The independent track at Gretna is based at Halcrow with reference 3° 4' W 54° 59' N. It opened for business in 1986 and is a well run family track, run by James Norman. The original track in Gretna was around the perimeter of the local Football Club at Raydale Park, but that closed in 1985.  It was in 1986 that the Halcrow track opened for business.
