Salop MC has issued a provisional – and, it has to be said, very tentative – date of March 14 for next year’s Hawkstone International MX.

“As it stands with the current restrictions regarding European travel and no spectators it would be impossible to run,” said club Event Secretary Gard Ford, “so we are only releasing the provisional date and we are not making any preparations for the event.

“We will await further announcements from the UK Government before we can say whether it will be possible to go ahead. We will update everybody when we have news, for now everybody stay safe and follow the guidelines and hopefully we will have some positive information in 2021.”
