On behalf of the North Armagh Motorcycle & Car Club (Tarmac Section) Ltd it is with regret that I confirm that the 2023 Around A Pound Tandragee 100 has been cancelled.
This decision is in part due to the untenable increase in premium quoted for insurance as a result of turbulence within the insurance industry. This was not just a significant increase but an increase of over three times the premium for 2022 and with the added pressure of a substantial excess figure, should a claim arise, that is again insurmountable.
In addition to the position regarding insurance, we have been unable to gain commitment for necessary resurfacing to be carried out, the potential costs for all of the logistics are likely to be up to 25% higher than in 2022, further requirements to secure a road closing order and there is limited time remaining to co-ordinate all the necessary activities. These challenges have all combined to leave the Club in the position that we have no option but to cancel the event.
As a Club we are very disappointed, however we are committed to do everything we can to bring this awe inspiring event back in 2024. We wish to take this opportunity to thank all our competitors, sponsors, landowners, volunteers and spectators for their continued support.
