It is known that this region staged Greyhound Racing at other venues other than the ones listed in the MAIN TRACK list, the reason mainly due to them staging just a handful of meetings on a temporary license which would have been issued by their local council and allowed betting on one particular designated site on 8 occasions per betting year. These were generally known as ‘Flip Meetings’ or ‘eight-day tracks’.
The list also includes venues that may have been a permanent venue with a betting license, yet limited information defies it from being amongst other permanent venues. If sufficient information is obtained, then the track will be transferred into the permanent section. I have to make it clear also that some venues obtained betting licenses but failed to stage meetings and therefore are not included in the listings.
