11599New Track #262 (Linda #116)
- May 1, 2007Managed to tick another one off thats been on the to do list for a while
Upper Eden Grass Track Banger Club (Bank Head) had been described to me as
not worth your 600 mile round trip ! So when a big Banger meeting in
Scotland, last Saturday, turned out to have a Bank Head meeting on the
Sunday, this appeared to be the perfect opportunity. By some of you guys
travelling standards this was a breeze but it turned out to be a very
enjoyable road trip in our recently acquired Ford Transit panel van, with
newly equipped sleeping facilities. Part trip took place on Friday evening
with the rest of the journey completed Sat morning to Cowdenbeath, Scotland.
A superb nights racing at Cowdie and back on the road to knock some miles
off towards northern England.
Our arrival at Bank Head, saw several friends with the same idea of visiting
the track en route home. Before us lay a smallish, egg-shaped grass track
oval, large tractor tyres and a dirt bank forming the safety fence. The
racing was a little rough around the edges with fairly small fields of cars,
non-contact Grasstrackers, semi contact Rookies and full contact Bangers.
Pretty good racing though at a fairly well run Club Track.
Only real downsides were an almost total lack of announcer, and the food
wagon having a permanent queue that moved very slowly. Nice afternoon and
another UK tracked attained.

You're right, the track is easily spotted and is a full quarter mile on
the inside. I think you meant 2 miles east of Freshwater though; 2 miles
south would put it in the English Channel.
