Curboro 26 th March Cancelled.Ungent

Post by Nick » Sun Mar 24, 2013 2:00 pm

I have just spoken to Dave Patterson ( Mr Curboro), we have agreed to CANCEL the test day on Tuesday. He has generously agreed to this without a penalty.

the track is well covered in snow with no improvement likely. A number of others have cancelled next week.

My priority is to advise all. I will attempt to E mail all. I would appreciate some confirmation that everyone has got this.

I will sort out refunds etc. at a later date

This is a sticky - the first new thread below it in the Competition section here. Copied here for clarity:

That's a real shame but I fully understand Nick.

No chance of a new date?

Bu&&er...... Do you think we'll get another opportunity in the next few weeks Nick, or does it look like it's not going to happen at all ?
