Remaining 2019 Jurby rounds axed with lack of entries

In ARA, News

ANDREAS Racing Association chiefs have been forced to cancel the rest of their planned races this season after coming up severely short for their recent double-header.

Club bosses warned riders and teams last week that they only had until today to find almost 50 extra entries for next weekend’s two-day race event in hopes of breaking even.

And after only 19 riders entered the September 21-22 round, organisers have now been forced to go one step further and also cancel the season finale four-hour endurance event which was set to run on Sunday, 6 October.

The news comes after a difficult season for the ARA in which the club also had to shift around dates following a July cancellation with a lack of officials.

A statement from club chiefs reads:

“Unfortunately due to the lack of support by riders not entering the meeting we have no other option but to cancel the last meeting of the year. We tried everything… but 19 riders over eight classes doesn’t work.

“On that note, the scheduled endurance race has also been cancelled due to lack of support for the last meeting. The club has run race meetings over the previous years at a loss and can not sustain it any further.”

ARA bosses have asked for questions to be directed to the club’s rider liaison officers.
