Challenge of Clubs Trial Postponed

Autosport Performance Accessories Challenge of Clubs Trial Notification:

The directing team are formally announcing that the 2009 Challenge of Clubs Trial is Postponed.

Further discussions with the NCCA committee and then the VRAP will determine whether the event will be rescheduled as a standalone event or Cancelled.

The fire in the Muskvale area which started yesterday (23/02/2009) and grew overnight has not yet impacted the rally route. However taking into account the potential damage to the Rally Community if we did compete, whether an incident occurred or not, is in our view too great.

Compounding the obvious safety issues, the event had organised for several CFA appliances to be located in the rally route for the duration. These appliances may not be available due to the current workload.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Aiden Peart, Trevor Woods, Steve Porter and my wife Rachel who have put in a combined effort that would amount to hundreds of hours. Unfortunately our efforts have been unrewarded with the recent events, and several re-routes and now the fires.

Kind regards,

John Patterson
