BARC buy Mallory lease

This week Mallory Park have announced that BARC have taken over the lease of the circuit. All existing contracts with clubs will remain in place for 2005. At present there are no plans for major changes.

I look forward to seeing all the Mallory regulars and any newcomers throughout the season.

First car meeting 750mc 13th March.

As for it being sold to anyone else, can you really imagine Edwina allowing it to be turned into a housing estate?
A minor point but, again, the ownership of the circuit has not changed at all.

It will be nice to see BARC Mildands run some more races though...

The one thing that would improve Mallory would be to alternate wednesdays between Bikes and cars for testing so that each type had a whole day - otherwise it can be a very long trip for a morning practise session which is often disrupted by crashes.

Very good idea.
For many 3+ hours drive for what ends up to be very little track time due to red flags puts many off.

British Sprint Championship at Mallory?

I feel sure the British Sprint Championship contenders would love a crack at Mallory Park!

If one is ever planned please get in touch!

Thanks.

So am I correct in thinking this is a good thing?

Can anybody explain who benefits from this in terms of the circuit? I thought it was thriving (as much as any circuit does) and was in a similar position to that enjoyed by Castle Combe. If so why the change and furthermore, will the breakfasts still be as good?

The change is because Ron Overend wants to retire, basically, and that triggered the Overends into looking for someone to sell the lease on to. They were very keen to sell it to someone that would continue to use it for motorsport - and mainly club motorsport - and that is exactly what BARC intend to do.

There will be no wholesale changes to the track, but will look to make improvements where needed and financially viable. I wouldn't expect there to be much change in the overall number profile or mix of the race meetings held there. The current staff are to be retained.

Can't be sure about the breakfasts but that is quite an important question!
