All good things come to an end. Now those wonderfully cheap race meetings held by the V.S.C.C. are just another nostalgic memory.
After many years of support, I find it hard to see my enthusiasm described as “hoping to see an accident for five bob.” The only meeting I didn’t enjoy was when I did see one.
Doubling the car-park charge, ostensibly to discourage the morbid crowd had the opposite effect and resulted in a record attendance. How then can they justify the 5s. admission to the paddock as a means of relieving congestion ?
