COVID 19 UPDATE

MRA UPDATE ON COVID 19

18/10/2020

 

The NI Executive released details on the 16th October 2020 of the four week ‘Circuit Breaker’ and as a result of the guidance within this we have taken the decision to suspend all outdoor sporting events and activities.   

This decision has been made following discussions with SportNI, the Department for Communities, Department for Health, the Northern Ireland Executive and our Insurers Sports Insure

We would ask that everyone has their part to play in stopping the spread of the virus by limiting contact with others, regular hand washing, wearing of face coverings and good social distancing.

If you display any coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, self-isolate straight away and book a test

Please staff safe

MRA UPDATE ON COVID 19 OUTBREAK

10th AUGUST 2020

  

Following the August meeting of the Motorcycle Racing Association (Ireland) Ltd., official Governing Body of Off-Road Motorcycle Sport in Ulster, the first full meeting of the Association since March, the delegates agreed the following actions:

 

Ulster Championships: there will be no Ulster Championships, Adult, Youth, Quadcross or Sidecarcross,  promoted this year as there are simply not enough weekends left to run a meaningful Championship for any class.

 

Clubs with existing dates will be able to run whatever event they wish on their allocated dates.

 

2021 Licences

 

Anyone holding a 2020 Competition licence will be able to exchange their 2020 licence for a 2021 licence at a small admin fee, (to be decided), licence holders will still have to join their Club and sign a 2021 form, this to be returned to the Licence Registrar as usual.

 

The delegates felt that this was only fair to the competitors who have been deprived of on track action through no fault of their own.

 

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding in these extraordinary times, and please, stay safe.
