It was announced today that the third round of the Maxxis British Championship, due to be held this Sunday at Foxhill, has been cancelled. The full statement from the promoters is below:
ACU Events in conjunction with the organising Club have made the decision to cancel round three of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship which was scheduled for the Foxhill, Swindon this Sunday.
After glorious weather on Thursday the rains came at approx. 10am this morning (Friday) and the circuit became flooded immediately. The organisers made consultations with various Weather Forecasters and a clear indication of rain forecast for Saturday and Sunday further forced the decision.
Our picture taken at 1pm today shows the extent of the problem. ACU Events confirm that as per the Championship Conditions the event will not be re scheduled with the already busy Motocross Schedule.
ACU Events and the organising Tamar Valley Club apologise for any inconvenience caused.
