forced to close and we could only leave the house for emergencies and essentials. Now, with relaxation of the lockdown, we are able to get back to a level of normality with limited changes in what we do, just how we do them.
Included in this page is a brief cover of our current processes in relation to; Practice, Event Registration, Signing On, Pre-Event Scrutineering, Grid and Result publication and Guidelines on staying safe during our Events.
Practice is almost exclusively run by the circuit, even the practice day prior to our race events. For up to date information on how to attend an owner-driver practice session, please refer to the Clay Pigeon Raceway’s Practice page
Entering an Event
Competitors should enter online at our Alpha online entry page.
Logging in is now performed using your registered email address, not your MSUK License number.
If you are unsure what your registered email address is, please contact us for assistance.
If it is your first time logging in using your Email address and you have registered with us previously, you can use the Forgot your password link to securely create a password.
Once you have access, you can register against your chosen class and enter our events.
Signing on is no longer carried out in person, at the circuit.
Those drivers who have registered will receive an email with a Signing-On link, this may be the afternoon of which you register, this could be the after registrations have closed on the weekend of the event.
Once you have received your email, please follow the link and log in, if required. You will be asked to sign the usual MSUK declarations with the inclusion of details pertaining to Covid-19.
Included on the same page as Signing-On, (once scrutineering has been opened) is the Scrutineering card and self-declaration.
Here, you can do your standard pre-event scrutineering checks such as submitting your engine, chassis and other equipment numbers, as well as confirming that you and your equipment are suitable for the event.
Please note that while we are now taking these details virtually, we reserve the right to perform pre-event scrutineering, if we deem it a requirement and we can perform it whilst adhering to the current government and governing body Covid-19 guidelines.
Grids will no longer be displayed in the Race Control window.
Current grids will be hosted on our website at the following addresses: (this is a test system, subject to change – please let us know how it works out for you)
Occasionally, grids will need to be regenerated after initial publication. In these instances, the pages above will be updated with the changes being publicised on Facebook as well as with an announcement over the circuit tannoy.
As per Grids, Results will no longer be posted in the window of Race Control. Results will only be available on our Alpha Timing results page.
During the Event
During our events, you must adhere to the Circuit Covid-19 guidelines, as well as the guidelines set out by Motorsports UK.
