Mallory Park has called upon its supporters to attend the Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council Meeting on Wednesday July 10.

Upon recent reviews, the council have advised the track to be limited to just 92 days per year, which would result in complete closure due to lack of financial viability.

In order to keep the local residents in mind Mallory Park had commissioned a noise expert to assess the level of noise produced by the park.

It has shut down motocross and drifting, and offered to change track days and times. The council ignored these compromises when proposing the change.

An independent report on the effect Mallory Park has on the local economy has also been overlooked. The assessment reported that the park brings in over £10 million and provides 145 jobs. The closure would therefore have a significant impact on the local community.

Mallory Park General Manager John Ward has stated “We need [the councillors] to understand we are working to reduce noise and improve life for residents and are committed to being good neighbours. Shutting the circuit is not the right choice.

"We need as many supporters as possible to join us on the 10th and make that point - Mallory Park is an important contributor and member of the local community."

The council meeting is a public event and will take place at 18.30 in the Council Chamber at:
