FAB Racing announces four-day July season opener

In FAB Racing, Minibikes, News

BOSSES at FAB Racing have revealed plans to finally get their 2020 season started in a big way as they announce a four-day season opener next month.

The MiniGP and minibike series will kick off its much anticipated championship at Lydd Kart Circuit from July 16-19 at what would have been the turning point, round five of eight, of this year’s originally-scheduled campaign.

And with a late shuffle, chiefs are hoping to run at least another five rounds to bolster the 2020 series as they begin to bring in new protocols to comply with government-mandated coronavirus-fighting tactics.

While it is not currently possible for racers to camp overnight at circuits, FAB bosses are anticipating this restriction to be lifted on or around July 4, which could align with the rest of the club racing world’s predicted return as the ACU permit suspension is set to end.

Initially, adult competitors will be allowed to attend with only one other person while under-18 riders will be allowed to attend with two adults, one of which must be a parent or guardian. To comply with current restrictions, those arriving in the same vehicle must reside at the same residence.

Events will not be open to spectators and anyone attending who has tested positive for or is experiencing symptoms of the virus should not attend, nor should those at high risk. If a person starts to show symptoms of the virus at the event they must immediately pack away and leave the venue and inform the organisers by text or telephone.

PPE will be the responsibility of competitors and attendees will be expected to have the necessary masks, gloves, and hand sanitiser available for personal use.

While full-size sidecar competition has been called into question thanks to social distancing restrictions, FAB Racing bosses have deemed sharing a sidecar a very low level of risk of catching or transmitting the virus following consultation with medical advisors.
