Funds needed

Classic Racer - - READERS WRITE -

Dear CR Dis­ap­point­ing to read your ar­ti­cle about the go­ings on at Oliver’s Mount. Af­ter watch­ing racing there for many years, go­ing back to the Bob Mcin­tyre, Ge­off Duke, Gary Hock­ing, Mike Hail­wood days, through to John Cooper, Mick Grant, Jarno Saari­nen, Ago etc and right up to Dean Har­ri­son, it’s some­thing that hope­fully can be sorted out and racing gets go­ing again. The ma­jor prob­lem area, from what I can gather, is that Scar­bor­ough Coun­cil who own the Mount be­cause it’s pub­lic roads, have said that they can’t work with the Auto66 Club, and as such have said that they won’t is­sue them with a li­cence to run any more events there, and are look­ing for a new party to re­place them. To bring things right up to date, Martin Smith the Coun­cil’s Cabi­net Mem­ber for Leisure has said that the coun­cil are in ne­go­ti­a­tion with var­i­ous par­ties with the aim of bring­ing racing back next year. “It’s tak­ing time, but meet­ings are tak­ing place, and we want to be open next year.” As you com­ment, Malc, it’s go­ing to need some­one with the nec­es­sary funds to get things go­ing again.
