SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND AT CADWELL PARK

We would like to say many thanks to all the Marshals and Competitors who took part in a very enjoyable but wet weekend on the 27th and 28th October.

The atmosphere at the park was great and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year!!!

Thanks Again!!!!

SIDECAR TAXI RIDES AT THE CADWELL PARK SIDECAR BASH UNFORTUNATELY CANCELLED

Auto 66 Racing regret to announce that there will be no “Sidecar Taxi Rides” at the Cadwell Park Sidecar Bash on the 27th and 28th October.

This decision was made after discussions with the A.C.U., and it is felt that this year the main focus should be ensuring that the event runs to schedule, and the priority must be given to the competitors and teams in maximising their available tracktime – particularly due to the shorter daylight hours at this time in the season.

We apologise for any disappointment, and do hope to reintroduce this popular charitable event into the 2019 calendar.

Hill Climb 7th October

It is with great sadness the club has had to cancel this event.
We hope to run the full program of hill climbs next year.

CADWELL PARK SIDECAR BASH

The price is £25 per person.

Limited spaces are available.

Proceeds will be in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

NEW LEASE OF LIFE FOR AUTO66

As you are aware we have had major problems. The first issue has been access to the web page. The second one of course is the problem at Scarborough.

If you have read the spring newsletter, Peter Hillaby has announced he be will retiring at the end of the year. Due to the amount of stress caused in the last three or four months he has been advised to take early retirement from the end of June. This will allow for him to go into hospital in July. A major factor in this decision is the stress endured by his wife Jan, brought on by false rumours circulating on social media of which 98% are completely wrong. We would prefer if people asked the Club directly for the true turn of events rather then just hearsay.

The true facts are simple which we will not we go in to now but the main factor was three years ago a well known sponsor was coming on board to sponsor all the meetings. The club was asked to spend all of its finances on updating the equipment. This seemed a very good deal at the time but unfortunately the guy in charged sadly died 3-4 weeks later leaving the club with very little finances.

At this moment we would like to thank all the members that have rallied around helping to organise things. Without this support I am afraid the club would not have survived.

Things are now slowly getting back to normal. Unfortunately we no longer have any paid staff so we are asking you to contact us by email if possible or call the office between 10 am- 12 pm Monday-Friday

What we need is all your help Marshall/Competitor wise for our next big meeting at Cadwell which includes cars, bikes, sidecars and karts We really would appreciate all the help we can get at this meeting! The next big meeting after Cadwell will be the Bank Holiday 25th/26th Battle of Britain meeting at Croft.

Regarding the hill climb at Scarborough taking place on the 19th of August. If Oliver’s Mount is not available we have another venue in mind so we would be grateful if you keep an eye on the web page.

Oliver’s Mount Cock O’The North 2018 Cancelled

It is with utmost sadness that we have to inform road race fans, riders, teams and the media that the 2018 Oliver’s Mount Cock O’The North road races on June 23rd/24th 2018 have had to be cancelled.

Auto 66 Club and its team of volunteers have been working with Scarborough Borough Council for the last 6 months trying to bring the circuit up to the new strict, safety standards that will ensure not just the road races in 2018 continue, but also future events at Oliver’s Mount.

So far, the new required safety levels have not been achieved and so it is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel the 2018 Cock O’The North road races.

With regards to ticket refunds we will continue to try and resolve this complicated situation as soon as possible.

We continue to work closely with Scarborough Council to try and rectify the current situation and will update with any news in the coming weeks.
