Brian Adcock, Race Director, Castle Virtual Series:

“Determined not to let the pandemic and its consequences get us down, we were nimble enough to bring forward plans for a winter virtual series and the Spring Virtual Series of races was born. A few weeks later we have successfully put on 5 virtual races, had just over 3,000 participants, engaged with thousands more and raised a staggering £30,010 for Macmillan. Who knew, when we first set out, there was such a market for virtual racing? Conscious of our responsibilities towards our sponsors and charity partners and still unsure when the real race season will get the green light we have decided to keep going and are delighted to bring you the next race in the Series.”
