Sunday 16th May 2021, Hassockrigg Trial

It’s been a long time coming, and we’ve all been waiting for today, but we are now able to confirm the first event of the year!!!

Sunday 16th May 2021 – Hassockrigg, Shotts, North Lanarkshire, ML7 5TG

All events will follow the most up to date guidance from the Scottish Government & Motorsport UK.

Motorsport UK guidance can be found at Motorsport Restart, and more specifically at Motorsport Restart Club Sport Appendix .

Understandably, we’re not quite yet back to normal, so the changes that we implemented in October, will remain the same.

If you wish to participate in an event you will have to register and pay online, with an electronic signing on declaration submitted before the event.

Registration will open as soon as we have the permits in place, and close 48hrs before the event, to allow us to make a decision whether the event runs based on a minimum number attending.

Officials, whether setting up or marshaling will also need to register with the electronic signing on declaration before the event.

You must have a valid club membership which can be obtained online via Join SORC

If you wish to compete, you must also have a valid RS Clubman Licence which can be obtained free via RS Clubman Licence

Both of these will be checked against the membership database upon receiving your online entry and declaration form.

Number of people (including competitors and officials combined) will be limited to 30 person maximum (as per current guidelines).

Events are effectively being run behind “closed doors”, meaning no spectators (unless they are from the same household as the driver).

Only competitors, event organisers and signed on marshals will be allowed on each site.

There will be hand sanitiser available for use at the event.

Social distancing must be adhered to at all times, including during the drivers briefing, scrutineering, walking the courses, and at lunchtime.

Unfortunately, at this time only double drivers or passengers from within the same household are allowed.

This means, even if you usually bring a friend or another family member along, that don’t live with you, it can’t happen.

Due to the specifics of this site, and permit stipulations, we can only allow fully licenced drivers!

Access will only be available from 0930hrs with the view to starting promptly at 1000hrs.

We are really pleased that we are in a position that events can restart, but are acutely aware that many other forms of Motorsport are not in such a fortunate position.

There will be a maximum of 30 persons (competitors and officials combined) allowed on the site.
