Saturday 4th December meeting cancelled. The Covid Protection framework ‘traffic light system’ comes into effect at midnight tonight (Thursday 2nd December) and the Government has classified our region as ‘orange’. Bay Venues Ltd has opted into the framework and their venues will operate under the framework restrictions. Initially, this meant that all visitors to Baypark Speedway would be required to provide evidence of being fully vaccinated to gain entry. The Government announced extension to the vaccine mandates allow for drivers and crews etc to be treated as performers and they could gain entry having had one jab, but could not leave the pit area. This created logistical issues with facilities and security. While the vaccination requirements won’t change, Bay Venues Ltd has suggested a solution to allow Baypark Speedway to operate in a manner as normally as possible.
Consequently we have decided to move our opening night for the 2021/22 season to Saturday 11th December to allow us time to implement the Security plan/My Vaccine Pass process and minimise disruption and to provide some clarity for our stakeholders.
We will update and add further details in the coming days.
