After the decision was made to cancel the second moto’s at Blaxhall which hosted the British Championship at the weekend, the organisers have posted the following statement as to why the day was cut short.

Following the unfortunate cancellation of the second block of racing at the Dirt Store ACU British Championship at Blaxhall, the organising club Woodbridge DMCC and RHL Activities the Championship promoter wishes to make the following statement.

Despite having above the required medical cover for the event, three ambulances were required to leave site in a short period of time. This was following a medical emergency with a spectator and then two riders sustaining serious injuries within 30 minutes of one another.

Unfortunately, the local hospital was running over capacity. The patients had to continue being treated by the medical crews from our event and therefore were unable to handover care and return to site.

Following the 90 minute delay and with the medical crews still being held at the hospital, the Club and Championship promoter had to make the difficult decision to cancel the second block of racing due to rider and spectator safety being of paramount importance.

The club and RHL Activities are both deeply disappointed that the day had to end early, however hope that everyone understands rider and spectator safety has to be of paramount importance.
