VFM, organisers of The Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally, have confirmed that the annual August Bank Holiday event will go ahead in 2020 despite rumours of a coronavirus cancellation.
News has been spreading across social media that the event had been called off due to coronavirus. This was supported by an unofficial website stating that the event had been cancelled.
The event has been based out of Smallbrook Stadium in Ryde for the last 2 decades, but it was announced back in December that this year it will be moving to Sandown Airport. The team at Sandown Airport have confirmed that the event is 100% going ahead.
Over 5,000 scooters descend on the Isle of Wight each year, bringing a huge boost to the local economy.
