Although we are less than a month from Christmas it is still possible (just!) to arrange a Christmas Party at Buckmore. We still have a few dates and times available, but you will need to call very soon. For small groups or individuals we have arranged a Christmas Special that makes a great staff or customer reward and a chance for you to celebrate with clients or prospective customers.
Friday the 20th December — 30 Min Solo Enduro, Full Christmas Dinner & a ‘Casino’!
Aimed at smaller to medium sized groups, this shared event offers all drivers the chance to qualify for a grid position, then race in a non-stop 30 minute test of endurance. Having worked up a fine thirst and a good appetite, the bar opens and a full Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings will be served. There will also be a chance to ‘gamble’ to win a prize on the roulette wheel and what’s more, you can’t lose because we will give you your stake ‘money’.
The cost is just £85 per head, including the meal. Spectators can simply opt for the meal at £15 a head.

Last month we launched our Loyalty Card. We have been delighted with the uptake and look forward to being able to reward our loyal drivers with a discount for racing at Buckmore.
If you haven’t already got your card, then do fill in an application form on your next visit and we will credit you with 500 points to get you started.
Then, each time you book you will earn valuable points. For example, an entry into the Man of Steel will earn you 600 points, while a standard priced 30 minute practice session will add 245 points to you total.
You can keep track of your points in the Members area
To get you started, we will load every new card issued with 500 points completely free of charge. Who says we never give anything away!
Once you have accrued a few points* you can use these to claim discounts against any further racing or practicing that you do. For example, 1000 points will earn you a £10 saving.
Keep your eyes open as we will be coming up with some extra ways to boost your points balance via email, the website and our Facebook/Twitter pages.
Register for your Buckmore Loyalty Card next time you visit and start saving
*Note: Application forms must be collected in person and cannot be posted out. The card will be available from the following visit. Your Loyalty Card account will be pre-loaded with 500 points. You must have a minimum balance of 1000 points to claim a discount. Points are valid for 12 months following your last spend. If you are a lover of small print, we have prepared some for you here.
We are delighted to announce that we can now offer Sky TV in the Clubhouse. This will allow us to show major sporting events and will enable us to expand our popular series of Grand Prix specials to more dates in 2014.
Maybe we should pin a ‘spoiler warning’ notice on the door!
We have now introduced an online live timing screen so that you can watch races from your own device, whether it is a smartphone, tablet or PC. It makes no difference whether you are trackside, or in Tanzania, as long as you can access the internet, you can watch what's happening on track – live.
Take a look at the screen here: Live timing Screen
