The facilities have definitely improved over the years.When I looked at these old photos,I couldn't believe how much the place has changed.I've been going there since 1980 and I suppose that something improves every year,but you don't notice the changes until you see how it used to be.
Yes I was impressed with the cafe/clubhouse, and the Tarmac paddock, the last time i,d seen the place prior to last year was 1983 when the paddock was still coal dust, the toilets were portaloos and the catering was a burger van.
A fantastic little circuit, friendly organisers, and it's great to see its survived and developed over the years,
When I get chance I'll see if I can find any photo's from the early 1980's, I'm sure I've got a couple somewhere.
Other handy lads from that era who you may remember, Ian Shacklady, Dave Marsh, Dave Dearden, all local lads I think, I knew Ian quite well, I think he lived in Skelmersdale.
And didn't Foggy and/or Hodgson make their racing debuts there a couple of years later?
