Official Oliver's Mount Fund Raiser Launched
Saturday 19th June 2021
We know a lot of people want to help the rebuild effort though at this continued difficult time.
You can donate:
- With 0% commission PayPal payment to email@example.com as a FRIENDS/ FAMILY payment
- With 0% commission BACS transfer to the dedicated Co-op Bank donations account (Sort Code 08-92-50 Account Number 68809450)
- With approx 2% commission by scanning this PayPal QR code
- With approx 4.5% commission by PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org as a goods/service transaction
All donations will be published (anonymous donations are welcome too), held in a new ring-fenced account, and overseen by the 243 Road Racing Association Committee, who will decide what the funds will be spent on, and we will keep you all informed along the way. If we can partially fund a new building from these donations, we can name that building after this effort.
We have taken advice to make sure as much of your donations as possible go towards the rebuild effort rather than in crowdfunding commission charges.
Perhaps the best thing you can do to support us is to keep showing your support at each of our future events and spread the word amongst friends and family to make sure Oliver's Mount remains financially viable for years to come.

Oliver's Mount Racing - Director's Reorganisation
Thursday 8th October 2020
Mick Grant and Eddie Roberts, the founding Directors of Oliver’s Mount Racing Ltd., have taken the difficult decision to retire their positions at Oliver’s Mount, and have handed over the helm, to leave Andy Hayes as the sole director, soon to be joined by his wife, Wendy. Former TT racers Mick and Eddie initially negotiated with Scarborough Borough Council in September thru December 2018, which brought road racing back to the historic track. Without their passion, hard work, and enthusiasm, Oliver’s Mount would have been left in the history books. Thankfully, due to their hard work, and help from a never-ending list of volunteers, Oliver’s Mount has resurrected itself to its former glory.
It was an emotional decision for multiple TT winner Mick Grant, “Eddie and I are both extremely passionate about Oliver’s Mount, we enjoyed racing at the iconic circuit in the 70’s and 80’s. It seemed to be the right thing to do at the time to get racing back, we could not let the track fall into the history books like so many great tracks have. Eddie and I chatted with the council back in September 2018, and with mine and Eddie's experience, we were convinced we could bring the track back to life. I’m hugely proud of what we’ve achieved, especially during challenging times. We achieved what we set out to do, the track is alive again and now it’s time to hand over the reins”.
Eddie Roberts, who himself is a former race winner and lap record holder at Oliver’s Mount added, “Mick and I both raced in the 70’s, therefore, our race age is no secret, and although we are extremely passionate about Oliver’s Mount this was never going to be our long-term plan. When we took over, we had two priorities; firstly, to get Oliver’s Mount up and running whilst making the historic track as safe as possible for riders, spectators, and marshals. Secondly, our long-term plan was to discover a younger person or team to take over once the track was up and running. Andy Hayes has the same passion for the Mount as Mick and I and being a fair few years younger is the ideal person to take the helm. Andy and his wife Wendy are now sole directors of OMR Ltd.”
Eddie continued, “There are so many people to thank, without whom the dream of racing at the Mount again would never have come true. Our special thanks go out to Shaun Dalton and Hayley Colebrook. Together with a dedicated team, they formed 243 RRA and 1946 Marshalls Association. To all the Orange Army and 243 Committee members, we thank you. Scarborough Borough Council: Lisa Dixon and Stuart Clarke. Thank you for having faith and vision. Mark Jessup (Clerk of Course), Brett Moor (Deputy Clerk), Gary Thompson and Paul King (ACU) and all of the team in the “Tower”. Many other individuals, Cindy Challis, Val Henshaw, Carol Grant, Bry Bayes, Nige Race, James Corrigan, James Goodall, Robert and Maureen Goodwill MP, Adam Child, Tony Flinton, Peter Duke and all at Duke Marketing, and so many more. Thank you all. It has been an emotional roller coaster; Mick and I are very proud to see Oliver’s alive again to the sound of racing. Don’t worry we will still be in the paddock from time-to-time, we still love our racing. It only remains to wish Andy and Wendy every success.”
