Cheers

My names Tom and I didn't race there back then or anything, was too young for all that. But I was there recently and always wanted to see what it was like when it was running. The tracks very run down now, very overgrown so it's hard to imagine what it was like.

Actually just found this video linked to a while back on here;

Thats great if you have any clips that you could get into digital format though.

I seem to remember that the track and camping area belonged to the "Circus" which used to use the old farm as a winter lay up area.One year we camped on the school field to the left of the first straight as you looked up the start hill.Really good neat tight track which gave the smaller riders a fair crack as there was no where for the power riders to get away from them. Would be good to see a revamp of the track along those lines again, short sharp bursts of speed - over a jump - round the berm etc.Where is Albert now and what happened to the famous "Blood Hounds", :?: :?:

I keep hearing from time to time about this track being revamped. Anyone got any news or update on this? I'm very keen to see something done as it's local to me.
