Rock­ing­ham ‘send-off’ event re­duced to one day

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
