The Formula Ford Association Inc. is disappointed to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Historic Sandown race meeting organised by the VHRR.
The event was scheduled for the November 6th - 8th weekend.
Following is a communication sent by the VHRR to all members and previous competitors of the event:
"As you may be aware, the VHRR Committee has for sometime been in pre-planning for Historic Sandown 2020 and incorporating both the Government’s Covid-19 restrictions and Motorsport Australia’s Return To Race strategy into the deliberations.
Our Event Secretary and Clerk of Course have been developing Supplementary Regulations consistent with Government restrictions, which would have required restrictions on the number of persons onsite, including NO Spectators, likely limit on Pit Crew of 1 or 2, no Trade Stands, No displays and no food or beverage sales.
Whilst it was likely that the event would be conducted at a financial loss, our primary consideration has been the health and safety of Competitors and Crew, and our Officials and strict compliance with the Government restrictions applicable at the time of the event.
Unfortunately the situation in Victoria has continued to worsen with increasing doubt on our ability to conduct the event.
The VHRR Committee wishes to advise that we have come to the reluctant unanimous decision to cancel Historic Sandown 2020. We trust that you can appreciate our efforts in attempting to run the event and that you understand that we have been left with no choice in reaching this decision.
We look forward to welcoming you to Historic Sandown 2021 when hopefully this dreadful virus will be under control. In the meantime we trust that you and your families maintain good health in these difficult times."
