Redcar Racecourse set for another spectacular racing season after a 250,000 refurbishment

Thursday 25 February 2016

Teesside’s Redcar Racecourse is eager to kick start the 2016 racing season on Easter Monday, 28th March, after undergoing a £250,000 refurbishment.


The racecourse – which is yet again the cheapest paid admission racecourse in the country having kept its admission prices frozen for the ninth year in a row – will host seven Premier Meetings between March and November.


Redcar Racecourse’s general manager, Amy Fair, said: “The region went through a tough time last Autumn with the closure of SSI and a number of other businesses, and we understand that times are tough for many of our racegoers.  


“We’re very proud to be part of the community and that’s why we’ve kept our admission prices the same because we believe everyone should be able to enjoy a fabulous day at the races.”


Over the winter months the racecourse has undergone a £250,000 refurbishment with a number of improvements including a new roof on the parade ring viewing stand, new windows on the top floor of the Petch Stand, a revamp to the hospitality boxes and the toilet facilities, and improvements to the Crow’s Nest “dine and view” restaurant.


Amy is thrilled with the renovations and is looking forward to seeing what racegoers make of the developments.


She said: “We’ve been very busy over the winter period. The 2015 season was spectacular and this year we expect it to be even better thanks to the improvements we’ve made. 


“The racecourse has invested in a number of facilities around the venue as part of a 5 year improvements plan because we want to offer visitors a great racing experience.”


The Tees Valley racecourse has an exciting schedule of 18 racing fixtures until the seasonal finale in November. The highlights of the season include:

To celebrate the start of the season on Easter Monday 28th March, Redcar Racecourse is giving one lucky child the chance to win a VIP day for four people by taking part in their ‘egg-cellent’ colouring in competition. The winner will also see their artwork displayed on the front cover of the official racecard and have a race named after them on the day.

Parties of 10 or more can also save over 20% when they book their Grandstand or Course Enclosure admission tickets in advance.


There are many hospitality options from the Dine & View package in the Crow’s Nest Restaurant to racegoers’ packages including admission, a racecard, food and drink.
