    I was also surprised this had closed, but I guess if they couldn't attract enough oval racing then it was going to struggle.

    I went watched the Indycar race they held here, trouble was it kept spitting so they had to keep putting out yellows so they could dry the track. It was a bit of a let down, shame. Didn't realise it had closed

    Supposedly there was 2 more events held last year for bikers. Was kept pretty quiet and no records of it other than 2 dates so not sure if it even happened!

    26th August and 21st September, tickets were on sale also.

    Yes I believe it did, & they still do drifting there now
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    From what I understand, the "process" of closing it and turning it into the logistics hub has taken far longer than anticipated, as a result, there has been the odd event here and there. Drifting takes place outside the venue in an old car park section I believe, They've been told a few times to expect an eviction but it hasn't happened yet.
