Motorsport Australia is in close contact with all levels of government as they try to ensure a prompt and safe motorsport return.
CEO Eugene Arocca said that they are closely communicating with these government authorities on a number of topics, including how state and national events could possibly gain exemptions from restrictions.
“We are doing everything we can to stay up to date with the latest restrictions and also provide state, territory and federal governments with as much information about the plans for our sport, including discussing our Return To Race strategy,” Arocca said.
“Each state and territory is doing things differently and we are making sure that we are across those differences to determine what motorsport events we can sanction and how our event organisers and clubs can meet their required obligations for running any events in the future.
“Of course, the health and safety of our competitors, officials and event organisers is our first priority – and we want to make sure that when the sport starts to slowly return, no one puts themselves at any significant risk.”
Larger rally events, like Australian Rally Championship rounds, are likely to require exemptions, even as restrictions ease.
“Like many major sporting codes, there are going to need to be exemptions for the larger motorsport events to proceed. We believe these events, such as our state and national level events, can go ahead safely, without spectators and do so with limited risk based on the guidelines we have in place,” Arocca added.
