At the 11th hour the £100k challenge to resurface the strip and update facilities was met. Although the land owner was offered much more in rent by a parts manufacturer the goodwill PDRC has with the owner has produced a 10 year lease sharing the facility. Plan is to resurface the runway in January with the intention of racing again in May 2018.
Closer to home, still no news of the future of Shakespeare County Raceway but contrary to rumours of 2 foot ditches and much activity the facility is accessible and fully intact. There is some work in the area of the Sunday market but no building as yet.
