22ND AUGUST 12:30 kick-off
KEEP CHECKING BACK FOR RE-SCHEDULED MEETINGS
Lee dace, 521, won the world of dirt in let's say horrific conditions. Starting with a dry track with enough dust to sink a battleship, which is ironic because when the heavens opened a battleship would have been more than handy. Flooded is one way of putting it underwater would be another way.
So you can see where the name comes from.
We are off to tidy the track up, and the teams are working hard to build some new weapons to race. So we'll see you back for an epic meeting on the 22nd of August, with our Townsend memorial, Open Bangers. The one to win.
If it wasn't for the Townsend family we wouldn't be here today. We still celebrate our links to the Townsend family, in fact, Jamie still does the commentary here.

JUST TO BE CLEAR
There has been a huge amount of noise on social media concerning other promoters banning or reprimanding drivers that hold their licenses who choose to race THEIR cars built by THEM with THEIR money at other tracks. So we thought it prudent to inform you before you pay for our license what our position is on this issue. We want you to race with us as often as possible as you are the ones who bring in the spectators and make this possible. If you choose to race at other tracks as well that is absolutely fine (although we would urge you to support an independent), you will not be banned or disciplined. Just tell them how good Stansted is that is all we ask.
We have a special announcement to make at we hope will change the way our sport is managed and help promote the sport in a manner that will help it last and grow well into the future.
