Barbon Bike Hill Climb has been cancelled...

Due to a shortage of key personell and ever increasing costs for the event exceeding income, the club has been left with no choice but to not run the event this year.


No Barbon this year for Motorcycles, despite numerous offers of help organising the event, Westmorland Motor Club still insist shortage of key personel, also the increasing costs are down to the money's paid to the works riders to make an appearance :cry:

So 50+ years of heritage goes down the pan from greed by the club. Poor old Percy Duff also passed away at Christmas from his cancer battle and will surely be turning in his grave :palm:

Quite a few riders have volunteered their help, as little or much as needed but nobody has got a reply.

Seems it's been a plan to drop the bike event for some time.

I've spoken to the NHCA to see if we can take over the event next year, will be discussed at the end of season AGM.
