Golding Barn Raceway News...

Having had time (LOTS OF TIME!) to look at what we do here at Golding Barn and assess the whole set-up, we have decided that WE WILL NOT RE-OPEN AS A REGULAR PRACTICE TRACK OR PRIVATE HIRE VENUE IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

The circuit will remain in regular use by Barry Johnson and his KTM mx Experience days and in time we will look at running random events/practice days.

We would very much like to thank everyone that has used our practice facility during the last 20 years and especially those who have used it regularly. It has been a pleasure meeting many nice people and making new friends along the way.

I'm sure this will come as a shock to many, but if you are interested I will explain a little more the reasons for this decision;

Firstly, we have put in a solid 20 year commitment to opening on a regular basis which in itself is a huge tie and takes it's toll.
Secondly, with the weather generally becoming more extreme, in the South East especially, we find ourselves having to cancel more and more days due to the track being un-rideable because of the wet weather followed quickly by running out of water to keep the dust down. The hard packed ground type here doesn't work well without a proper water source which we don't have unfortunately. We had a borehole drilled some years ago at a large expense only to find it would not yield enough water to help our cause.
So we feel we will now just look at providing quality rather than quantity events as and when we decide the time is right.

For now, thankyou again and we will keep everyone informed of any future events as or when they materialise...

Information update:

Lots of people asking the question!

Sorry, at this point we remain CLOSED. It is not possible to open the track without very much ‘bending’ or ‘ignoring’ many important rules to the current situation which, in our opinion, is not right.
As and when we can open safely at some level we will certainly be letting everyone know.

Thankyou for your patience and understanding.

17/03/2020

The circuit will be Closed until further notice due to Corona virus restrictions.

We will watch the developments along with everyone else and open when it is right to do so.

Not the 2020 any of us were hoping for. We hope to see you all as soon as it’s possible.

Thankyou...

14/03/2020

The circuit is OPEN for practice Sunday 15th March.

*PLEASE REMEMBER - NO TEAR OFFS*

Weather looks to be ok until at least 2pm so we've got to give it a go at last!

Please bear in mind it is still a busy time at practice tracks. We hope very much numbers wont be an issue but we must remind everyone that if groups fill up we have no choice but to turn riders away.
Riders must be present at signing on to obtain a wrist band. Strictly first come, first served, Thankyou.

We all have plenty of information regarding Corona virus, so please use your common sense with hygiene and human contact.

Sorry all, I cant believe our timing with the weather! More rain due through the early hours of Sunday morning is enough to ruin our chances again this week!

The track is CLOSED Sunday 8th March.

Maybe next Sunday 15th.

Thankyou...

02/03/2020

Next scheduled practice day is Sunday 8th March.

I finally feel we might just have half a chance this week! I’ll keep you posted...

Thankyou...

27/02/2020

The circuit will remain CLOSED this Sunday 1st March.

Too much water everywhere!!!

We'll try again next week for Sunday 8th March.

Thankyou...

22/02/2020

Sorry, the circuit will remain CLOSED this Sunday 23rd February.

The weather just isn’t giving us the chance. The ground itself is much closer to being useable but we still need a half decent day of weather on the day which we’re not forecasted with again this week.

We’ll try again next Sunday.

Thankyou...

17/02/2020

Next scheduled practice day is Sunday 23rd February.

Let's see what the weather gives us this week!!

More information on Saturday.

Thankyou...

14/02/2020

Last week, Storm Ciara...
This week, Storm Dennis...

When Ellen, Francis and Gerda turn up, i hope they at least have the decency to stay away from the weekends!!!

No practice day this Sunday 16th.
Let's see what Sunday 23rd brings.

Thankyou...

11/02/2020

Our next scheduled practice day is Sunday 16th February. However, it doesn't look like the weather is going to allow it to happen again if forecasts are correct!!

More information on Saturday.

Thankyou...

07/02/2020

Another one bites the dust!! (well mud actually!)
We'll blame it on Storm Ciara this week.

Seriously high winds and rain due all day on Sunday, so no go for Sunday 9th February.

We'll have a look again for Sunday 16th.

Thankyou...

04/02/2020

Our next scheduled practice day is Sunday 9th February. Long range forecast for Sunday looks bad right now but we will see how it turns out and give more information on Saturday.

Thankyou...

31/01/2020

Sorry, the circuit will remain CLOSED this Sunday 2nd February.

We’ll try again next Sunday.

Thankyou...

27/01/2020

Next scheduled practice day is Sunday 2nd February, depending on what the weather does for us as always.

More information on Saturday.

Thankyou...

23/01/2020

Sorry, the circuit will remain CLOSED this Sunday 26th January.

With the icy conditions we have had, the track and carpark have not repaired and settled from our last opening. Sunday's weather looks like being wet at times and with a wet forecast for early next week we need to just wait it out and let the track settle.

We will see how things develop for next Sunday 2nd February.

Thankyou...

21/01/2020

Our next scheduled practice day is Sunday 26th January.
This will again depend heavily on the conditions nearer the time.

More information on Saturday.

Thankyou...

15/01/2020

Sorry, the circuit is CLOSED again this Sunday 19th January.

We will see what happens next week and look at the possibility of Sunday 26th January.

Thankyou...

13/01/2020

Next scheduled practice day is Sunday 19th January. Got to say the weather's not being too helpful right now though!

We will see what comes and see how the track is near the end of the week and keep you posted on the chances.

Thankyou...

11/01/2020

Sorry, the circuit is CLOSED this Sunday 12th January.

The rain that is due in the early hours of Sunday morning will be enough to mess up our chances of a decent day.

We will try again for next Sunday 19th January.

Thankyou...

10/01/2020

Next scheduled practice day is Sunday 12th January. However, we are still unsure if this will be possible as yet. More info Saturday.

Thankyou...

05/01/2020

A tough day today! That rain wasn't forecast and ruined a potentially great day.
Thankyou to all who came and had a good go and took it for what it was.
Sorry to all those we had to turn away and again thankyou for taking the bad news so well, a credit to yourselves (and you may have been the lucky ones the way the conditions turned out!!)

We have obviously had a decent day with such a good turnout of riders, thankyou, but it's sure going to take some fixing now!! I would not have opened if we had knowledge of the weather that was coming.

Sunday the 12th is the next scheduled practice day. I very much have my doubts that will be possible but we will keep you posted with progress.

Thankyou...

05/01/2020

Sorry, all adult groups are full!!

With Track and Car Park thoroughly waterlogged we will now remain CLOSED until the New Year and let the track settle for a few weeks.

We would like to wish all our customers and friends a very Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you as early in the New Year as possible.
