Epping Council stops North Weald Motorsport Drag Race

Epping Council stops North Weald Motorsport Drag Race

Allow motorsport drag race to continue on the airfield.

Why is this important?

The Motorsport Company has put on the Drag Race for 20 years held on the historical North Wealds airfield.. The event is well managed and only runs just once a month in the summer months.
These events are to be kept running as it keeps the community together and a great social experience. Not forgetting the financial support for the airfield.
After meetings and feed back from the villagers it has been positive untill 1 person complained and Epping Council have refused the licence .. We know for years property investors / companies have been trying to push the council for home building agreement.

Reasons for signing

  • I object to the fact that one person complaining about the noise means that a popular event that only occurs three times a year has to be cancelled, ruining it for everyone else!
  • If the event was a daily or weekly occurrence there would be more grounds to uphold, what seems to be a single complaint made against the event. The fact it only happens 3 times a year and that the organisers have made efforts to, and succeeded in, reducing the noise seems to have gone without merit. It is a shame.
  • Keeping racing on a track and off the roads should be a priority for any council. This is a well established venue which encourages and promotes the safe use of high performance vehicles in a controlled environment. Epping Council would do well to consider what resources it can deploy into promoting road safety when this event comes to them at no cost.
