New committee needed to avoid indefinite ‘hibernation’, says MMRCI

In Minibikes, News

THE Mini Motorcycle Racing Club of Ireland is on the hunt for new blood to take the helm next year as bosses reveal a possible hibernation on the horizon.

With all racing suspended amid the coronavirus outbreak and following a challenging 2019, the MMRCI has officially revealed that there will be no racing for the club in 2020.

“This will be the first in 19 years that the MMRCI will not hold a championship and it was a very difficult decision but unfortunately our downturn in 2019 had a massive impact towards this,” bosses admitted.

With new social distancing guidelines in place from the government, the club has also said they will not be holding any practice events for the foreseeable future.

And it looks like it could be all change in 2021 as organisers revealed they are searching for new committee members for next season – without whom there could be a very long lull in action for the MMRCI.

“The club requires a new team of fresh and motivated people to join the committee and take over the running of the club – this is vital to allow the MMRCI to remain as a club.

“Unless a team of five or more wish to propose themselves to take the club on in 2021 then it will remain in hibernation for the foreseeable future.”

“We would like to thank all who have enjoyed being part of the many years of competition with the club.”
