Aberdare Park still on, say chiefs

In Aberdare Park, News, Roads

BOSSES at the Aberaman Motorcycle Club have moved to quash rumours as they confirm intentions to run the Aberdare Park Road Races as planned.

Wales’ only road race is still currently on for its original date of July 18-19, but chiefs have admitted backup dates are on the cards if government restrictions prevent a July meeting.

A statement from Aberdare Park Road Races boss Derek Smith today reads:

“At present we are facing very uncertain times, and as such our sporting calendar is at a standstill.

”Our dates have been prior to this lockdown accepted by acu and advertised. We are currently still aiming to run on the 18/19th of July, however we will be guided by ACU and local government guidelines.

“If for whatever reason we are unable to run as we would hope, we will simply divert to a more convenient acceptable date.

“Our planning team have been working behind the scenes tirelessly and we have the infrastructure in place to stage the event as per the norm.

“As said we are and will be guided by our governing bodies, we would however encourage you as riders wether race or parade riders to lodge your regs with us so we can get the grid sheets in order.

“This would really be appreciated and would help myself, Hannah and Ian Mcleod with our stress levels. We look forward to seeing everyone at the event.”
