Covid-19 Update

On behalf of ACU

In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, the Auto-Cycle Union has today extended its suspension of all organising permits for motorcycle events until at least 31st May but will be constantly reviewed.

This move provides clear guidance to event organisers, clubs, venues, competitors, officials of the role that the Auto-Cycle Union must play in supporting the broader UK public health agenda.

Auto-Cycle Union Chairman, Roy Humphrey explained, “The government have required that we effectively lock-down for a period of three weeks, however given that the most vulnerable in our society are required to isolate for three months, we feel it only sensible to propose a longer suspension for all motorcycle sport. This is a time of national unity and we need to come together with the broader public community to do all we can to support this battle and ultimately save lives. This evening, Health Secretary, Matt Hancock said the Government is launching a new scheme to recruit 250,000 volunteers to support the NHS through the coronavirus pandemic. A quarter of a million volunteers, people in good health to help the NHS, for shopping, for the delivery of medicines and to support those who are shielding to protect their own health. We may not be involved in any sporting activities, but, we could help support the NHS through this pandemic!"

Auto-Cycle Union will continue to monitor the prevailing advice from the UK Government in respect of the COVID-19 international pandemic and will update the motorcycle community accordingly.

Centre Announcements

  • April Gazette
    With the current ban on sport in place there is obviously no need for entry forms and event regulations to be published. This, coupled with the logistics of getting the gazette printed and distributed, has resulted in the decision to not publish an April issue.
    Despite the ban continuing to at least the end of May, and possibly beyond, we are hoping to produce an issue in May. Obviously this will rely heavily on editorial content and we would be grateful for anything members can supply for possible inclusion. We are sure that Sidge and Charlie are not the only people in the region with anecdotes of times past, so if you have memories of people or events that you think may be of interest to others please let us have them - if you have photos as well, that would be fantastic.
    The lack of sporting events means we all have more free time on our hands at the moment, and what better way to spend it than reading anecdotes about our favourite pastime? It's also a great opportunity to put together an anecdotal history of the Eastern Centre (yes, I AM calling it that, rather than ACU Eastern) with the 100th anniversary of its inception fast approaching.
