DARLEY Moor racers will not duke it out for the Stars at Darley title this year after chiefs made the call to axe the 2020 trophy battle.

But racing will still run at the double-header season finale as the club looks to tackle three rounds at the Derbyshire circuit before the season’s end.

The news comes after Darley Moor bosses toasted the welcome return of spectators albeit, in line with many other venues, for race meetings only.

With just three planned race meetings left in 2020, they have also made the call not to award championship points with the minimum five rounds required to crown their champions not possible this season.

While spectators will be admitted to race days, they will not be allowed in the paddock and the usual Covid-19 attendance regs are in place, including no admittance if displaying signs of the virus and no entry into the paddock. Viewing will only be possible from Park Corner to the Hairpin as the Pope Straight remains closed.

Darley Moor is set to kick off its curtailed club racing campaign on Sunday, September 13 for Round One before a return for the double-header finale at Rounds Two and Three, scheduled over the weekend October 11-12 but excluding the Stars at Darley races.
