Unfortunately we have had to cancel tonights TT on the Chelveston/A6 Bypass on the grounds of safety. Wind is far to high and the gusts are currently as seriously strong as forecast by the met! This cancellation notice has also been posted on Facebook.
Sorry everyone. Just spoken with Simon. In light of the state of the road tonight's TT is cancelled on the grounds of safety as it has JUST (today) been re-graveled!!
As it's the 'middle" section there really isn't much scope to shorten it and increase the laps as there is likely to be loose gravel all around the roundabout and we don't need to take any unecessary risks just to acheive a slower time!
This has also been post on the club Facebook group page, Cara, ginny and Mark have been informed. Simon will contact Zak
Competitors, please note that due to personal commitments there will be ABSOLUTELY NO late entries accepted. Closing date is midnight Tuesday 28th. Please pass on to anyone you think might enter.
Many thanks Simon.
