I was there at the weekend, seemed quite well supported.

There was some exotic tackle at work, my sons friend ran his '66 Chevy pickup in RWYB and went reasonably well.

Hopefully the track will be the full quarter mile for the next meeting.

I enjoyed it too, but I have to say that I was less than impressed at the flagrant ignorance of social distancing by some of the crowd , despite the best efforts of the organisers. . Worst offenders were the knuckle dragging crew who thought it a good idea to watch the action by blocking one of the clearly delineated track crossings in the paddock.

No idea , I'm just a punter - but if you contact them via FB I'm sure they will let you know.

Will be 1/8th this year at least. Funds are currently being spent on improving the pits and building a club house.

The 3 meetings we managed to have in 2020 were fantastic and sold out with limited numbers allowed due to covid restrictions. When these limits are lifted I am sure the crowds will be there to fill the new grandstands and the all new viewing area. I for one cant wait!
