Morning all,
During our Committee Meeting last night it was decided to suspend entry for all our planned NS Events due to a number of ongoing concerns.
We are still trying to ascertain if we can safely run these events during this pandemic.
We will keep you updated as we have further information from our Racing Committee.
We trust you understand why we have taken this hard decision.
