Early gates opening – Saturday 22nd August

This Saturday sees the biggest fixture of our season at Newton Abbot Racecourse. In anticipation of the large crowds, alongside it being a Saturday and the Dawlish Air Show taking place on the same day, we will be opening gates earlier than usual to ensure that everyone can gain entry to the course in plenty of time ahead of the first race.

To help reduce queues on the day, we have decided to open the gates earlier than usual at 11:30am. If you are joining us on Saturday, please do try to get here as early as you can to ensure you don’t miss any of the racing action.

First Great Western will be putting on extra trains between Newton Abbot and Dawlish to cope with additional passengers expected to travel on Saturday. For more information on the train times, please see First Great Western’s guide here.
