    Welsh road race cancelled for 2018
    Dear Customer,

    The directors of the Welsh Road Race regretfully announce the postponement of the 2018 Welsh Road Race. This is due to recent changes in legislation on the Road Traffic Act in Wales. A date for the 2019 event has already been requested and will be announced shortly.

    On the 9th of January this year, there was a hearing with regard to the repeal of the Road Traffic Act. The repeal was to allow the use of closed Public Roads for Motorsport events. This repeal came into effect yesterday, on the 2nd February.

    The Welsh Road Race had gained permissions previously, but the current change in legislation, has put the timescale of the event into jeopardy, as there will not be enough time to obtain the correct permissions now to permit the event.

    “We are working closely with the ACU, Crown Properties and Powys County Council to organise the Welsh Road Race, and under the new changes in legislation, the new deadlines that have been imposed, will make it very difficult to carry out a safe and successful event’, said Derek Smith, Managing Director of the Welsh Road Race, “ the Board of Directors are absolutely devastated, for all the supporters and all concerned with the event. We have begun steps to contact all our supporters and sponsors who are involved in the event.”

    Paul King, Chairman of the ACU Road Race Committee said, “Following concerns raised with the Auto Cycle Union at the end of the year about the proposed Welsh Road Race in August 2018, Members of the ACU Road Race Committee recently met with the event organisers, to understand what was being proposed and what was required for the event to progress.

    In order for the ACU Road Race Committee to sanction the event, a list of requirements required from the Organisers was agreed. It would appear that the timetable to achieve the event for 2018 cannot be achieved.

    The ACU Road Race Committee will endeavour to assist the organisers in progressing the event for 2019.”

    As a ticket holder you now have 2 options:

    1. We can refund you for the full amount and you will have rebook for the event next year.
    2. You can keep your ticket for the next event and we will honour your entry price. We will additionally provide you with:
      1. A Welsh Road Race Programme.
      2. Discounts for Friend and Family members for a limited period, when tickets are re-released.
    3. If you are already a Supporter’s club member, we will also offer you additional benefits, which will be discussed in the future.
    Whether you wish to keep your ticket or not, you will also receive a complimentary entry ticket to Aberdare Park National Motorcycle Road Races, which will take place on 21st and 22nd July of this year.

    What a shame. Quite a few from our club had booked to go, and others planning to join them.

    What a farce this event is/was, it was a non starter due to the bloody Welsh trying to get an event (at UK taxpayers expense) that would rival the IOM TT!!
    They even found legislation to ban their own event!!!
