Important update on national lockdown restrictions (updated 5 Feb)

Tuesday, January 05 2021

On Monday 4 January, the Prime Minister announced that significant national restrictions would be introduced from Tuesday 5 January, ahead of a review on 15 February, to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Since the announcement, the government has published detailed guidance on these various measures and we can now provide the following information on how our various business areas will be impacted during this period:


Car and Bike trackdays will not take place from Tuesday 5 January until at least Sunday 7 March (inclusive). Please note this suspension originally ran to 15 February, however it has been extended following confirmation a roadmap on relaxing restrictions will be published on 22 February, with measures to be eased from 8 March.

If you were booked on to an MSV Trackday (MSVT) event that will not take place, please note a full credit for the booking will be automatically applied to your MSVT account. Given the extraordinary circumstances, credits will have an extended 12-month validity from your original cancelled trackday date(s). The credits are transferable to another name. The credits can be redeemed against any listed MSVT date and can be viewed by logging into your MSVT account.

If you were booked on to another operator's event (e.g. Javelin Trackdays) please visit the organiser's website for more information.

Car Testing

Exclusive and semi-exclusive testing involving professional race teams will go ahead as planned. 'General' testing will be suspended from Tuesday 5 January until at least sunday 7 March (inclusive).

Drive! events at Brands Hatch, Donington Park, Oulton Park, Snetterton and Cadwell Park

These events will sadly no longer be able to take place as planned on their original dates in January. We are urgently looking to arrange replacement dates for later in the year, and all customers will be contacted on this directly as soon as possible.

Driving Experiences

All MSV driving experiences (Race Master, Young Drive! etc.) will be postponed until at least Sunday 7 March. Everyone who is booked to attend an MSV driving experience up to and including this date will be able to book a replacement activity in due course. Any vouchers that are due to expire will automatically remain valid until three months after driving experiences resume operating.

If you were booked on to another operator's event (e.g. Everyman Racing) please visit the organiser's website for more information.


PalmerSport driving events at Bedford Autodrome will restart on 10 April.
