A Very Hard Decision
Rednal Cancelled and Club is Closing Down.
Southern Supermoto was formed by ourselves 10 years ago and we have be able to maintain good numbers of riders at our meetings until more recent years where we have seen a steady decline.
Joining forces with British at our first Round this year brought that fact home.
This coming round at Rednal we have had to make a decision regards running the meeting and the future of the club,
As all of you know we had to cancel Bordon this year, which has always been a boost for the club financially, with only a small entry for Rednal we have had to cancel, as if we proceeded with the fixture the Club would be insolvent.
With Rider numbers down for all involved with the sport, we feel that the future for the Club is very bleak, and it would be better to call it a day now as we have no alternative financially.
I have spoken to Dave Dearden and he will honor all AMCA licence's at the British Rounds,if you wish to ride.
We have to finalise the clubs finances and if any funds are left we will divide them evenly between the current members.
We would like to thank all, you the Riders that have supported us over the years as well as Snowy, Grant and Lee Roy for there hard work.
Jan and myself have had the highs and lows over the last 10 years with the club but all and all we have enjoyed every minute, we think of you as our friends as well as Riders and we will miss you all.
We hope to see you all at some point in the future.
Additional Collaboration with NORASPORT
Due to the cancellation of Bordon due to circumstances beyond our control we will be now running at Three Sisters on the 19th & 20th of July in conjunction with Nora Sport,
Please book in with Nora for this event.
We will be scoring all SSM Members for Masters and SSM championship separately.
Bordon is POSTPONED
I am sorry to say due to circumstances beyond our control we will have to cancel our event scheduled for the 3rd and 4th of May at Bordon
We are trying to re-scheduling the event for later in the year.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused informing you at this late stage, but we have only just been notified.
Date Change First Round now 29/30 March
SSM will be hosting the first round of the British Championship with NoraSport due to the fact that both original dates were only one week apart we have decided to run on the 29th/30th of March 2014 and cancel the original date. This joint venture will not effect any of the Clubs Championships. I am sure that the first Round for both British and our own SSM Masters will be well supported.
We need to no how many riders we are to expect this year and as always to confirm we have enough to run.
We have to book the medical people and place deposits on the circuits without sufficient riders and memberships we will have to call the season off.
So it is in the riders best interest to send in your membership ASAP or we will be forced to make a decision.
Currently there are 22 memberships returned to SSM.
Bordon Track Day Information
After a meeting today with the Land Warden at Bordon, we were informed that the MOD have recently made a decision to stop all motorized off road events until further notice due to the ground conditions.
They have said that we could still use the square but would not be able to use the usual pit area for parking, this would obviously cut down the amount of available tarmac area for the circuit, with out any off road and a limited amount of tarmac we have made the decision to cancel.
I have spoken to Lydd today and there maybe a possibility of having a track day there in March.
The Championship meeting scheduled for Bordon is still going ahead.
