SOUTHERN 32 - 2021

Yesterday's government announcement confirmed we will still be in step 3 covid restrictions up to and including 18 July with an easing of the covid rules very likely from 19 July.   

I know several clubs can meet step 3 covid restrictions with typical club-night numbers, and larger numbers are OK in the very much larger space at BSCRA's National Centre.    However it's difficult to see how a normal size clubroom could accommodate the numbers we hope will enter the S32 within the step 3 covid restrictions.   The proposed plan is for 4 rounds in 2021:-

No Southern 32 round on 11 July.

The 2021 season starts at Luton on 15 Aug

Coulsdon hosts round 2 on 3 Oct

Timau  hosts round 3 on 31 Oct

The final 2021 round is the ProAm / Southern 32 double header on  20th/21st November at the National Centre in Corby

We have a full season in 2022

Of course that might all change depending on the progress of the pandemic and the government rules surrounding it.

Clubs are being consulted about the following ideas for the 2021 Southern 32

Restarting racing

BSCRA has produced a draft calendar for the rest of 2021 which includes four Southern 32 club meeting dates (11 Jul, 15 Aug, 3 Oct & 31 Oct  ).   Also there's the 20th/21st November which Paul Harwood and I have penciled in for a ProAm / Southern 32 double header at the National Centre in Corby ( a similar double header planned for Nov 2020 was one of the cancelled meetings).      It seems fair to offer the 6 clubs whose 2020 rounds were cancelled first refusal for 2021 rounds, however we only have 4 dates but maybe they won't all want rounds anyway (?)

In order to get something running we should start some planning even though we know  there are some difficulties such as not all clubs have set an opening date yet: the clubs who have opened  may have to restrict numbers to remain covid safe:  uncertainty about what the  government might decide we can do after 21 June or some  later date.


A good plan would be to finalize 2020 Championship using the 3 rounds we did hold in 2020 and start again with a 2021 championship which will hopefully have 5 rounds.
