Me to, gutted its not on. Anyone know why?
Bugger! Four days work preparing for nothing right there.
I was looking forward to that. My condolences to you all.
It’s a bugger alright…..
There were very few entries for the event – so John made the decision to cancel it.
This is a big blow the the ATRC – I have spoken to them and said they clash with the Beacons Rally the week after – if it could move to April / May time it would fill a gap in the ATRC calendar.
We may be doing something with roadbook in that area in Oct / Nov.
Absolutely gutted that this event has been cancelled. I was really looking forward to it, it’s one of the more scenic areas that we ride through. We as riders need to be responsible and enter earlier for these events. If we don’t support them we are in danger of losing them altogether. I just hope John Kerwin and his team can organise an event for next year which isn’t too close to the next event in the calendar. Just in the time I’ve been doing the rallies we’ve already lost around 3 rounds, it is now only a 5 round event, which is further reduced to 4 rounds in 2018. Burt, could we look at Hafren being a round?
Travel distance doesn’t really come into it, when you have riders getting to events via ferries from Ireland and the Isle of Man!! On the subject of the Isle of Man, this is a kick up the arse, please get your entries in early for Circuit of Mann, those that have been before know how long our laps are and must understand how much work goes in to pulling that together by a very small dedicated team.
See you at Beacons
I’ll be up for any north roadbook stuff. Need plenty warning if poss to be sure i can be off as Saturday’s a work day for me and the calender is pretty chocker..
