          In 2012 we held our 40th Anniversary of racing. Starting out as Westend Raceway in 1972, the Club was started as a charity event for Endmoor Sports Club, raising 600. The Westmoorland Gazette, dated 7th April 1972, reported 'A chance remark to the Rev H.L. Cane, Vicar of Preston Patrick, led to a stock car racing meeting on Easter Sunday'. It goes on to say 'was a scene of great activity in the pits as Mrs P Bainbridge and Mrs G Waite booked in the 70' drivers and their gaily painted cars......The cars limited to 2000cc were all fitted with roll bars full safety harness and permitted reinforcement to protect the drivers and radiators' ending up with 'The Ladies Race was won (in Ted Branson's Cortina) by Miss Butty Hayhurst. Second was Dot Barnes and third Ada Robinson'. It proved so popular that it started becoming more regular, and after a brief spell at a farm permanently located to our current site, on a gravel track which, at the time, was still within a working quarry.


          Decades later we have usually well over 100 cars competing at each of our 18 race meetings in the season from all over the North West and sometimes further. We race on a purpose built tarmaced quarter mile short oval, which means you can see all the action no matter where you stand.
          We are a members club, i.e. non profit making, and invite members of the public to come and watch the intense action on the track. There is no need to book in advance, just turn up on the day. We have limited Free Track Side Parking and a Disabled only area that has a great view of the track from outside or inside the car, both these areas are on a first come basis and cannot be reserved.
          Racing usually lasts until 5pm, sometimes longer, we have a Track Shop, Toilets and Burger Vans etc. Though no seating is provided, people bring fold away garden chairs, or just wander around the outside of the track and in the pits, watching cars being repaired and chatting to the drivers. Its a great place to bring a camera too and not expensive at all.
