Aintree chiefs issue update after first round cancellations

In Aintree, News

AINTREE Motorcycle Racing Club bosses have released details on why their 2019 season has been cut short as they fight to salvage the year.

Earlier this month, chiefs revealed that they had been forced to axe the first two rounds of the championship, with the remaining three suspended until further notice.

Now, they’ve released more details on happenings behind the scene.

A statement from the club reads:

The remaining July, August & September are still suspended. All this is a result of legal action being taken by a rider that was involved in an accident last September.

Although a disclaimer was signed on his entry form, he is still pursuing a claim, which we understand is a substantial amount.

The club applied and paid for a track certificate and permits back in December 2018, which have never been received.

It was not until early March that it was deemed that we had to have a further Track Inspection. This took place on the 26th March 2019. The Directors and Committee had a meeting where it was decided to take the action on our proposed meetings for this year.

The Directors and Committee are still working hard to try and resolve these problems.
