Disclosed this morning, the traditional curtain raiser for each Oliver’s Mount racing season, the Spring Cup will not take place in 2022.
The reasons for this are detailed candidly via a recent statement issued by the Oliver’s Mount organising team, which follows below:
“Scarborough Borough Council have made some great progress in getting the required permissions to demolish the condemned buildings but there is still more to do on this, so we have taken the early decision now that the Spring Cup will not go ahead in 2022 so that riders and spectators looking at the early Irish events can make plans for them now.
We are planning to start our 2022 season after the TT with a return for The Cock O’The North followed by The Barry Sheene Classic and ending with the Michelin Steve Henshaw Gold Cup in September.
Thanks for your support and patience. We will release event dates once all required permissions are in place and we can then determine the date that the works will start in the paddock.”
Today’s update means that officially the 2022 UK roads season is primed to begin at the Cookstown 100.
Reminder competition at Cookstown runs from the 22nd-23rd April.
