HOGHTON TOWER SPRINT 2023 GOES AHEAD but Public Spectator Attendance is Cancelled.
Marshals North West Hoghton Tower Sprint will be taking place this weekend, however due to circumstances beyond our control public spectator attendance is cancelled. Please see the public announcement from Hoghton Tower Preservation Trust below.
It is with much regret that we have to announce the cancellation of all public spectator attendance to the Motorcycle Sprint event on Sunday 2nd April 2023.
After careful consideration, the difficult decision has been taken to close all spectator viewing areas on either side of the track because they have become waterlogged and impassable after the recent inclement weather. The areas pose a significant health and safety concern and we were ultimately left with no choice but to cancel public entry to the event
We will be contacting all individuals who have pre-booked in due course.
The organisers at Marshals North West will continue to go ahead with the racing competition itself. As such all competitors that have pre-registered can still attend but must arrive prior to the drive closing down at 8.30am on Sunday morning.
Please be aware there will be no entry for anyone who arrives after this time or who is not on the register, with no exceptions.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any disappointment and inconvenience caused. The event is a historic event for the Charity, and key to our continuing fundraising efforts, and the decision has not been taken lightly.
We would like to assure you of our best intentions at all times and ask that you bear with us whilst we continue to manage this situation the best way we can.
Thank you for your support
