Coronavirus racetrack shutdown

Trackdays will cease at MSV tracks until at least the start of May

MotorSport Vision (MSV) has confirmed that as of 6pm on Monday, March 23, all circuit activity at its six venues will cease until the end of April. The decision comes following an earlier call to halt all motor racing activity until the same date, which has now been pushed back to the end of May, and will see Brands Hatch, Donington Park, Oulton Park, Snetterton, Cadwell Park and Bedford Autodrome terminate any further action.

Alongside all MSV tracks, Mallory Park, Anglesey, Pembrey, Thruxton and Knockhill have also confirmed that track action will be postponed, with Mallory, Pembrey and Thruxton holding off until May 1 at the earliest and Anglesey set to release further information soon. Knockhill closed its doors on Sunday, March 22 for an initial period of two weeks.

Alongside traditional trackdays, it was also announced earlier today that the Donington Park-based Ron Haslam Race School will suspend all activity until further notice.
