COVID-19 RESPONSE

At Evolve Driving, we are taking the COVID-19 risk seriously and are taking steps to ensure our client & staff safety.

Below is our COVID-19

Health Management Plan 

COVID-19 event management plans

Please make yourself aware of the following important information in conjunction with our Booking Terms & Conditions.

At Evolve Driving we allow adults the freedom to make their own well-informed choices when it comes to participating in our activities. It is an incumbent responsibility for every participant to do their own due diligence and acknowledge and accept the inherent risks associated with these activities. Previously the risk referred to was focused on driving at unrestricted speeds on a racetrack but now it also encompasses the risk of COVID transmission.

Most of our instructor team have already voiced their support and intention to return to the cockpit to instruct drivers on our events based on the health management protocols that we have put into place. They understand the value of providing professional coaching to drivers to improve their on-track experience which is a mainstay of Evolve Driving’s philosophy and they want to continue this.

As with all our events, Evolve Driving has a range of structures and formats in place to minimize risks of driving incidents and now reducing the risk of disease transmission as well. The final choice for what is safe and suitable is solely that of the driver, instructor, and other attendees. Evolve Driving, the circuit operators, other sub-contractors, and even strict government health guidelines cannot guarantee your health and safety in all situations.

If you do not feel comfortable, it is up to you to decide not to participate. 

 

To assist with mitigating COVID-19 transmission and to provide a suitable ‘self-distancing’ environment for you we will be implementing the following actions.
