Event Information


Hello Racers,

It is with our most sincere apologies that we are in a position that we must postpone the Seymour Skinner race to a later date in the year.  Circumstances out of our control have put us in this difficult situation.

Your registration fee will carry forward.  Should you decide that you would like to be reimbursed, we completely understand and are happy to reimburse the entry fee.

As soon as we can confirm a date we will advise you so that you can prepare for the event. Again we apologize for having to postpone the race with such short notice to you.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me (casey.gombik@mec.ca) or Shannon Penway (Shannon.penway@mec.ca).  I am best available via email.

Thank you for your support.

Casey Gombik
