16 May 2020UPDATE - COVID-19 - CAMP CLOSURE
UPDATE - CAMP CLOSURE
The Scarborough Committee hope that you are all keeping well. We thought we should update you all following the recent announcement by the Government detailing their Strategy for the coming months, and relaxing the Stay Home message.
Also The Auto Cycle Union issued an update following the Governments' announcement.
We will be considering opening for practice at the beginning of July, but must stress that this is NOT a definate or final decision. We will only make this decision after reviewing how the new strategy is working, and as you know anything could change in these uncertain times. We will be reviewing the Government and ACU announcements regarding new rules whatever they may be in the next few weeks.
When the time is right for opening up Camp again we will be putting in place very strict guidelines and these must be adhered to if you want to keep your memberships!
There will be NO NEW MEMBERSHIPS at the present time.
We thank you once again for your patience, we are all as keen as you to get back to practice and enjoying Low North Park again!
Stay Safe and Stay Alert!

29 Apr 2020UPDATE - COVID-19 CORONA VIRUS - CAMP CLOSED INDEFINATELY
CAMP CLOSED INDEFINATELY - UPDATE 29.4.2020
Firstly let us begin by saying the Committee hope all our members and their families and friends are staying fit and well during this difficult time.
We thought we would just update you all regarding the Camp Closure currently in place. The Camp will REMAIN CLOSED INDEFINATELY, until such time, whilst adhering to the Government Guidelines, it is safe to re-open for Practice. We all love this place so it is hard for all of us, on the plus side it is getting a well deserved break!
There will of course be NO new memberships at this time, and NO REFUNDS OR AMENDMENTS given. The Membership situation will be reviewed in the future when we know how long this situation goes on for. It is very difficult to make any decisions at the moment as you can appreciate.
We hope you can all understand our decision and we thank you all for your co-operation. We will of course be monitoring the situation and having Committee discussions, and we will keep you informed of any changes should they arise.
TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE!

19 Mar 2020ACU update CORONA VIRUS
Message from the ACU Chairman – 19th March
Dear Members, Officials and Staff
For over a hundred years the ACU, it’s committee’s and staff have served it’s members whether they be riders, passengers, support crew and families, it’s supported it’s clubs and members, event officials and their families, we’ve worked with event promotors, medical support teams, sponsors, journalists, manufacturers and the motorcycle sporting industry, insurers and legal companies, rights of way representatives and politicians and we’ve always managed to keep motorcycle sport running in the most challenging circumstances.
At the time of writing and as you know the virus is spreading across the country and as seen across the World with devastating consequences, we share the families afflicted sorrow and as thousands of people suffer it’s not a time to be organising sporting events and as seen by our World representative for motor cycle sport the Federation Of International Motorcyclists FIM they have postponed all World and Continental Championship events.
As we wait for better times you may have questions for the ACU team at Rugby who are there to help and will answer your questions if possible but to make it a bit easier for them you will find most information on the ACU web site www.acu.org.uk then when we return to racing or trials the ACU staff and the many thousands of officials that organise and run the events will be ready to get your season started.
I need to say that myself and the ACU Board appeal to members to not ride their competition motorcycles in any circumstances during this period because to ride a competition motorcycle you know there are risks to yourself and others. Please think that if your seriously injured riding a competition motorcycle you will use valuable medical resources which may result in you being ultimately responsible for somebody else’s failure to receive the appropriate life saving treatment.
Through the coming weeks please think of others and help us all get through these unprecedented times.
Chairman ACU Ltd
