The event scheduled for Ulverton, Quebec, July 16, 2017 has been cancelled due to restrictions put in place by the CPTAQ (Commission de Protection du Territoire Agricole) that prevents the promoters from executing the event at that venue.
“We are saddened to share this news,” says Mark Stallybrass, President of Stallybrass Promotions Inc. “The track in Ulverton is one of the best natural terrain tracks on the circuit and has a rich history hosting National Motocross Championship events. At this time, it is undetermined if we will return our race to the Ulverton track in the future.”
On a more positive note, Round 6 has been relocated to Motocross Bon Conseil, Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Conseil on the same pre-scheduled weekend—July 15-16, 2017. Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Conseil is located 15 minutes east of Drummondville and is close to two additional major centers, Victoriaville and Trois Rivieres. The promoter, Jean Marc Benoit, is currently making changes to the track and facility to ensure the venue meets national standards. This venue change will not necessitate any travel or accommodation changes for teams as the new track remains in the Drummondville vicinity.
Further details will be made available as soon as possible.
