This prestigious drag strip has been the home of drag racing in the north since the late 70's. A proving ground for some of the greatest Uk drag racers for decades and home to one of the most amazing racing communities.

BEGINNERS TO ELITE

One of the greatest attractions to drag racing is that anyone can do it, truly, if you can safely accelerate and stop a vehicle, and keep it in a straight line, then you can race. Even the Pro's started somewhere and that's on the startline, all welcome here at Melbourne Raceway.

Melbourne Raceway (formerly York) is one of the most renowned drag racing strips in the Uk, set-up in the late 70's this track could tell a few stories. The original organisors of this prestigious runway and a family who dedicated decades of their lives running it were the Murty family who deserve the upmost respect and recognition for the work they did, looking after the track and running the events.

With a loyal and dedicated community following, Melbourne Raceway is without doubt a very loved and adored drag-strip that has played a part of so many racers and enthusiasts lives for decades, some people came here with their grandfathers, grandmothers, mums and dads and began racing here themselves where their own children have followed and the cycle continues. Unfortunately Melbourne Raceway closed down in 2017, a heart-breaking development for the community. Straightliners have stepped up to the plate in the hope of helping the community rebuild and bring back Melbourne Raceway, it is incredibly important to the Uk racing community and it deserves to be preserved and kept open for racing. Melbourne Raceway has been such an important venue and the backdrop to some incredible moments in drag racing, it is a part of racing heritage in the Uk and it deserves it's rightful place as the North of England's premier drag-racing venue, we aim to brig it back to life by working with the community.
