All motor racing events at Killarney International Raceway, including the Power Series, Drags, Short Circuit, Karting, Robot Racing and Street2Strip have been suspended until further notice.
IN ALL OTHER ASPECTS IT WILL BE BUSINESS AS USUAL, SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:

The Clubhouse will be open for business during this time.
ACTIONS BY THE CLUB:
We are being proactive in our efforts to manage the situation with regard to containing the spread of the Covid-19 virus, with sanitiser stations at entrances to Admin Block and Clubhouse, sensitising all staff to good hygiene practices and the need to take all necessary precautions, such as washing their hands before entering the workplace, regular and frequent washing thereafter, limiting personal contact as appropriate and working from home if they develop a cough or flu-like symptoms.
Posters promoting behaviour to reduce the risk of infection will be placed at entrances to Admin Block and Clubhouse.
We call on all members/users of the Killarney facilities to be responsible and to comply with government directives.
THE RISK OF INFECTION IS REDUCED BY:
Not shaking hands or hugging, rather use the elbow tap.
Washing hands frequently with soap and water, each wash being at least 20 seconds.
Covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or elbow.
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO KILLARNEY IF:
You have travelled to a high-risk country overseas in the past three weeks.
You have had any contact with any person suspected of having Covid-19.
You have any flu-like symptoms.
We wish all our members and the extended family of Killarney motorsport fans strength and patience for the difficult times ahead, and look forward to welcoming you all back to Killarney in due course.
