Aghadowey Oval all set

Work is continuing apace at Aghadowey Oval, where top flight oval racing will return on Easter Monday after many years absence.

The stadium ,on the former airfield site, is getting a full revamp to bring it in line with modern standards, ahead of a top class programme of racing during 2014.

Promoting the events will be DMC Race Promotions, who already run the very successful Tullyroan Oval near Dungannon, the UK’s newest purpose built oval racing facility.

No stone has been left unturned in the efforts to bring top class racing back to the North West, the track itself at Aghadowey has been widened, realigned and resurfaced, alongside a complete new floodlighting system and new safety wall around the raceway. A new Race Control building has been erected, as well as new toilets, whilst a new state-of-the-art PA system has also been installed. The opening meeting on Easter Monday is shaping up to be a fantastic launch for the new venue, the meeting is expected to be one of the local motorsport events of the year, with the first race leaving the grid at 2pm on Easter Monday afternoon.
