 Castletown Board Backs Postponement of Southern 100

Castletown commissioners and the towns Chamber of Trade have supported the decision to postpone the Southern 100.

The road races scheduled to take place from July 16th to the 19th became the latest victim of the foot and mouth crisis last week. Tynwald have passed legislation, which will allow racing to take place on the Billown Circuit from September 14th to the 16th should the epidemic clear up in time.

The Chairman of the commissioners, Alwyn Collister, believes the race organisers made the right decision. 'Obviously with the latest outbreak in the Lancashire area, it was always likely this would happen' he said.

'In fact I don't think the Southern 100 Committee has had any alternative but to postpone the races'. 'It goes without saying that the traders in the town will be affected and the buzz in the town during that week will also be missed'.

'Let's just hope that by September the position will have improved and the races will be able to take place'.
