Hi Silver Fern enthusiasts
After the recent period of Level 3 COVID-19 travel restrictions in Auckland being downgraded to Level 2 along with the rest of the country, we are still uncertain as to what level COVID-19 restrictions the country will be in by November, so we have made the decision not to proceed with the proposed 2020 URG Silver Frond event.
This has been a very hard decision to make but in the long term interest of our business model, we are left with no other option.
To run events of this magnitude we need to be in Level 1 or lower to cater for the numbers of people involved as these are well in excess of 100 people.
For this event to be viable we need a minimum of 45 entries. Each team would be a minimum of three people (45 x 3 = 135) and the number of officials and marshals is well in excess of 100 people, so clearly we need to be in Level 1 or lower to run an event.
We are aware that a number of customers are still able to commit to events and are looking for activities to use their vehicles, so with this in mind we would suggest that you support the NZRC Auckland Rally set for the 14th & 15th November.
Once we have a clearer view on the long term outcomes, we will set an event date and make the necessary notifications.
In the meantime we ask for your patience as we work through the way forward and would like to thank everyone involved with our events for their support and we look forward to bringing you all an event in the near future.
