Rockingham ‘send-off’ event reduced to one day
Rockingham’s farewell meeting – the last race event to be held at the venue before it closes to motorsport – has been reduced to a single day after receiving a lower than anticipated entry.
The event will now run on November 24 only, with races for single-seaters, Ginettas, Caterhams, Sports/saloons and a one-hour enduro. Organisers are asking for entries sooner rather than later for the one-off event.
“The entries weren’t quite what we’d hoped, or certainly not what the expressions of interest led us to believe, and rather than stringing it out, we wanted to put on one big day for everybody,” said Michael Galjaardt – head of sales and marketing at the Corby circuit.
“It should still be a good party for all and we’re hoping [once] some of the other races are out of the way, with the Walter Hayes at the weekend, and we have Race of Remembrance next weekend, hopefully we’ll pick up some more entries.”
Demostration cars and race entries are still being accepted, via the circuit website.
