The Competitions Committee have met and despite the national situation with regard Covid 19 and the current National Lockdown we are pleased to confirm the following UK race dates for the 2021 season:
1st,2nd & 3rd May – Allerton
29th,30th & 31st May – Hacketts
10th & 11th July – Rother Valley
14th & 15th August – Rother Valley 2
28th, 29th & 30th August – Gang Warily ( TBC )
25th & 26th September – Hacketts 2
Competitions felt it important to be able to organise a race season so people could plan, look forward and prepare to get out racing again. And most importantly meet HCGB friends again without the aid of Zoom!
It will not be a surprise to you that at this stage we feel that the early events will be subject to postponement or re arranging. As a club we will follow the Govt guidance at all times and will monitor the Covid crisis and update you at the earliest possible opportunity, as we did in 2020. But we do hope we can put some racing on in 2021.
We also know that the event proposed for 14/15th August at Rother is not on one of the provisional calendar weekends. But we felt we needed to use every available date, in discussion with Rother to take the opportunity to get us out racing.
Comps would also like to thank the branches that have delivered budgets and want to host these events. The Midlands Branch are hosting 4 of the 6 events along with supporting the Allerton team so they need a special mention and they also need the support of the other branches to get these events up and running.
