Site updated 01/01/18
I'm sad to say that after all the years running the website I have decided that I won't be updating it again after the end of 2017. I have paid for the URL and the hosting site for a good part of 2018 so it will remain for that time as a static record.
As many of you will know, the website was the first one covering UK Oval Racing and in the early years attracted many hundreds of thousands of visitors. In fact if all the numbers of visitors over the life of the site were added together I believe that it would run into millions. It has given me a great deal of pleasure and brought me into contact with a huge number of brilliant people. Sadly I have been getting older and will be 70 in 2018. Also and perhaps more importantly, far fewer people visit the site now and people seem to prefer to make use of social media to get their news and of course give vent to their own opinions. I particularly find it hard to maintain the site when I'm away from home and we still do like to go on regular travels. The sport itself has, perhaps, changed with fewer people wanting to know what is going on behind the scenes and with so many formulas the interest is often spread rather thinly.
For me closing the website is the end of a huge chapter of my life and it's not a decision that I have taken lightly. I may start some form of blog (other than the one I already run about our travels) and explore my thoughts on the racing. Blogs are technically much easier than websites.
I would like to sincerely thank all the people who have helped with the website since I started it in the 1990's. The promoters, the drivers, the racing teams, a huge number of individuals and the folk who have contributed reports, pictures and news. Also in the past a number of people and firms helped with sponsorship of the site, many thanks to them.
I hope that I still get to meet many of you at the various tracks in the future as I certainly hope to keep in contact with the large number of friends I have made through the website.

|Welcome to my UK Oval Racing Pages. If you are new to these
pages I would like to explain that they are intended to cover all
forms of UK Oval racing. This includes Stockcar, Hot Rod and Banger
Racing. If you feel a little lost with so much to see,
go straight to the News page where hopefully you
