ABkC Chairman Colin Wright resigns
We’ve heard tonight that the ABkC Chairman Colin Wright has resigned, which he has confirmed. He told us that he’s gutted but that it was a long thought-out decision.
Colin was elected as ABkC Chairman prior to the 2014 season and won the two subsequent elections. We have now published a longer interview with him.
The ABkC have released the following official statement:
The Association of British Kart Clubs confirms that the Chairman Colin Wright has unexpectedly resigned and thus the vice-chairman Nigel Edwards will take over as chairman meantime. The ABkC thanks Colin for his dedication over the last three years, he has moved us forward in many areas in his position as chair. In his resignation letter Colin said: “Please accept my resignation as Chairman of the ABkC with immediate effect. I wish the ABkC every success in moving regulated karting forward and hopefully with the review being undertaken by the MSA things are looking much brighter for the future.”
The position of chairman for 2017 will be open to club nominations as usual at the Annual General Meeting in December.
