As I’m sure everyone is fully aware by now, Kent has been placed in 'Tier 3' ... the most restrictive of all current Tiers.

On the positive.... ‘Organised outdoor sport is legal under the latest regulations’ and therefore once again we can reopen the Circuit and get our ever supportive customers and friends #BacktoBayford and active in the great outdoors! BUT the fact that we are in 'Tier 3' means that the local hospitals and ambulance services are under enormous pressure dealing with the Covid issues. The Company and Kart Club have therefore taken the decision to further limit the karting options we offer whilst in Tier 3 and I trust you will understand and respect our decision on this. We at Bayford Meadows; whilst obviously extremely keen to reopen to the maximum capacity permitted, must do what we can in the fight to control this virus.

As our owner drivers will already be aware, Ian Ward has taken the decision to cancel December’s MotorSport Uk Race meeting which is considered a ‘high-risk' activity.

Following suit, we will also be operating a considerably reduced Hire Kart timetable until we see Kent’s Tier situation improve. We will also not be able to accept any customers travelling from Tier 2 or 1 during this time I’m afraid.

Thank you for the continued support and enthusiasm of all our customers and a huge amount of hard work and resilience behind the scenes from our Bayford team.

We will keep coming back from each and every challenge thrown our way and always follow the guidelines to ensure we are operating as a COVID secure site. We are therefore now very happy to confirm our REOPENING from FRIDAY 4TH DECEMBER for Owner Driver practice days and Hire Kart Sessions (Junior & Adult) plus a limited selection of Hire Kart events. Please note however, ALL SESSIONS MUST NOW BE PRE-BOOKED via our website.

We look forward to seeing those that are able to join us for a brilliant time at Bayford Meadows.

Kind Regards and please keep safe
