Point-to-Point racing at its best

Another season's racing is over at Andoversford, but with it comes sad news. Andoversford will cease racing in 2024 after over 45 years at the eponymous Cotswold track. Rising costs and risk have all played their part in the decision no longer to stage racing.

This web site will continue to function, providing you news from all the racing folk around the Cotswolds, however, and with news from the 17 other fixtures in the West Mercian region. The Cotswold Vale fixture previously staged at Andoversford is still seeking a new home.

A huge thank you is due to all our spectators who've supported our events, to our loyal sponsors and so mamy volunteers without whom this annual jamboree would never have seen the light of day. Give yourselves a hearty pat on the back.

You can also buy tickets for any Point-to-Point fixture direct from these pages, or if if you can't wait until the start of the season this November, you can purchase Gift Vouchers, offering entry to all 17 fixtures in the West Mercian Point-to-Point Area, stretching from Didmarton to Knutsford and from Chipping Campden to Ludlow. For the true enthusiast, or for those at a loss for Christmas gifts, try the Season Ticket, offering admission to all 17 fixtures for just £130.
