First and most importantly we want to make sure that we have plans in place for the event so that our club members and anyone else on site is safe. With the advent of the coronavirus, we have had rethink the way we conduct our events, for the safety of our drivers, crew, staff and track personnel. CVAR will do everything we can to keep our people safe, but inevitably many of the new safety protocols will be the responsibility of CVAR members.
