A Reminder – Hednesford Cancelled - Added 03/12/2023



A reminder to everyone that unfortunately due to the heavy snowfall the event today (3rd December) has been cancelled.

Despite what people may believe on social media the decision has not been taken lightly.’

A lot of time, effort and planning has gone into this event both by us as the event organisers but by the drivers coming from all over the country and across the water from Northern Ireland and Eire.

I want to make the point of thanking all those drivers, staff and everyone behind the scenes who have helped in getting this meeting onto such a positive advertisement, it genuinely is gutting to have to cancel the event this morning.

The forecast suggested as many would have looked at that the forecast was to be cold and wet but not to produce the amount of snow at the raceway it has. The forecast is due for rain this afternoon however, the logistics of operating the event mean that we would not be able to run the event safely with the amount of snow on the ground.

We arrived at the raceway and were unable to drive up ourselves so we cannot take the risk with the transporters not only trying to get into the raceway but also once inside going up and down the hills.

You must also remember we have do not just have the racing to consider. There is also the spectator element to the event too. The common used for car parking is unsuitable and the risk of injury to people with the possibility of cars sliding not acceptable.

We are trying to bring the Best in Britain back to the glory days of when it ran at Wimbledon Stadium and the booking list showed that drivers were more than willing to support it. To add to the attractiveness of the event we have worked hard with the local community, schools and Hednesford Town Football Club to promote the event to a new local audience so believe me when I say that not been able to run the event today is upsetting knowing how much work and help behind the scenes has gone on and I want to thank everyone of those people for supporting the raceway.

Sadly, today is not meant to be but before everyone goes on criticising the decision please show a bit of understanding that we wanted this event to be a success just as much as you.

Can we also take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe return journey home.

Adam Leslie
Racing Manager
