Star of Mal­lory can­celled af­ter low en­try

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Star of Mal­lory For­mula Ford 1600 con­test has been can­celled for this year be­cause of con­cerns over a lack of en­tries.

The event was re­vived last sea­son by Mal­lory own­ers Real Mo­tor­sport and FF1600 or­gan­iser James Beck­ett, with the 750 Mo­tor Club due to help ad­min­is­ter the meet­ing on October 16 this year and pro­vide mon­e­tary prizes. But or­gan­is­ers have now taken the de­ci­sion to can­cel with time run­ning out for en­tries.

“It’s a fort­night be­fore the event and the en­tries were com­ing but we have to make the de­ci­sion be­fore it’s too late with mar­shals and lo­gis­tics in place,” said Beck­ett. “Un­for­tu­nately the meet­ing won’t take place this year but it will be an­nounced in much bet­ter time in 2017 and the Star of Mal­lory will run again.”

Beck­ett added that the event might be moved to ear­lier in the year in 2017 to avoid the con­gested FF1600 end-of­sea­son sched­ule.
