On the right (grass) track
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.
