Oswestry R3 – 19th & 20th May

Oswestry Radio Car Club is based at the Oswestry Showground which itself was once part of a military camp. For the Oople meeting you will race on our permanent club track which formed from artificial grass. We have a permanent covered rostrum, full floodlighting and spacious race control building.

The venue is ideal for those who want to camp over the weekend – there are hard service roads and plenty of grass. Caravans will be charged at £5 per night and tent camping is free. Please note we cannot provide electrical hook-up for the caravans, tents or your pitting area. Toilets will be open 24 hours a day and there is a drinking water tap. The toilets are all ground floor providing good disabled access. We will be providing hot food during Saturday and Sunday.

DIRECTIONS

The track is located at the Oswestry Show Ground in Shropshire. Road links to the venue are superb: from the north, M6, M56 and A483 all dual carriageways, from the south M6, M54 and A5. The track is easy to find as it is ¼ mile from the A5. For Sat Nav users our post code is SY11 4AS.
