It is with great disappointment that we are writing to you to advise of the cancellation of the 2nd round of the Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships, which was to be held at Winton later this month.
There were several factors contributing to this decision including the new legislation limiting event attendees, the health & wellbeing of competitors and officials, and availability of medical resources. Ultimately these could not be guaranteed leaving us with no option.
Medical advice received is that the situation is expected to get worse before it improves. The Health Department expect the virus to spread and more people to be diagnosed over the next three to four weeks.
A number of options were pursued in order to proceed with the event, including restructuring the event itself, but unfortunately current circumstances mean that we cannot proceed.
We are terribly disappointed as we have received 200 entries and we were looking forward to a great event. Refunds will be issued to competitors who have entered this event.
We are hopeful that future rounds of the championships are able to proceed. The next round is scheduled for May 16-17 at Phillip Island. We will advise the status of the event via our website, social media and email.
We would like to acknowledge the assistance given to us by Motorsport Australia, Winton Motor Raceway and Ambulance Victoria.
