Safe Aim Mutual Promotions Director, Ron Hogg assured 2011 will be another great year for everyone involved and commented, “This year the Championship returns with another 10 rounds. In terms of venue, we have a lot of requests to go places and host races but unfortunately not all of it is suitable for Cub Prix and we have to study available options closely to suit the contingent’s needs. However, this time around we are looking to bring more races to the east coast of the peninsular.”
Ron went on to add about his expectations for the upcoming season and said, “As for the Championship, the one-make races will take a serious step further to train more young riders and there will also be a lot of movement between teams and riders in the CP130, CP115 and Wira categories.”
“Based on the increasing level of competition across the categories over the years, we can already expect the 2011 season to be a fiercely contested one, not just amongst the existing pool of riders but also with the young talents coming into the championship.”
“On that note, we will be making some interesting announcements regarding some changes as the date of the flag-off closes in. All in all, 2011 is sure to be an exciting year for Cub Prix enthusiasts’ nationwide.” concluded Ron.
