SKCWA Statement

Hi Drivers,

With major disappointment we regret to inform you that the 2019 Collie Grand Prix Race event of 30th November is cancelled for reasons beyond our control.

SKCWA president Mike Sully has worked tirelessly since a previous rejection on October 10 to save this event.

Motoring South West (MSW) advised they will not honour our booking.

We will not go into all the details (politics).

SKCWA have been utilizing Collie Motorplex since July 2007.

MSW has formed the opinion that the short track is no longer safe for karting.
We can inform you that Motoring South West is of the opinion that the short track and the long track are safe for motorcycles.

SKCWA had continued to promote the November 30 event hoping for an early resolution. We apologize for any inconvenience and/or confusion. We decided drivers needed a minimum of 2 weeks notification of cancellation.

This is our major event for the year. It would be very helpful to SKCWA to know if you had planned to attend. Please reply by:

• return email to superkartclubwa@gmail.com
OR
• text to Mike Sully 0418 914422

SKCWA have requested a meeting with the board of MSW to attempt to resolve the issues for 2020 events.

Alternate event plans for November, December, January are being investigated.
Members will be notified of a meeting date and venue for discussion and decisions.

Kind regards

David Clarke
Secretary
SKCWA
