Southern 100 Racing are pleased to announce that one of the Isle of Man’s major companies is to add its name to the list of our much valued sponsors for the three road races that the organisation runs each year on the Colas Billown Course.
The Peel Group which operates from its head office located inside the course at Billown have agreed to become part ‘of the friendly races’ from next year, when it is hoped racing will resume on the 4.25-mile course.
Club Chairman and Race Secretary George Peach said: ‘We are absolutely delighted that The Peel Group have joined us as a sponsor of our races.
‘Their support in what has been and still is a devastating year with the Covid-19 pandemic is a major boost in confidence for the club and the races which have been running since 1955 and hopefully will be back on the race calendar in 2021.’
Chairman of The Peel Group, John Whittaker said:
“As a keen admirer of the Southern 100 over many years, I am delighted that The Peel Group is supporting this event, which not only attracts top-level road racing talent to the Isle of Man but also provides a major tourism boost for the local economy. I am very much looking forward to the return of road racing to the Billown Circuit in 2021.
”Rachel Palmer, Club Secretary replied: ‘Southern 100 Racing greatly appreciates The Peel Group coming on board as a sponsor and we all look forward to welcoming John Whittaker and his team to our races, especially The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Southern 100 Road Races in July.
