Welcome to Startrax Oval Racing

Enjoy the thrills of Short Circuit Motorsport with Startrax at one of the UK’s Premier and finest appointed Stadiums in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. However, for 2021 Startrax are planning a momentous addition to the sport as they look set to achieve the impossible dream of returning Oval racing to the awesome ampitheatre that is the Odsal Stadium in Bradford which last hosted motorsport in 1997. An iconic major stadium that is also planned to see a return for the legendary RFL team Bradford Bulls

Currently, Startrax are following Government advice and keeping all our racing family and friends 'safe' during the current and tragic pandemic that has affected all of us and loved ones and as a result, our 2020 calendar had been 'suspended' until further notice - But we will all come through this and when it is safer to do so we will once again resume with the 'Greatest Show on Earth! 

We will keep you up to date here on our website and on startrax facebook - well worth a read as updated daily with lots of nostalgia, trivia and catch ups . We are no slowly re opening - keep an eye out for our fixture programme and details as to when we resume - we will give you plenty of notice - until then please Keep safe!

For when we return, then get a flavour below. Feel free to give is a call!

Startrax have been promoting Short circuit motorsport for over a quarter of a century at some 15 different venues across the UK. With the closure of both Belle Vue [ after 21 years ] and Stoke [ after 24 years ] for 2020 due to redevelopment, we have been investing in Sheffield and now, Bradford, as part of the future and to ensure BriSCA racing in the North.

Startrax also in 2021 proudly hosts the Andrews Coaches BriSCA F1 Championship of the World and many other premier events.

Awesome family entertainment!
