Oliver’s Mount has confirmed its new road racing calendar for 2020 – and the big news is that there is a new date for the Barry Sheene Classic.
Race organisers have just announced two action-packed three-day weekend events in 2020. And if all goes to plan, the Barry Sheene Classic which was due to take place across July 25-26 will now take place across August 14-16. The Gold Cup will still happen in September – but will also run across three days, from September 11-13.
Both events will feature three action packed days of road racing action, with practice and qualifying on Friday, and with two full days of racing over the weekend.
As you’d expect it’s taken some hard work to get the go ahead for racing to resume at the Scarborough-based circuit. And it’s paid off. Organisers have secured the full backing of Scarborough Borough Council in addition to support from the ACU.
Speaking about the news, Director Eddie Roberts said: “I’m delighted to reveal our exciting plans for Oliver’s Mount. We’ve been forced to delay the calendar, but now to have two 3-days meetings is brilliant news. More time on track on Friday will allow the riders to get back up to speed, and two full days of racing is unprecedented at Oliver’s. We must thank the local council and ACU for their support”.
