    Default Towcester - changes you need to know about

    Towcester - changes you need to know about

    Just so you are aware at Towcester there is dog racing Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon this of course will affect the site and race programme so please see below the changes you need to know about. The dog racing is televised worldwide so they have to work to strict timings which we all need to work with.

    Camping Area
    This will be in a new place on the left of the main gate between wall (which runs parallel with the A5) and the horse racing circuit. Please leave a roadway clear in the centre of the camping area for traffic.

    Paddock
    In the centre of the course but stay to the left as it is opposite the camping area just across the horse racing circuit. Some scrutineers will be available Friday afternoon / early evening so please get your craft done early if possible.

    On Friday night if you have a dog with you please make sure that they remain in your vehicle (preferably non visible and audible to the greyhounds) until you have reached the campsite. Please do not break this rule as it will affect our ability to return to the site in future years.

    Dogs
    All dogs MUST be kept in leads at ALL times. NO dogs are allowed near the greyhound track, around the grand stand and towards the main entrance at any time there will be signs Ďno dogs allowed past this pointí please adhere to them otherwise we will not be allowed back on site. The site have advised us other dogs on the site may affect the greyhounds so we need to make sure we minimise any risks of affecting their racing.

    Race Programme

    The programme is tight and requires everyone to work together please see attachment for details and amended timings. Donít be late briefing timings have changed. If we do not keep to timings laps or races will need to be dropped.



    Engines off
    Friday evening: no engines allowed after 17.00 hrs
    Saturday evening: no engines allowed after 17.00 hrs
    Sunday afternoon: no engines allowed after 14.00 hrs
    If this presents a problem with getting your craft off or on your trailer please ask for help! Please do not break this rule as it will affect our ability to return to the site in future years.

    Food on site
    There will be a food vendor selling burgers, chips etc if you donít fancy cooking at the dog racing for Friday and Saturday nights. Phil will also be on site as normal during racing.

    Water
    Available from tap at main entrance.

    Saturday night entertainment
    There will be no separate entertainment. Instead you will have free entry to the greyhound races and access to Bar 4000 (ground floor of the Empress Stand) where there will be various betting facilities available. Racing starts at 18.30 hrs and when you buy a race programme (£2.50) you will get a toteexacta bet worth £2.00 for free! If you have never placed a bet before, the programme contains a good explanation and what greyhound to look out for. There will be again a food vendor selling burgers, chips etc if you donít fancy cooking.

    Towcester Racecourse have been more than helpful in making sure we can race here with all the greyhound racing going on as well, so your co-operation

    (especially when you are a dog owner) is absolutely important to us and them.

    For more details and a copy of the race programme we need to keep to please see attachments.

    Please come along and help make it a successful event we look forward to seeing you.
