Yorkshire Tunnel Run Thread - Why Closed?

Hi,

I woke up to find a nice email saying my posts had been deleted but there was no reason stated.

As fat as I know I can't find a new thread on it so it all seems very cloak and dagger.

And

Dan, sort you inbox out mate

Re: Yorkshire Tunnel Run Thread - Why Closed?

I suppose because people have died on Leeds inner ringroad in silly accidents in the past. IF an accident happened, and AO were seen to have been complicit in promoting such a run, even passively, then there could be legal ramifications for them.

So I support their decision. Tunnel runs have to be a seriously naff activity anyway i'd have thought.

Evidently it's down to forum politics. The London one's been closed too. Of course if a bunch of Alfas should happen to show up at the same place at the same time and all coincidentally drive through certain tunnels then that would be a truly bizarre occurence
