Improvement Works at Lochgelly Raceway
Added by Kevin on Saturday 18th January
Hardie Race Promotions (In association with Spedeworth Motorsports) are proud of our venue and always strive to provide an excellent facility in terms of racing, but also one that is great for families.
Over the winter period, work has continued at Lochgelly Raceway with continual improvements being made to the facility.
Since the summer of 2019, work has been ongoing on a new and much improved stand, and this work is continuing as we approach the 2020 season. A balocony the length of the stand is now nearing completion which provides excellent panoramic and unobstucted views of the raceway. An access ramp has been added so that families with buggys, or persons in wheelchairs etc can still benefit from this excellent platform. Around 300 people can comfortably be situated on the balcony in the stand. A new toilet facility and track shop (tbc) is expected to be situated below the balcony of the new stand upon completion. This will provide additional ease of access. A large level concrete pad currently sits infront of the balcony with plans to install seating in this location over the course of time.
The banked corner has seen the often troublesome stones removed from in front of the grandstand, with additonal steps being added to improve viewing comfort and safety of spectators.
The pit lane has seen a large tunnel built up over the course of the winter months. It is hoped that the tunnel will provide an additional buzz around the stadium, particulary on major weekends where smoke machines and flashing lights can easily be added to add to the atmosphere. The tunnel will only be used for cars entering the raceway, with an open route available for cars exiting the track. As part of these works, a new gate has been added to the bottom of the pit lane with heightened catch fencing added to it for additional spectator safety.
There has never been a better time to get your name involved with Hardie Race Promotions in what is the 10th anniversary year of Lochgelly Raceway. We have a host of great events lined up across the course of the season and with bigger and better opportunities available, now is the perfect time to get involved with HRP Lochgelly Raceway - Scotland's Ultimate Oval Racing Experience!
We look forward to seeing many of you throughout the 2020 season!
