COVID-19 Info and how it affects our business

As with most businesses in the leisure industry, we have been closed since 16th March 2020, the week before the official lockdown started.

 

We are aware that it may be another 2-3 months before we can re-open, but we have drawn up plans for a safe return to work for both customers and our team members.

 

Some of the measures we will be introducing are as follows:

 

  • Safe distancing, there will be 2m spacing clearly marked throughout the venue
  • The track will operate on a one-way system, again, clearly marked.
  • Only 4 people will be permitted to race at a time to ensure safe distancing between them.
  • A strict limit to the total number of people present in the venue, irrespective of whether they are racing or not
  • Issue of protective gloves for use whilst racing and marshalling cars
  • Customers to provide their own masks which will need to be worn at all times
  • Plenty of hand-gel to encourage regular handwashing when not wearing gloves

 

These are just a summary of the things we will be implementing. Should you like a copy of the full statement, please e-mail me for a copy.

 

We will be offering 1-hour only racing sessions initially for a limit of 12 people, but we will be offering this at a much-reduced price of £95. Normally, a 1-hour session for 10-people costs £125.

 

You will need to book this now, in advance, with no specified date stipulated, and once we are able to go ahead, we will book a date with you to suit your requirements. This offer will not be available once we re-open.

 

This offer is conditional on payment by bank transfer only, sorry.

 

We are offering this because, as a business, we cannot continue to operate with no income and want to be able to continue to provide fun parties and events into the future as we a have done for over 17-years now. Our 17th anniversary was on the 6th May and wasn't celebrated with our normal special  endurance race.

 

By us offering such a deal, you will be helping us to keep ticking over until we get the green light to open.

 

Should you wish to take advantage of this offer, please e-mail us, brian@pitstoppromotions.co.uk
