FYLDE  23/24  Jun

Club Facebook page

The Fylde Club warmly invite you to their open meeting in this our 50th year as a club which like many was borne out of a raceway closure in the 1960’s. We hope with your support to make this a memorable meeting.


The Track

Our circuit is 109 feet long with very wide lane spacing and no tricky twists & turns to learn so you can just concentrate on some great racing on this ever popular circuit.

For those who know the circuit you may like to know the start corner barrier has been repositioned  to avoid cars nudging it on yellow lane.

The braid recess is 0.7mm with a very consistent power output & computerised race control.


Location

The club address is Unit E Ashleigh Mews (Entrance between 18 & 20 Woodlands Grove), Blackpool FY3 9HD. Free parking is available on the yard outside the clubroom.
