On the suggestions to stage a Test & Tune / Practice Event on the 26th January, our Management Team voted unanimously NOT to hold this event .
We must point out that early’o’clock, this was the preferred date for our first Event, since this would have given us more time to solicit and confirm our sponsors for 2014, but we decided to avoid any conflict with this date, which was unilaterally taken by other parties.
The general assessment to this suggestion is that Autosport should at all cost maintain its integrity and ethical standards by not displaying an attitude of, "you do me so I will do it back to you."
Since last Wednesday we have been attempting to meet with the Police to ascertain certain facts but this is yet to be achieved, in spite of our best efforts.
What we are experiencing now, we have gone through many times before, in 1995, in 1996, in 2000, many times during the tenure of our High Court Consent Order from 1996 to 2006, and in the end, we came out even stronger, and with a clean name.
We shall be pursuing various initiatives and assure all that we will be back staging Events in the not too distant future.
Just to note that TTKA also cancelled their first event carded for 19th Jan. since they could not afford to lose the costs related to staging an event and have it also targeted for no good reason.
And we now hear of the focus being aimed at the Drag Event carded for Sunday 26th at Camden.
