Chelmsford CRC January Racing Events to Kick of 2017


It’s a brand-new year and the month of January is upon us. While you may be thinking of resolutions or looking to cut back on all the food you ate last month, there is something you should be doing. And that is heading down to the racecourse at the start of the year.

What better way is there to kick off 2017 than a night of racing under the lights. Get your friends and family together for a night of laughter and fun!

We’ve got the dates that you need to keep free this month, check them out below.

All-Weather Racing | Thursday 5th January 2017



The first race of January is looking to be a good one and is the perfect way to start off the year. The gates will open in the afternoon at 3:45pm where you have a couple of hours to relax and catch up with friends after the holidays. The first race will take place at 5:45pm, taking you all the way to 8:15pm with 7 races in total.

All-Weather Racing | Thursday 12th January 2017


A week later we have the second race of January for you to entertain yourself with. There is no rule to say you can’t enjoy yourself even if you’re cutting back a little after Christmas. Gates will open in the late afternoon at 3:50pm, offering you the chance to finish work a little early. There will be 7 races, the first starting at 5:50pm and the last at 8:30pm. Head on down to the tracks for a bit of fun, but remember to wrap up warm!

All-Weather Racing | Thursday 19th January 2017



Finally, we have the last race of January. 3 races are just enough to ease you back in after the holidays and to set you up for the rest of the year. We’re back to late night racing under the lights with gates opening at 3:50pm. Treat yourself to a 7-race card, starting at 5:50pm and finishing at 9:00pm. What a way to spend a night!

Let’s Go Racing!
