And vice-chairman Damien Bates said: “We had a productive conversation and we all agreed we remain 100 per cent committed to putting on a season this year at the first available opportunity.
“There are absolutely no thoughts of cancelling the season. We all want to stage the season in whatever format that can take.
“We have people working on fixtures covering all eventualities in terms of dates and potential rider availability.

“We want you all fit and well and ready to come and enjoy this wonderful sport as soon as it is safe and legal to do so.”
