Is this still going ahead? I saw on Facebook they were gonna cancel if they didn't get x amount of entries by last weekend I think.

A fair few people signed up over the weekend. There are over 100 entries now, so as far as I know, it's going ahead.

Can't make this - two race weekends in a row would be bit too much..

Race was cancelled today at the last minute, very frustrating...Did 2 practice runs this morning, the track was greasy but great fun. First they cancelled the seeding run, and a short while later cancelled the whole event. Very harsh on people who travelled a long way and slept in vans and tents overnight in poor conditions.

Jesus that's very poor from organisers. You would think they would make a decision a couple of days in advance. Were conditions very bad justifying the cancellation?

I didn't hear the official reason for cancellation, communication was very poor. Was getting ready to head up for my race run and noticed a lot of people leaving. One guy stopped and told us it was cancelled.
It was raining heavily today during the morning practice and it was muddy but still fun to ride.

Issue there,is probably " duty of care " IMHO, athough I have no idea of what actually was the situation.

According to 021 racing who were running the event it was cancelled due to ‘very poor weather conditions’
