Press release from Motorsport UK on the 24/03/2020
In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, Motorsport UK has today extended its suspension of all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption for motorsport events until at least 30th June.
This move provides clear guidance to event organisers, venues, competitors, officials and volunteer marshals of the role that Motorsport UK must play in supporting the broader UK public health agenda.
In recent days the feedback from our members and the community was a need for increased clarity to allow them to plan appropriately and, should the need arise, put in place necessary contingency measures.
Motorsport UK Chairman, David Richards explained, “Motorsport UK has a vital role to play with its community in re-inforcing that, at this time of national emergency, we must all stay at home to play our part in protecting the NHS and ultimately saving lives. Today, the government have required that we effectively lock-down for a period of three weeks, however given that the most vulnerable in our society are required to isolate for three months, it is evident that the most responsible course of action was to propose a longer suspension of our sport. When we reflect back on this time, it will be a brief, but vital, hiatus from our everyday motorsport life and we must put this in perspective. This is a time of national unity and we need to come together with the broader public community to do all we can to support this battle and ultimately save lives.”
Motorsport UK will continue to monitor the prevailing advice from the UK Government in respect of the COVID-19 international pandemic and will update the motorsport community accordingly.
The Two Rivers Tour 2020

Forresters Car Club welcomes you to the fourth running of the Two Rivers Classic Tour.
During this short time, the organisers have worked hard to develop the event into what is seen as a well organised, value for money classic car tour.
The picturesque roads and country lanes of Monmouthshire, neighbouring counties
and the Eastern Valleys are a delight to drive. Consequently the Two Rivers Tour has been well supported by classic car owners and has grown in stature. For this year we are excited that our tour has been awarded a place within the 2020 HRCR Classic Tour Series and look forward to receiving your entry.
We will be offering around 110 miles of driving, with the route laid out in an easy to
follow tulip roadbook. The start venue this year will be at the Rock and Fountain Inn, Penhow and the
finish will once again be at the Huntsman Hotel, Shirenewton, where you will be served
a gorgeous two course Sunday Lunch. Both the start and finish are within easy access
to the M4 and main motorway network.
