Other Info:
The track opened on 2nd Sep 1984 and had an Olymprene surface. Coventry Godiva has its club house adjacent to the track. The track is operated by Warwick Sport (part of the University of Warwick on whose grounds the track is situated) who are eager to encourage causal use and also to provide a venue for events of whatever size. The track was resurfaced with a light blue Mondo surface sometime after 2012 and this and Stoke Mandeville are the only 2 outdoor Mondo tracks in the UK as of 2021.
