It has become apparent the merging of three data bases to create AERASPACE has created many rider distance anomalies. Jo Bailey the AERA distance registrar is working her way through errors as they are brought to her attention.
All who were expecting recognition and those who are wondering if they are there, should go into AERASPACE and check their distance and advise Jo Bailey of any anomalies ASAP, please email
