DMC Race Promotions are delighted to announce that Simpson Race Exhausts have renewed their sponsorship of National Hot Rods World Series NI, which will get underway once the Ulster circuits return to action following the Coronavirus pandemic. The feature race final winner at each round of the series will receive a cash bonus courtesy of Matt Simpson at Simpson Race Exhausts.

Simpson, a recent star in the BTCC and also a former National Hot Rods European Champion, is very enthusiastic about the sponsorship package. “It’s amazing being part of the Northern Ireland World Series once again as our business continues to grow across all formulae. We wish everyone the best of luck this season.”

Darren Black from DMC Race Promotions was also full of praise for the deal. “We can’t thank Matt enough for his kind sponsorship of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. This is the third year of what has been a very successful partnership so far and we are looking forward to a great season ahead, having lost the second half of the 2019/20 series due to the pandemic. The Northern Ireland series is arguably the most competitive of them all, and this year should be no different with more new drivers ready to join the fold. Our partnership with one of motorsport’s most recognisable companies in Simpson Race Exhausts can only help develop the series even more.”

The DMC team are working daily to secure a return to racing, and as always Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for the National Hot Rods will be a major part of our schedule.

The ORCi have today issued their latest update on the Coronavirus situation - 'When Can We Return To A New Normal?'.

Added: 01/07/20

ORCi promoters continue to meet regularly to keep up to date with government advice and how best we may service our competitors and eventually spectators and thank all for their patience and support as we progressively move forward 'step by step'

In line with a measured response to returning the country to a 'new norm' the ORCi continues to review government advice and policy as it unfolds and to that effect via a video conference discussion yesterday the ORCi is positively looking at how it may modify some of it's Covid 19 policies from 4th July to permit competitive racing at venues but again, strictly behind 'closed' doors and with Covid 19 policies.

In the last 10 days the ORCi reviewed it's rules with numbers of vehicles per transporter as it continually assesses the risk element and government advice to ease things for our drivers where we can safely do so.

Venues are also in consultation with their local HSE/EHO to secure their permission to move forward and within the next 10 days, the ORCi will review it's policies in advance of the first proposed 'competitive' event.

Different promotions are re opening their venues for practice / private hire at an increasing rate however it should be understood that this is where it is viable to offer such facilities, sadly not all venues will be able to operate. We are pursuing further government clarifications. However, we are moving forwards quite progressively within one month.

The ORCi and promoters are 'happy' that we are now beginning to move to a new norm setting and possibly, move forward with competitive events. We repeat that certainly as far as July is concerned there is currently no advice with regards attendance of spectators/others however therefore public attendance remains prohibited until further notice.

Once the government opens up discussion on 'mass events' then the ORCi very quickly will be working hard to return our sport to a situation where we may be able to allow attendance subject to what Government advice evolves.

In terms of Pit Areas the ORCi will continue with it's MINIMUM 2m social distance rule between transporters as 'best practice' and has operated well since early June.

All who have run practice events thus far have remarked positively on the co-operation of attendees which has made the sessions much easier to operate and we thank you for that and ongoing we request attendees to continue the 'common sense' in adherence to government advice and Covid 19 policies and risk assessments.

All advice in terms of travel to venues remains as per advice already in place.

The ORCi held a further video conference on Friday 22nd May to update the current situation and review government advice with regards our own sport.

We have been in communication with Government departments and individual EHO/HSE authorities around the UK on best practice to enable some venues to re open. The government’s latest advice for an easing of restrictions came into effect on Wednesday 13th May however offered little clarity and some ambiguity with regards our own sport so such guidance has been sought.

Subject to a further government announcement on the 1st June 2020, providing that there is no adverse advice, ORCi promoters individually will release provisional venues and dates for practice type sessions effective 2nd June 2020 onwards. The decision to operate practice / private hire sessions will be an individual decision based upon viability and/or any local enforcement advice, together with further considerations to include the availability of event officials, the effect on the government’s scheme for furloughed employees, and the overriding concern of ensuring a safe environment.

The ORCi is working with HSE consultants to produce robust Covid 19 Risk Assessments which will require strict adherence from participants staff and limited attendees and conditions to comply with government guidelines to keep all safe and best practice.

These will be published in advance via orci.co.uk before a limited resumption of activities.

At this juncture, the ORCi cannot offer any further guidance as to when race events may resume with or without restrictions, however, there may be further clarification after the next Government announcement on 1st June which will be reviewed at a further scheduled meeting later that week.

Scotland, currently cannot yet advise a date for any resumption as the devolved government is operating slightly different 'lockdown' and easing of restrictions and further advice on that will be provided as and when further information is made available by the Scottish government. The contents of this statement remain provisional and subject to what the government releases on 1st June. Should guidance change on 1st June, ORCi will release a further statement following that.

Stay Alert and Keep Safe,

Steve Rees
Chairman
For / and on behalf ORCi
