It’s December and that means only one thing! Ladbrokes Friday Night Lights each and every Friday!

Christmas has come early as restrictions continue to ease and we look forward to welcoming up to 500 patrons to The Valley to enjoy all the action trackside.

At this stage attendance is restricted to a select number of owners per race and MVRC Members who book one of a number of hospitality options available. Restrictions will ease further and we can’t wait to have everyone back at The Valley, but in the meantime, you can catch all the racing action on Racing.Com.
