250 riders 'too old' for GP

1 of 1

Campaigners are organising a widespread protest against the decision not to allow Dan Tarratt, Andy Meacham and Ian Gardner to enter the British GP as wildcards in the 250 class at the British GP.

Supporters feel the British contenders have been turned away because they are ‘too old’.

But the ACU’s Road Racing Committee, which makes the decision, says the verdict is based on quality of entry.

In a previous statement it said: “The Road Racing Committee received applications from three riders in their 30s for the 250cc class. After careful and lengthy deliberation it was decided that none of the three applicants would be of a high enough competitive standard for a wild card entry. This decision also took into consideration information submitted in connection with the 2003 and 2004 Grand Prix’s and the results of these races”.
