Pro-Am Charity Karting Postponed
Stanstead Abbotts nr Ware Herts UK - January 18th 2002: The 1st Stanstead Abbotts & St Margarets Scout Group regret to announce that they are postponing their inaugural Pro-Am Charity Karting Challenge.
The decision to postpone the event was taken by the group in conjunction with event organisers RacingLines International after a major sponsor pulled out of the event late last week citing commercial pressures.
“ We had to agonise long an hard over the decision.” said RacingLines International Commercial Director Sean Driscoll.“ Our team have spent the last week trying to secure alternate funding but with little success”.
The event would have seen stars from all forms of motorsport race with the public for charity.
“ We are issuing full refunds to all those teams that had signed up for the event” Driscoll continued.“ We hope run a rescheduled the event on October 27th 2002”
“ It is a real shame that we have to postpone” said Group Scout Leader Vicki Burt“ That effectively means that we can’t repair our hut or replace our minibus this year”.
“ I would like to thank all those who put in literally hundreds of hours into this event and especially over the last week trying to replace the sponsor” She continued.
Nobody at either RacingLines International or the Scout group would be drawn on the identity of the errant sponsor when pressed Driscoll said“ It would be completely unprofessional for us to identify the company involved”.
Bookings are now being taken for the rescheduled event.
