UNITED DOWNS RACEWAY. ST.DAY (01/03/2019)

A press day was held @ St.Day raceway Cornwall this morning, as the track promotion, Autospeed were given notice that their lease renewal wasn’t going to be automatic and the land owned by Cornwall County Council, would put out to tender. (It has to be added there is mining interest in this particular area).

A press meeting was called to celebrate 50 years @ United Downs, but obviously the possibility of it being their last year came up. Nine local drivers across a multitude of formula attended today, which included our very own Alan Humphrey and ye’ ol’ Y Type. The majority of attendees were interviewed and an article has gone out on BBC Spotlight (local news) tonight. The initial feedback from the Press is that they fully support the facility and can’t understand why it should go. Time will tell?

Ed’s note. Well done Alan for supporting the Press day and again continually raising the profile of Heritage Stock car racing.
