Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we will be substituting certain events, such as group F1 viewings, with online alternatives. The BUKC is still running with protective measures in place, as it is an organised sporting event governed by Motorsport UK and is therefore exempt from the recent restrictions. We will be unable to run our normal fresher's karting social in September but will arrange one as soon as restrictions allow. Hopefully, next BTCC season will allow spectators so we will be able to attend some races, but as an elite sport, this is not currently possible.
