Racing in York

One of York’s most famous landmarks is the racecourse at Knavesmire. This is a perfect place for a flutter on the horses and also offers a great day out for all the family. With regular ladies days and family days, a visit to the racecourse is a must. The popularity of the course is such that it is preparing to host Royal Ascot in 2005.

If you want to get involved and feel the need for speed there’s a top karting venue right on York’s doorstep. Located at Monks Cross, close to the shopping outlet, F1 Racing Premier Karting [map] is one of the top karting venues in the region. Get your friends together and head there for karting fun with friendly staff on hand to ensure your safety. The venue is particularly appealing to large groups and stag and hen parties.

After whizzing around the circuit a few times you’ll be ready for some liquid refreshment and for this there’s a handy bar nearby from which to watch other races.

Just outside of York in Melbourne, which is close to Pocklington, is the York Dragway arena [map]. If you’ve never experienced drag racing before be prepared as it’s noisy, it’s rough, it’s sometimes dangerous but it’s also lots of fun. Watch races with names such as “Street Fighter Spectacular” and “Super Beetle Shootout” and ask yourself if the aim of the game is to win a race or to just create as many pile-ups as possible, either way it’s still a great spectator sport.
