COVID-19 Update: 2020 Events Update

Following further developments with the Coronavirus and the subsequent changes to the motorsport calendar in the UK, we have made further alterations to our own 2020 events calendar.

On the 4th October, we will now be staging a Japfest-TRAX double header event at Silverstone, bringing together the very best cars from the Japanese car scene as well as the wider modified car community, working with our sister brand Fast Car.

As ever, this is a continually evolving situation and we remain guided by government policy and advice from health officials.
We would like to thank the support of our venue partners, our customers, clubs, traders and sponsors for their patience and understanding at this time.

All existing bookings can be carried forward to be used at either of the new dates in 2020, or carried forward into 2021.
We advise ticket holders to check our social media pages, website and their inbox for further updates in the coming weeks.

We will of course continue to monitor developments in the weeks ahead. The safety of the public and our staff are our number one priority, and we will continue to be guided by the advice from public health bodies and the UK government.

Like other companies in this sector, Kelsey Media remain committed to delivering our events in a safe environment. We are working closely with our venue partners, taking whatever steps necessary to ensure the safety of the public and staff alike. We will therefore advise customers in due course if anything else changes.
You can also keep up to date with developments by visiting for the other live action events.

In the meantime, if you have any further queries, please check our FAQ’s here, please email us at, or call 01959 543730.
