We had previously announced that the 2015 race dates will be made available in October, however, this has been delayed until at least November due to the further need to consider additional environmental factors and the race course itself. As a result, the race dates and season during which the race will be held in 2015 may possibly change (i.e. will not be the same as 2014).
