On the right (grass) track

Motorcycle News (UK) - - News -

A farm lo­cal to me hosts grasstrack rac­ing. I went along to a meet­ing last year and en­joyed it, so planned on go­ing to sev­eral this year. How­ever, the lo­cal association which op­er­ates them doesn’t up­date its web­site cal­en­dar, doesn’t submit all its dates to the Grasstrack GB web­site cal­en­dar and doesn’t pub­lish them in the press.

I did man­age to track down the odd one through the speed­way press, but they were ei­ther can­celled or relo- cated, again with­out no­ti­fi­ca­tion on their web­site, so I didn’t get to any. I ap­pre­ci­ate that these events and the bod­ies which or­gan­ise them are run by vol­un­teers and that lim­ited en­tries and re­luc­tant farm­ers may cause can­cel­la­tions and re­lo­ca­tions at the last minute, but if you want to at­tract more spec­ta­tors we need to know when and where race meet­ings are to be held. And please don’t rely on so­cial me­dia. Some of us aren’t in­ter­est­ing enough to have Face­book or Twit­ter ac­counts.
