Default Stradsett

Just got a letter from NVTEC to say Stradsett is cancelled next year onwards. Due to hire costs.

That's a shame, I liked Stradsett last year when I went and was thinking of going again next year with an engine

They should have known that hiring Jeremy Clarkson was a step too far......

I've just had a look at their website and there is no mention of no rally next year, in fact the opposite.

Got the letter in my hand. It says "Due to unreconcilable differences between our club & the Stradsett estate over hire costs for the park land & the running of the rally,I am writing to let you all know that the Stradsett Park rally will no longer take place". I assume they inform club members first.

You would think they would update the website.

Got the same letter today. Big shame as it was getting better every year.

A real shame Stradsett was one of my favorite ralles. Even had lots of decent junk stalls which seem to be on the decline now at most rallies.
