“Despite the best efforts of Wexford Motor Club, we regret to announce that we are unable to run our Sprint event on 18/19th July as planned.”

We had been awaiting an email from the Hill-climb & Sprint Committee confirming championship status for the event , which we did receive, but unfortunately by the time it arrived we had passed the deadline for a road closing application.

Wexford Motor Club has made every effort to run this event, which included the holding of space in local newspapers to publish the required road closure notifications and we had earlier secured a concession from the Local Authority for a five week notice period as opposed to the normal six weeks. This required that we have our application in at the latest before lunch Tuesday in order to meet deadlines for publication unfortunately despite a huge effort by some people the email confirming championship status to the event was not received by Wexford Motor Club in time. We did contact the Local Authority immediately after lunch on Tuesday but the response was that we had passed the deadline.

We would like to thank everyone, in Wexford Motor Club, The Hill-climb & Sprint Committee and especially the competitors, who tried to make it happen.

Wexford Motor Club has been associated with hill-climbing in Ireland for a very long time and is committed to supporting hill-climbing in whatever way it can so if a suitable date can be found then we will do our best to run an event later this year.
