As things stand, there are currently 8 races remaining within the 2020 league, with Compton Bassett 5 currently working to reschedule their event, official announcement pending. Due to these unprecedented circumstances, the current plan will be to adjust the 2020 rules to allow for an 8 race league with the best 7 races to score. Clearly this is an evolving situation and we will endeavour to keep you all updated if anything changes further.
