A press release from VFM* brings some positive optimism for the 2021 scooter rally season. Details are below, and like us keep your fingers, legs and toes crossed while reading it!
Here’s the GOOD NEWS you’ve all been waiting for…
VFM* are delighted to announce that this year’s Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally will be going ahead at Sandown Airport, PO36 0JP, from 26th – 30th August 2021.
We’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to bring you what we believe will be the best rally of the year at our brilliant new venue.
Now for the BORING bit…
Before we all get too giddy, please remember that this rally will ultimately depend on, and be subject to, Government COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions. The safety of our rally-goers, staff, bands and Island residents is paramount and we WILL take every step to ensure that our rally is run in a safe manner. We will continue to closely monitor all Government updates and event industry practice and policies.
We will be releasing more details shortly, but in the meantime we have our first batch of earlybird tickets available. Visit the VFM website http://vfmscoot.co.uk/_pages/paypaliowaa.htm for details.
So as we said, fingers crossed things are looking positive for the future. But as VFM state, the Isle of Wight and other such scooter rallies will all depend on Government guidelines and restrictions, which themselves ultimately rely on this terrible pandemic being brought to an end. Please remember the old slogan that “Coughs & Sneezes Spread Diseases” and as tempting as it may be to get out and socialise again sooner rather than later, keeping a distance from everyone else for a little longer will hopefully be beneficial for us all in the long term.
Take care, stay safe and hopefully see you at the Isle of Wight in August!
