BREAKING NEWS - RIPON 4X4 & VINTAGE SPARES DAY CANCELLED
A SECOND BITE from the 'Beast From the East' has caused this Sunday's (March 18, 2018) Ripon 4x4 & Vintage Spares Day at Ripon Racecourse in North Yorkshire to be cancelled.
Fears that the oncoming cold front - dubbed the 'Beast From the East' after it hit Britain earlier this month - will bring snow, high winds and sub-zero temperatures lead Mark Woodward Classic Events to call off the event.
Mark told CMM: "We have a Met Office snow warning, the potential for high winds and a minus six degrees wind chill forecast for this Sunday at Ripon, plus even worse weather in the surrounding areas.
"The safety and well-being of our staff, our visitors and traders always comes first so we have reluctantly cancelled the event. Sincere apologies to everyone that was looking forward to the day, but there is nothing else we could do in the circumstances."
Mark's next visit to the venue will be Sunday, April 22 for the 16th Ripon Spring Classic Car & Bike Show & Autojumble. See his website for more details.
