The LAA has cancelled its planned 2021 Round Britain Tour due to be staged at the end of May and replaced it with a ‘mini-tour’ in July.
The LAA Anniversary Mini-Tour will start at Henstridge Airfield in Somerset on Sunday 4 July and conclude at Leicester on Thursday 8 July, after visiting airfields in Cornwall, the Midlands and northern England.
Organiser Neil Wilson said, “We had high hopes of being able to run a full Round-Britain event and we had more than 90 booked participants.
“However the continuing [pandemic] restrictions would have seriously reduced the social elements of the tour and we also don’t know what rules Scotland and Wales are planning at the moment.
“We felt an early decision will allow participants to plan other things for the end of May, and many have already signed up for the Anniversary Mini Tour around England from 4 to 8 July. Hopefully all restrictions will have been lifted from the 21 June.”
