Practice and Private Hire Information
Added by Kevin on Thursday 4th June
Hardie Race Promotions are pleased to announce that we will shortly be opening up the venue for private hire events and open practice events.
The practice and private hire sessions will be running whilst adhering to the government guidelines regarding Covid-19 and following the ORCi method statement and risk assessment.
This news item will outline everything you need to know so please read this article in full and carefully.Cost
The price for practice will be £40.00 per driver and must be paid in advance. PLEASE NOTE:- Car sharing is NOT permitted due to COVID-19 rules at these practice sessions.
Private hire of the oval is available Mon-Fri between 10am and 5pm, at a cost of £75 per hour, with a minimum booking cost of £150.Booking Information
All bookings MUST be made and paid for in advance and subject to availability. Bookings will be accepted on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis. Before confirming your booking, please ensure you read and agree to the file which is accessible via the link below. Once your payment has been processed this acts as your agreement and there will be no refunds. To make a booking please use our form on our website, found within the online shop.Attendance & PPE
At these practice sessions it will be strictly Driver + 1 mechanic. An additional 1 helper can be added for practice sessions and private hires for an additional £10. There must be no more than 2 helpers for each car.
NO OTHER PERSONS WILL BE PERMITTED ENTRANCE INTO THE STADIUM. NO SPECTATORS ARE PERMITTED.
All drivers and mechanics will be required to supply their own racing PPE as normal plus a face mask which must be worn at all times once within the stadium except in the case of the driver when you have your racing PPE on to practice.Clarification
For clarification on practice sessions, part of the guidance on running such events is that we must fully adhere to social distancing, at this juncture this includes travelling and arriving at track.
It also means that we are unable to accept any additional people into the track such as family members unless paid for in advance as a helper (max one per driver).
The baby steps are to get us to a stage where we can prove to the regulatory bodies (regional & national) that we are doing all that we can to prevent the control of the virus, we must get approval from these bodies before we can even run the events and we do expect visits to ensure compliance.
Whilst we all want to return to racing, this must be done in a manner that protects everyone concerned and we will update the procedure as soon as we can.Pit Parking
On arrival at the raceway you will be required to queue on the road outside the pit gate entrance until instructed to enter the stadium via the tarmac pit area entrance. Formulas who use race receivers need to set your race receiver to channel 952. Please do this so the pit marshal can speak to you and guide you via your race receiver where to park. Non-race receiver formulas please follow the verbal and hand signals of the pit marshal. All transporters will be required to park whilst leaving a ‘cars’ gap between each other. REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST BE WEARING YOUR FACE MASK BEFORE ENTERING THE STADIUM.Social Distancing
Maintain a minimum of 2 meters social distancing.Toilets
Toilets will be provided but social distancing must be maintained whilst queuing to use the facilities.Exiting the Stadium
At the end of your session, you are required to leave the stadium via the pits via the hard standing exit.
