Racers return to Oliver’s Mount

Road racing is to return to Scarborough’s Oliver’s Mount road circuit.

Racing was cancelled when 12 people were injured in two crashes in September 2017 when competitors crashed through fencing and hit spectators.

The venue attracts thousands of spectators to the 3.8km (2.4 mile) track. It has been announced two meetings will take place this year, in July and September.

Events at the circuit had previously been run by the Auto66 Club, but now a newly-formed motorcycle racing club, Two Four Three Road Racing Association, will be in charge of the races.

Scarborough Borough Council has granted a lease of the site to GrantRoberts Ltd, operating as the racing club and headed by two former Isle of Man TT racers Eddie Roberts and Mick Grant.
