High Edge Raceway became 'Buxton Raceway' under the
promotion of Dave Pierce, who had been involved with the
High Edge promotion previously and also at Bolton. From
then on under the Buxton Raceway banner the stadium has
gone from strength to strength, gone are the days of
races with just 2 or 3 cars, the seasonal fixtures see
local and national formulas with very full grids of cars,
and each meeting is run to the highest standard of
organisation and adhering to all health and safety
Buxton Raceway hosted a "Banger old Boys" meeting and many of the
drivers from these pages who were just about "still in the game" were
out on track for one last time,

for reading, we look forward to getting any more photos
to add to this online collection.
