Camping at Melbourne
If you're planning on joining us to see the high speed action at Melbourne Raceway, why not spend the weekend with us so you don't miss a thing!

Camping is available on site at the cost of £30pp for the full weekend, starting Friday night until the event ends on Sunday. There are a few things to note...Melbourne is a WW2 Airfield and as such there is no electric hook ups or running water, so you need to be fully equipped. There is a shop around 10 mins from the site where you can purchase supplies if needed.

HELP MELBOURNE SURVIVE

FUNDRAISING

Well it's safe to say the drag-racing community, their friends and family, came together and saved this historic racing venue in Melbourne, Yorkshire. But the project continues and the fundraising must be maintained to build on this incredible venue ensuring it's future, we have a track to race on but the site requires a lot more work.

The project continues in 2021.

Last year was an amazing year for Melbourne raceway and it's community. Despite all the difficulties and sadness, we still raced and had some great weekends. So, here's the plan for this year...

The next phase of fundraising at Melbourne is to extend the braking area and tarmac the other side of the pits. You will have seen on social media that work hasn't stopped and we are now looking to raise £45000 to complete the next phase. 

Yours in sport, Trevor Duckworth.Well it's safe to say the drag-racing community, their friends and family, came together and saved this historic racing venue in Melbourne, Yorkshire.
