9th April 2024 - After the huge disappointment, and financial burden, of having to cancel Sandon 2024, we then found it impossible to reschedule during April. So, it is a massive relief to be able to thank our main, reception and race sponsors who have all shown their support in confirming that they will remain in place for 2025, and that some have even donated their fee for 2024 to help mitigate the costs.
