I have tried to find out the exact date from George Mycock's widow but she is uncertain. All it was at first was a field with huge tyres around the outside and it has since obviously progressed to what it is today.”
It had been suggested to me that I take a look at Buxton Raceway. I did a bit of homework and took a trip over to Derbyshire to take a closer look. I was quite amazed by what I found. The site itself is located a few miles from the popular Spa town of Buxton, and is nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of Derbyshire; I must have said Wow! about 5 times along the way. At the raceway, they host many different types of events; with a whole multitude of different vehicles, 1300 Stock cars, Bangers, Hot Rods and F1 Stock cars are just a few examples of the many different types of races you can expect to find here. There has been a racing track on this site now since approximately 1974. This attraction is a fun family experience that cannot fail to get the female members of your family all revved up.
