ePetition to save Mallory Park hits 20,000 signatures

A petition on the government's e-petitions website to save Mallory Park race circuit has attracted over 22,000 signatures in only two weeks. The circuit is under threat following a falling-out with local residents over noise from on-track activities at the Leicestershire track. Reports surfaced a few weeks ago that a sale had been agreed to a property developer, but the circuit has...

Only been to Mallory once, but, although its a bit small, its great for spectators and thats a big plus, so it would be a great shame if it closed. I've signed the petition, hope everyone and their mates follow suit.

Signed it,  getting everyone I know to do the same .

But I have a awful feeling that the deals already been done and we lose another part of our motorsport heritage. I hope I am so wrong.....

Petition

Really nice little track, with a testing layout and superb spectator viewing. Sadly, the facilities are very tired and in need of some major investment. Its ok for club meetings where the importance is in the taking part and the friendly atmosphere. However, at the major events espectations are higher and approaching a track via a rough farm roadway and the spectator car/bike parking in a poorly drained field do not bode well for the future.

? Like Brands & Croft (who suffer similar noise problems) who was there first ? . If the local 'residents' do not like it, why buy a property next to a race track!

I hope that participation prevails over profit.

Nowt So Queer As Folk !

It puzzles me why people would buy a property near to an established race circuit and then act all surprised because they can hear noise. Mallory has been hosting racing of one sort or another since the nineteen forties. Before that it was an airfield during WW2. By that reckoning the only residents entitled to object are those over seventy years of age.

I don't like noisy motorways so i don't live by then, I don't like noisy town centers so i don't live in them, common sense realy. The circuit is older than most of the residents any way.

Mallory fate

The complainants about the noise at Mallory should think long and hard about the alternative if it closes. If the track is forced to close, very soon it will become a derelict wasteground that will attract unregulated use by people on bikes, cars, 4 wheels drive vehicles and the like. It would be impossible to 'police' and to cordon off and would soon become an overgrown dumping ground, and an eyesore. If planning for houses was granted by the council,(and they managed to evict the travellers!) they will have months or years of disruption, additional traffic and noise from construction vehicles and plant, and when this was all over, have they not thought about the massive rise in traffic at ALL times of the year and not just at race meetings?
