Manx me­mo­rial event can­celled

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The Chris Kelly Me­mo­rial Rally due to run this Satur­day has been can­celled due to a poor en­try.

The Isle of Man event – which kicks off ral­ly­ing on the is­land – had 30 en­tries.

A state­ment from the CKMR or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee read: “It is with re­gret that the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee of the Mann Con­struc­tion Chris Kelly Me­mo­rial Rally have to an­nounce it’s can­cel­la­tion this year.

“With only a week to go and 30 en­tries the eco­nom­ics of run­ning the event would mean an un­ac­cept­able level of loss to the club. We made this de­ci­sion now so we could ad­vise com­peti­tors from the UK and not leave it un­til the last mo­ment, which would not be good for all par­ties in­volved.

“All en­tries and trav­el­ling costs will be re­funded in full.”
