These are obviously very hard times for everyone involved with motorsport in whatever form and I for one cannot wait until things begin to open up for motorsport again. Whether it will happen this year and to what extent is a total unknown.
Can I also pass on my appreciation for all the work that had been done by event organisers in preparation for events which have been cancelled/postponed. I know how frustrating this must be but hopefully that work can be salvaged and used to run the events at a later date.
What will happen to this years championships is still an unknown but obviously if they will contain much fewer events if they do run. Still to be discussed and decided.
Wishing you all the best for the future. The main thing is that you and all your members stay safe and well.
All the best
(SD34 MSG President)
