Please refer to the main Trackstar event page for details of how the event will be different this year. The information is largely accurate, and is being updated so the information of what to expect will be clear.

You MUST check in with the NHS app on arrival following a change to the rules on 12th April 2021. If you are unable to use the app, you MUST report to reception.

It was also made clear today that spectators will not be allowed inside the complex for Trackstar. There is however public land surrounding the track where the race can be safely viewed through the perimeter fence.

We announced the date of re-arranged date of Trackstar back in early September, so our goodwill voucher scheme has now closed. The transfer scheme is open. If you entered via FullOnSport, please email us with details of who you wish to transfer your place to. If you entered via Active you should be able to manage your own transfer. All Trackstar transfers must be complete by 8th May 2021.

Our focus is currently on Trackstar, we are now looking at arrangements for Bates Green Gallop, and Twilight Chase.
