the popular oval racing magazines etc. There are Oval
racing merchandise stalls in regular attendance as well

Raceway, formerly known as 'High Edge' started in the
early seventies, after trying to get more info on this
retired promoter Dave Pierce says: "Racing originally
started at Buxton in 1974. I have tried to find out the
exact date from George Mycock's widow but she is
uncertain. All it was at first was a field with huge
tyres around the outside and it has since obviously
progressed to what it is today."
Raceway has good facilities for the spectator, we run our
own 'Domestic' Formulas, and we also have Travelling
Formulas on a regular basis too, please see the fixtures
page for a list of whats on, or use the Contact Us page
to request a fixture list via post.
We also feature Drifting Events,
a venture which has been quite successful and we have operated
Drifting now for a couple of years, our Drift events have seen some
of the drivers have success at a national level after cutting their
teeth at our track.
