The organisers of the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival and Wolfstones Hillclimb are like everyone else,mindful of Covid-19/Coronavirus and its progress and effects. The Festival organisers continue to keep a watching brief on the situation regarding the spread ofthe disease and any resultant advice and moves from Government, Local Authorities or MotorsportUK (the governing body for motorsport in the country). As matters stand, the organisers do not plan to cancel the Festival and will continue to worktowards it, until advised not to run the event and/or being prevented from doing so by regulationsfrom the relevant sanctioning authorities. “Obviously, given that this is a public event, our concern, first and foremost, is for the public,”explains Michael McErlain, Joint MD of the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival. “We are currently lookingat something that is more than three months hence and we are gauging what other sporting eventsand bodies are doing for the coming months, and acting accordingly. “I have actually noted increased interest in the event since the recent Government measures weredrawn up. In fact, we have had two major names approach us about becoming YorkshireMotorsport Festival partners in the last few days, because they think that we will be through thepandemic by the end of June and people will want to go out and take part in events again.Obviously, at this stage no one can be sure this will be the case, but it is encouraging to seecompanies looking beyond Covid-19 – because we WILL emerge from it sooner or later. “All the infrastructure is in place and we feel confident of being able to deliver a successful Festivaland, of course, one with the necessary public health measures to ensure the maximum possiblesafety for all visitors and participants alike.
“We are completely mindful of our responsibilities as event organisers and, to that extent, wecontinuously monitor both the national and the local situation and will take action accordingly. Weremain cautiously optimistic that we will still be able to stage the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival andWolfstones Speed Hillclimb on June 26-28 th , as planned. Obviously, if this situation changes we willinform everyone to that effect.”
