It is with deep sadness that we report the recent loss of NEMCRC Club Member Brian Horner. Brian decided to tick something off his ‘bucket list’ by racing a motorcycle and we are honoured that he chose to do this with the Club. He was a very well-liked gentlemen and will be missed by his friends and fellow riders.
Our thoughts are with his wife Michelle and all of Brian’s family at this sad time.
It is with deep sadness we report the recent loss of NEMCRC Club Member Don Simpson. Don has been a Club Member, Rider and Official of the Club for a number of years and will be a big miss. We send our deepest condolences to his family.
We would also like to pass our deepest condolences to Club Member Colin Simpson and his family, on the loss of Irene, Colin’s wife.
Our thoughts are with you all at this sad time
“The Scottish Classic Racing Motorcycle Club regret to inform our loyal competitors and supporters, that due to the current unprecedented circumstances we have made the painful decision to cancel the 2020 Bob Mac meeting. We would like to THANK YOU ALL, riders, marshals, officials, sponsors, spectators, medics and everyone involved for supporting our cherished event and making it (in our opinion) one of the highlights of the racing season calendar. We aim to continue the legacy of this event and hopefully see you again at the Bob Mac in June 2021.
Best wishes to you all, stay safe
SCRMC(Ltd) Road Race Committee “
As you are all aware, Croft and the first meeting at East Fortune was cancelled earlier this week due to Government guidelines.
We are all experiencing difficult and trying times dealing with COVID-19, however, NEMCRC would like to assure all riders that their entry forms for Croft and East Fortune (May), have been destroyed along with any cheques and card details.
Discussions regarding meetings possibly being re-scheduled are taking place. As and when we have any further updates we will let you know.
We are all very disappointed that the meetings are unable to go ahead, especially after all of the hard work which has been put in over the closed season.
We thank you for your on-going support and hope to see you all at some point this year.
Unfortunately the Croft meeting has been cancelled with regards to the following statement from the ACU
Coronavirus (Covid-19) – ACU Statement Update 17/03/20
Tuesday March 17, 2020 at 10:46am
Statement on Covid-19
On behalf of ACU
It is with regret that the ACU are suspending all competition and social activity until 30th April 2020, but this will be constantly reviewed. This is in response to the emerging guidance issued by HM UK Government in response to the outbreak of COVID-19.
All permits for events during this time will be cancelled and reimbursed in full to the organising club/ promoter. As the National Governing Body would ask all ACU Members to act responsibly and follow the Government’s guidance during this difficult time. We have a responsibility and duty of care to our staff who will be working from home, so please be patient with any queries you may have.
As of writing (17th March 2020) HM Government have advised:
– Persons to work from home where possible
– People over the age of 70 to minimise social contact
– Emergency services will not support mass gatherings
– Stop non-essential travel
– Avoid pubs, clubs, restaurants and cinemas
This statement is supported in its entirety by AMCA
Please see below statement made by the SACU earlier today cancelling all events up to 31st May:
SACU Statement to Members – Coronavirus-19 16th March 2020
The Board of Directors have made the very hard decision to cancel all SACU permitted events till 31 May 2020. We will assess the situation after this date.
This has not been an easy decision for the board, but considering the situation with the spread of the virus we believe this is the best way to proceed in the interest of our members and their families to ensure their wellbeing.
We will make every effort to ensure scope for any Scottish Championship events to find other dates in the calendar.
I hope you all can understand this decision, and that it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of all involved in Motorcycle Sport.
Yours in sport.
Sandy Mack MBE
