TRACKSIDE camping is set to make a welcome return after Boris Johnson today revealed a new wave of relaxations on lockdown due to kick off next week.
Poised to come into force July 4, in line with the reopening of pubs, bars, restaurants, hotels and more businesses, the new measures mean multi-day club and road racing events are now one big step closer to going ahead with overnight stays at circuits now on the cards.
“From July 4, people will be free to stay overnight in contained accommodation, including hotels, B&Bs, including campsites, as long as shared facilities are kept clean,” Mr Johnson said.
The Prime Minister added that this was only possible thanks to a decrease in social distancing restrictions.
“[The two metre rule] prevents all but a fraction of our hospitality industry from operating.
“Where it is possible to keep two metres apart, people should. But where it is not, we will advise people to keep a social distance of one metre plus, meaning they should remain one metre apart while taking mitigations to reduce the chance of transmission.”
In its new guidance, the government reminded campsites that communal areas such as showers and toilets will be expected to remain clean and safe.
