EASTBOURNE’S return to racing is likely to be held over until the 2023 season.
The Arlington club withdrew from the Championship during the current campaign, and extensive efforts are now being made to reinstate the sport at the Sussex venue.
A club statement said: “The BSPL has agreed to re-issue Trevor Geer with his promoter’s licence based on the fact he had nothing to do with the financial instability the club suffered this season.
“Trevor has a team of people helping him to rebuild and raise the funds required to run in 2023.
“People have already come forwards pledging support, both hands on and financially and this is more than welcome.
“Over the coming months we will be looking to be more active on social media, set up a website and carry on working behind the scenes to bring this amazing club back to the track, not just for 2023 but well beyond that.”
Any offers of support, or any other help or suggestions, can be made to [email protected]. This address should not be used for enquiries relating to the 2021 season.
Club representative Mark Horsman said: “It is a disappointment that we can’t run in 2022, but the club will return in 2023.
“Chris Louis and the BSPL have been a great help to us and with the backing of stadium owner Eric Dugard and the new management team, a bright future is in place for the club.”
