Ly­d­den Hill fu­ture still not se­cure as coun­cil asks for changes to plans

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ly­d­den Hill’s fu­ture re­mains uncertain as the lo­cal coun­cil has asked for changes to be made to the Kent track’s plan for ma­jor devel­op­ment.

Dover District Coun­cil, which is con­sid­er­ing Ly­d­den’s plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion to al­low di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion, has asked for var­i­ous pro­pos­als to be mod­i­fied and re-sub­mit­ted.

Cir­cuit owner Pat Do­ran said: “The plan­ning com­mit­tee seems quite agree­able but they have asked for a few mi­nor changes. We want to build a row of work­shop and of­fice build­ings along one side of the pad­dock, while hos­pi­tal­ity units and grand­stands will ex­tend up the hill. As­sum­ing we get per­mis­sion we are prob­a­bly look­ing at a five-year build plan.”

In the mean­time there will be no more race meet­ings this year af­ter the World Ral­ly­cross round at the end of this month be­cause of the ex­ten­sive al­ter­ations to the pad­dock. But the Bri­tish Ral­ly­cross round at the end of Au­gust is ex­pected to go ahead as planned.

Ly­d­den: No club rac­ing for this sea­son
