All Weather Racing At Southwell Races

Floodlight Investment

In 2019 Southwell went live with brand new LED floodlight technology. This industry-leading, patented control technology is some of the most advanced lighting technology of any racecourse in Europe. Highly customised to meet the needs of Southwell, it means the course has more flexibility with its fixtures (particularly in the all- weather season).

The All-Weather Championships, especially the £1 million Finals Day at Lingfield Park on Good Friday, are now an established part of the British Racing Calendar. While the All-Weather Championships were initially the idea of Arena Racing Company (ARC), everyone at ARC is enormously grateful to the support we have received from all in British Racing in helping ensure the All-Weather Championships have proved a success from the outset.
