Still no refund. Still no acknowledgement of my email to cancel. Still not been contacted directly about the move of the event to October either. If I hadn’t seen it here I’d be none the wiser. It’s sly, underhand & deceitful!! It’s not about a paltry £17.50.

I have emailed the circuit expressing people annoyance at how this is being handled.

Email is copied below;

Good morning,

I am sending this email on behalf of the RX8 Owners Club as several members have expressed their surprise and some their annoyance that there has been no direct communication regarding the date move and emails requesting refunds have not been acknowledged or replied to/actioned.
As far as I know the only announcement was on Facebook and people are therefore largely unaware of the cut of date for requesting cancellation and refunds.
I trust that the necessary action will be instigated to communicate the date change and their options as a result directly with all who have bookings currently for the original June date.

Regards,

Chris

I used an email address given to me by Chris
They phoned me back the next day asking for card details to send the money as it’s been too long to action a refund off the same order.

Given that we were struggling to fill the exclusive track session for the June date I am concerned that attendance numbers will drop for the October date and the club will potentially be exposed to a substantial financial loss for the track session.
If by 7 days before the April deadline the session is not fully booked then I will cancel with the circuit and monies will be refunded to everyone from the club shop. Anyone who is still going will then need to re-book direct with the circuit when the 11:30 session becomes available.
I have now processed the refunds from the 2020 club exclusive track session. £25 has been returned back to the PayPal address used for the original transaction.

I think it would help if someone actually took control of the event and actively promoted the day rather than running it down.
Castle Combe has always been a brilliant day out =D>
I was going to do a more in-depth post at some point anyway

I spoke with Maria as advised and my money has been refunded. If they’d have been honest about it and sent an email advising that the date had been moved I might not have cancelled, but they didn’t and I found that underhand. I hope everyone has a great day and that the weather holds up ok.

Send me all of the details of your payment etc and I will refund your money myself if that is that you want.
I assume it’s £17 or so for entry
Pete

PS: it’s also not the circuits fault that the clubs organiser of this show just dropped his responsibilities and nobody has yet picked up the pieces ( Thanks )

Your experiences are strange given the above email from Maria. Please read the above again and note her comment regarding some refund requests not being processed until the end of this month.
