The organisers of road racing at Oliver's Mount in Scarborough has announced that its events are scheduled to go ahead for this year.

Oliver's Mount Racing Ltd. and 243 Road Racing Association says it has been forced to reschedule events due to ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic, but they are now announcing two action-packed three-day weekend events in 2020. 

The Barry Sheene Classic was due to take place on the 25th-26th July, but it has now been rescheduled to the 14th, 15th and 16th of August.

The Gold Cup will remain on the 11th, 12th and 13th of September.

Each meeting will have three days of road racing action, practice and qualifying on Friday, with two full days of racing on Saturday and Sunday.

Oliver's Mount Racing Ltd has been working behind the scenes to ensure road racing continues in 2020 and the organisers say they have the full backing of Scarborough Borough Council. 

Director Eddie Roberts said:

“I’m delighted to reveal our exciting plans for Oliver’s Mount. We’ve been forced to delay the calendar, but now to have two 3-days meetings is brilliant news.

More time on track on Friday will allow the riders to get back up to speed, and two full days of racing is unprecedented at Oliver’s.

We must thank the local council and ACU for their support”.

The organisers added:

"We are extremely excited to unveil our plans for the second half of 2020. We are proud to say that all our partners, Suzuki UK, RST, Arai, Bennetts, and Ashcourt’s are fully behind us and are extremely excited to be a part of the new three-day events at Oliver’s Mount.

However, we are in constant communication with the ACU, plus the local council and we will abide by any government restrictions which may come into effect later in the year. It goes without saying the safety of our supporters, teams, and riders must come before anything else.

Further information and details will follow in the coming weeks as only a limited number of pre-sold tickets will be available.

There will be further restrictions for riders/entrants and paddock movement/occupancy. However, we are making plans in line with government and ACU guidelines. 

Current day/weekend/season tickets will be valid and tickets in limited numbers will be available from our partners Duke Marketing. We would like to assure our supporters if the event does not go-ahead full refunds will be made.

Rest assured, the team is working hard to make sure road racing continues at Oliver’s Mount with two, three-day events for 2020.

More information/details will follow in the coming weeks. Don’t forget to see our popular social media channels, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and".
