Billown races compromise reached

ACU Events Limited and Southern 100 organisers had been at loggerheads over the Steam Packet races, the former saying there was no room for them in 2009, but a compromise has now been all but reached.

The EGM takes place a week on Sunday, September 14th, at 8pm at the Masonic Lodge, Hope Street, Castletown.
