Carrickfergus & District Motorcycle Club can now confirm that the 2017 Carrick Youth Grasstrack Championship has unfortunately been concluded after two / three rounds following Tuesdays cancellation. This was the second time the third round was due to be run after fog hit the venue in the build up to our first attempt at round three on June 27th.
Since then the club committee has decided that it will not be possible to re-run the cancelled third round at a later date for a number of reasons, including,
1. Our schedule commitments with the landowner and surrounding residents - We had agreed to return the land back to farmland at the end of last week and already asked for an extension on this.
2. Holidays booked of both riders and officials over the upcoming twelfth week.
3. Time constraints and logistics of our preparation and setup of the Glenarm EnduroCross scheduled for less than two weeks time - We use the same track furniture ( posts / signage etc. ) at Glenarm.
It is unfortunate that we have had to conclude this series early but we hope that you all will understand.
CHAMPIONSHIP PRIZE GIVING
It is our intention to hold a Prize Night locally at a venue in Carrickfergus to present the trophies to the kids. We need to discuss this in more detail though at club level and will announce a date and venue after our next full club meeting on Monday 31st July.
For those that pre-entered the event online, we will be returning those entry fees via PayPal before / on Sunday 16th July, hopefully sooner. Please check your PayPal account to ensure you receive this and if there are any issues contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those that sent a cheque, these have now been destroyed and will not be cashed.
