Myself and Dave2112 have booked onto this event as it’s the closest venue to us and looks like a good place for us both to try our latest cars on track for the first time. It would be good to be reunited with a few more members albeit at a minimum 2mtrs!

Oxfordshire - Top quality tarmac with a good mix of corners, long straights and run off area Making Abingdon perfect for car track days. Below you will find the full list of Abingdon own car track day dates.

That filled up quickly. Given how close it is, I was quite tempted.

Subject: ABINGDON CANCELLED HOLMES


We literally cannot believe we are sending you this email but the MOD have cancelled our event for this Friday the 19th June at Abingdon.

After having approved all of our of COVID-19 policies and procedures today they have advised that we would contravene the government advice of no more than 6 people gathering together and they have a duty of care to stop us running. We have explained that guests will not gather as there is no briefing on the day and fought our corner but to no avail. Why they have announced this now we do not know. So many businesses are back open including parks, zoos and country estates and circuits are running their events too so we just don't understand this decision.

We are truly devastated that after the worst 3 months for so many reasons we now can't run our first event back.

Today we have a huge amount of admin to ensure everyone knows so please allow us short amount of time to do that then contact us by email to advise what you would like to do with your place.

Ed, Tasha and the team are so so so sorry. We know how much you all wanted the event to happen as did we.

It feels like we will never see you all again but we must remember this is just a glitch and we must stay safe so that we can enjoy life on the other side of all this.

Best wishes

Ed and Tasha
