Rylstone Classic

It is with a heavy heart that today we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Rylstone Classic.

We have made it clear that our intention has always been to deliver a COVID Safe event, developing a COVID Safety Plan and altering the event format to ensure we mitigate the risk that Coronavirus presents to our competitors and the broader community.
While satisfied that our event complied with all necessary legal requirements, running the event in 2020 now does not pass the simple logic test.
As Victoria continues to battle a second wave and parts of New South Wales are seeing escalations in case numbers, the right thing to do is to cancel the event and focus on our individual contributions towards keeping our community COVID Safe. With government advice now against any unnecessary travel, our field of 380+ competitors presents a risk to the broader community.
For those who have supported and sponsored the 2020 event, we thank you. Your enthusiasm to see our event proceed has kept us going. We are therefore delighted to announce that the 10th anniversary Rylstone Classic is now planned for 21-22 August 2021.
Please see a list of FARQs on our website at www.rylstoneclassic.com/covid19 and feel free to reach out directly if you have any questions.
Yours sincerely,
Evan Redman
Event Director

Sunday 13th September 2020

All British Day

Sadly, this event is now cancelled.

As the lockdown is now ramping up I think you would agree that it is more unlikely that we can manage the extra requirements for a Covid safe event.

It is with great disappointment that I concede that the virus has beaten us.

In June, the NSW Government was aiming to allow small music festivals to

operate from August but there is no sign of this happening now. At the moment, we would fall under the Showground category which allows 1 person per 4 square metres but with a limit of 500 people per event (non-seated). With an average of two people per car that would only allow 250 cars.

We are not able hold our planning meetings in the hall at Brush Farm due restriction of numbers so rather than prolong the situation I think it is best if we cancel for 2020.

The most logical action going forward is to credit each club, whatever they have paid, against next year’s event.

Mini Nationals Hay Motorkhana –

Sadly now cancelled

So Sorry everyone.... 🙁
Statement 4: 13 August 2020
2020 Australian Hay Mini Nationals organisers statement.
The organising team have been working tirelessly with The Hay Shire Council, Motorsport Australia, the Hay local Community and all of our sponsors and suppliers trying to establish a way of running a completely SAFE Australian Hay Mini Nationals. We had many new procedures and solutions in place, that while not ideal, were acceptable for a one-off substitute event.
Unfortunately, the second wave of Covid, and the nationwide tightening of restrictions has left us in a position where a successful, enjoyable, and safe event is no longer possible.
With this in mind, we are truly devastated to announce that 2020 Australian Hay Mini Nationals has been cancelled.
All of our plans and organising efforts are now getting laser focused on to the June long weekend in 2021!
We call on all our Hay competitors, officials, attendees, and participants to get ready for a massive 2021!
We are all going to have to go twice as hard, twice as fast, twice as everything to make up for this missing year!!
I Can’t Wait For Hay 2021

Exec Director
