Grass Track Racing

Hey all,

Just putting my feelers out there...

I'm looking for some info on starting a grass track league. Is there a good resource out there online? I'm looking for info on regulations, track size and maintenance of the track. Possibly a British club over the pond that would be looking to give some good pointers. Let me know! I'm looking for as much information as possible. Thanks!

Here's a link to a pdf facilities document published by Sport England a few years ago, it includes the basic format for a grass track:
Sport England Document
The rules for grass track racing don't differ much from those for hard track racing. The most significant difference is the lack of sprinters and stayers lines on a grass track.
If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask.
