They said that after further consultation with legal counsel, the association was satisfied that they would not be infringing on the legal process before the Courts if they continued with their calendar of races. The race took place as scheduled on Sunday, May 19 beginning at 8:30 a.m. from San Ignacio Town and finishing in Belize City at Leslie’s Imports.
