Motorsport UK, the governing body for four-wheeled motorsport in the UK, has today announced the provision of a further supply of complementary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to support its clubs and volunteers, underlining the importance of adhering to its Face Covering guidance.

This additional supply follows the successful distribution of equipment by Motorsport UK to over 460 events announced on 10th June, for use throughout the initial phase of the resumption of motorsport in July and August. The response from the clubs, officials and competitors to the face covering requirements has been outstanding and has played a large part in the sport’s continued ability to run events safely.
