25th March 2020 - Coronavirus statement from Greenpower Education Trust
Greenpower Education Trust has announced an update on their current event calendar. With regret, all events due to take place before 10th of July 2020 have been cancelled as a result of necessary precautions surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Greenpower’s priority at all times is the health, welfare and well-being of its participants, volunteers and staff. As an organisation, we have a responsibility to follow the directives of the UK Government and Motorsport UK in a collective effort to combat the outbreak of COVID-19. Motorsport UK has rightly suspended all of its organising permits and Certificates of Exemption until at least the 30th June 2020. This, coupled with our medical providers withdrawing their event cover to assist the incredible efforts of the NHS, means that racing events until the end of this academic year cannot currently be held.
Both actions, along with nationwide school closures, means our usual racing season and Greenpower events in 2020 will no longer take the same format as in previous years. We remain hopeful that with the recent increase in government actions against the pandemic, we will be able to create some exciting stand-alone events later in the year as soon as the restrictions and school environment allows.
If the current situation improves and existing restrictions are lifted, Greenpower will endeavour to stage some really special events, which will enable our community to come together again and get their amazing cars back on a race track. Any updates on this will follow government advice and we will publish further updates on this page when appropriate. We will be contacting all those registered for the affected races in due course to process full refunds.
Hull Street Race 2020
In addition to the above Greenpower in collaboration with Hull City Council have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Hull Street Race due to take place on 3 May 2020. We will contact all entrants and sponsors in due course with a view to rescheduling this event to a later date.
