An advert printed in The Greyhound Owner shows that greyhound racing was staged on a temporary level in the hamlet of Carkeel near Saltash in Devon during the summer of 1993. Carkeel is situated five mile north west of Plymouth city centre, and the exact location of meetings still remains unknown. It shows that events were staged over a 325 yard straight course, with a drag lure being operated from a car. A wheel had been removed and a rope was tied around the rim. There was a refreshment tent and two bookmakers standing.

This GO advert is dated July 9th 1993.
