It was going to be the one event of the season – the one we’d all look forward to and we hoped against hope that it would go ahead. It was going to be open air, with lots of space to keep everyone apart and give us something to look forward to. In recent weeks we’d heard rumours that it was definitely going ahead on its end of August date, but we’re sorry to have to tell you that the 2020 Malverns Classic is cancelled – with all racers and spectator tickets being refunded and the event rescheduled for 2021.
This is particularly hard for the organisers, who had had to cancel the 2019 Malverns late in the day due to waterlogged fields and event arena. The move to a late August date was hoped to give the midsummer weather a chance to sort itself out and while the new date proved to be good for giving us all hope that the Malverns Classic would be the first post-lockdown event to look forward to, it wasn’t to be. It seems that Herefordshire is a new COVID hotspot and the Council have had to say ‘no’.
So, that’s it – the GT Malverns Classic is cancelled for this year, but roll on 2021. We’re DEFINITELY going to need to get to that one. Who’s with us?
Here’s a quick poach of the Instagram announcement.
