SRCCC Covid-19 Update – September 20

Outdoor and indoor meetings at SRCCC continue to run on the normal days, times, classes and format as described on our Club Info page. Members and guests are welcome to come and race and we’re always pleased to see new faces.

To ensure we enjoy our sport safely and protect the wider community all participants are required to adhere to the applicable BRCA guidance for outdoor or indoor racing and follow the club procedures set out below.

Booking and Payment

  • Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Advance booking is mandatory.
    • A coordinator for each club race meeting will post on the club Facebook group 2-4 days before to open bookings – https://www.facebook.com/groups/srccc
    • Comment on that post with your name, class and whether members/non-member to request a place.
    • Non-members before first visit please PM the coordinator your name, address, phone no, DOB and BRCA number for BRCA check and to meet our coronavirus track & trace obligations. This is the same information we collect for club members and will be held in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
    • If you don’t have a Facebook account, email requests to one of the following email addresses 4 days of closer to the meeting your would like to attend:
    • The coordinator will monitor requests as they come in. As a designated motorsport race meetings are not currently limited to a specific number of people, however 30 drivers is the maximum we can safely accommodate for pitting and rostrum capacity. In the unlikely event a meeting is oversubscribed the coordinator will allocate as follows:
      • First allocation of places goes to drivers who have not yet had a run since lockdown. Among this group we give precedence to
        1. Existing members(pre-lockdown) who used to drive on that track+day (e.g. Thursday evening)
        2. Other existing members (pre-lockdown)
        3. New members (post-lockdown)
        4. Non-members
      • After that, if there are places remaining we allocate in rotation based on when each driver last got a run.
    • Where places have been limited the coordinator will post again on Facebook to confirm allocations.
    • A nominated race director per circuit per session will attend to oversee activities.
    • Decisions of the booking coordinator are final.
  • Race fees are:
    Member (adult/junior): £7/£4
    Non-Member (adult/junior): £10/£5
    Extra car: £3
  • Please pay online at or immediately after attending the meeting. This is to avoid the need for credits if your plans change at the last minute and you’re unable to attend.
  • Payment is via PayPal . Click here or search payee srcccracing@googlemail.com from the PayPal app. Please select the friend/family option and include your name and race meeting date in the comment.
