Other Info:
The track was built in 1981 but is in a poor condition and so is not open to the general public. Competitions are thus no longer held here. A lottery bid was prepared for early 2000 to include resurfacing and revamping the track but this was turned down. A similar lottery bid in 1997 was also turned down.
