Autograss: Leewood Motor Club
Date published: 22 August 2020
Leewood Motor Club is looking for a new venue after 20 years of autograss racing near Manchester Airport.
Steve Hayward from Leewood Motor Club said: “All good things come to an end and we will be leaving on very good terms. Before this, the club had raced mainly in the north Manchester area for the first 20 years until moving to the airport raceway.
“We are still eager to get back on track, with lots of new racers now from the age of 10. We are now seeking a new venue within a 25-mile radius of Rochdale, and we are eager to talk to landowners.
“With Belle Vue stadium closing, leaving Greater Manchester without a dirt oval, this is a chance for Leewood to establish a great venue to provide the oval action that will be missed.”
Autograss is a non-contact motorsport that takes place on an oval (approximately 400 metre) track using a natural soil surface.
Leewood Motor Club was founded in the 1970s and was an amalgamation of Lancs & Cheshire Autograss and Leesona-Holt rally club.
