Rock­ing­ham culls Cars and Stripes

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Pickup Truck rounds at Rock­ing­ham next month will still take place, de­spite the venue’s Cars and Stripes event be­ing post­poned.

The event, sched­uled for July 2/3, has been can­celled af­ter dif­fi­cul­ties in se­cur­ing sup­port from back­ers.

The Cars and Stripes event ran for the first time last sea­son. It cel­e­brated all things Amer­i­can mo­tor­sport and fea­tured static dis­plays, NAS­CAR ex­pe­ri­ences and the Pickup Truck Cham­pi­onship stag­ing a new show­piece race called the Rock­ing­ham 100.

Cars and Stripes has now been post­poned un­til 2017. The Bri­tish Au­to­mo­bile Rac­ing Club will still hold the Pickup rac­ing on the Sun­day.

Rock­ing­ham is­sued a state­ment say­ing: “Cars and Stripes re­ceived much pos­i­tive feed­back from all those who at­tended. As a re­sult we en­tered into dis­cus­sions with sev­eral par­ties to pro­vide sup­port and part­ner­ship to grow the event. Due to cir­cum­stance beyond our con­trol with these par­ties, this has not been pos­si­ble and we were left with the dif­fi­cult but nec­es­sary de­ci­sion to post­pone the event.”
