Official Press Release.
Rissington Kart Club are saddened to report on the passing of long time Committee Member and a lifetime supporter of Rissington Kart Club and British karting, Bill Hughes. This follows a short illness over the Christmas period.
Many of you will know Bill from the Scrutineering area of our circuit and older racers will remember Bill as a formidable Team owner in the recent past. Everyone associated with the Club would like to pass on our sincere condolences to Bill’s family and recognise that his contribution and infectious enthusiasm for our great sport, will be, forever missed.
We have details of the live webcast of Bill’s service, for those that wish to join.
Date and time: 15th February 12.00
It is with deep regret to announce that following concerns raised by our landowners we are unable to offer any racing for the remainder of 2020. We are actively working with them to reach a mutual agreement for 2021 and we are hopeful that this will be achieved given the history of over 60 years of working amicably together with our joint tenants.
The support we have received from our members, visiting series, spectators and local residents is incredible and extremely appreciated, and we hope to be able to keep this momentum going whilst under negotiation.
Any monies received through our online system will be refunded in full.
We are extremely sad to have to deliver this message but we are working extremely hard to quickly get the situation resolved.
