A STOCK car racing promoter has announced a bumper list of events at Odsal Stadium and it all kicks off in a matter of a months.

Startrax, which is run by Steve Rees, has overseen the transformation of the famous bowl over the past month, to pull together a vision that has been 23 years in the making.

Mr Rees was in charge when the last vehicles raced at Odsal, back in 1997.

That will all change on April 3 - depending on the pandemic - when the much-loved sport is set to make its official return to Bradford.

There were 2,000 tickets that went on sale for that first event - The BriSCA F1 Stock Cars - limited due to the coronavirus pandemic, and 140 VIP Club memberships guaranteeing the "best seats" over a five-year period were also released.
