2021 HOGHTON TOWER SPRINTS
Marshals North West Sprints 2021
With yet another uncertain year ahead of us the committee of Marshals North West in their bid to deliver competitive motorsport have after long deliberation decided that the 2021 season will take the following course.
Our aim is to hold 2 events in the coming year;
The first will be classified as a “Twist Sprint” and will be held at Three Sisters Rd, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan WN4 8DD on Sunday 21st February 2021.
The second will we will revert to our spiritual home for a 1/8 mile straight line sprint at Hoghton Tower, Preston PR5 0SH on Sunday the 25th July 2021.
It is difficult to foresee what 2021 has in store for us, however this plan seems to be the most practicable to ensure we are able to compete next year. Changing the early sprint to a Twisty Sprint at Three Sisters a permanent track with the appropriate safe guards are in place which has been successful in running motorcycle events in the latter part of this year. We will therefore benefit from the experience the track management and PDMCC have gained regarding risk assessments and permits to meet the current Covid regulations.
This will then allow us Marshals North West a further seven months to plan and raise the appropriate permits and risk assessments for the temporary track at Hoghton Tower. We all hope for a better times next year and would like to think that by July things may be a lot more like normal, if this is the case we would envisage that meeting the requirement to race at a temporary circuit will be more straight forward than at this particular time.
