Bocconoc Stages Cancelled

STATEMENT FROM SOUTH HAMS MOTOR CLUB 

 

Unfortunately, the committee of the 2017 running of the Stage Rally, 12 Car Rally and
the Autotest events under the banner of ‘Motorsport Carnival at Boconnoc’ on the dates
of August 13th, 11th and 12th respectively have reluctantly decided to cancel the ‘Carnival’
on the grounds of safety. Due to circumstances beyond our control, with the condition
the fields and venue have been left in from a previous event, run by another organisation
and the subsequent weather, plus the forecast of yet more rain to come, we have sadly
been left with no choice but to make this hard decision.
We ask that competitors now bear with us as we endeavour to make contact with them
as soon as possible and the situation regarding fees will be resolved at that point. The
decision is that competitors will get a full refund. Officials will also be contacted.
Further to this, we also ask that trade stands and exhibitors bear with us as we make
contact will all as soon as is possible and the situation regarding fees will be resolved at
that point. The decision is that all will get a full refund.
Spectators who have prepaid for their tickets will also be contacted as soon as is
possible and we ask them to be patient as we go through the list. All will get a full refund.
As a committee we have had extensive discussions with the farmers of the land and the
stewards of the meeting to come to this decision. It was not a decision we wanted to
have to make but unfortunately due to conditions not playing into our hands, with heavy
hearts we have to put the safety of everyone to be involved first.
We hope that you are able to understand the reasons for our decision and that as
competitors, marshals, officials, trade stands, exhibitors and spectators will come back
and support us again in August 2018
