Scarborough MP Backs Oliver's Mount

Scarborough MP Backs Oliver's Mount

Scarborough MP Robert Goodwill has been having his say on the situation at Oliver's Mount.

It's after the council said last week it was looking for a new partner to run motorbike racing at the circuit.

Two events have been cancelled this year, due to governing body the Auto Cycling Union having concerns about safety at the track.

This morning we heard from the boss of the Auto 66 Club, Peter Hillaby, who says safety measures have been met.

But the council says that's not true.

Robert Goodwill MP, who's President of the Club, said:

"The ACU seem to have been moving the targets a little bit and I think it's been very frustrating for the Auto 66 Club.

But I do hope that, whoever run s the races there and hopefully it can be the Auto 66 Club, can get the investment needed to put in the safety measures - because if you take your family to watch the racing at Oliver's Mount, you need to be sure that the very best safety measures are in place."

You can hear more from Robert on the issue, as he speaks to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Karen Liu..
