    • Hi Jan,

      The 14th of January date listed on our site was for the past race day in 2016. We have not updated our site as yet as the 2017 date is yet to be released by the racing club.

      Please check back with us and I will update the page as soon as the 2017 date has been released from the organisers. I have changed our listing to “TBA” so as to avoid any further confusion.

      Best Regards,
