Used to be good craic when I went years ago with my dad who was a racer, prior to Nutts Corner the main Belfast stock car racing was at Dunmore greyhound track
Unfortunately local residents objected to the noise, and it moved to Nutts Corner. The entire stadium closed about 15 years ago.
Tempted now to visit the boxing day event...

I've become a bit of a fair weather follower. Think Boxing day would be too cold. The track that is having neighbour issues at the moment is Mildenhall in Suffolk. Open since 1975. A couple who moved in in 2006 have been to the Supreme Court and won re noise. The promoter is appealing against the decision. Tenuous link to runways is how close they are to a US Air Force Base.

Although not motorways, there are a number of emergency runways on highways in outback Australia for air ambulance (Royal Flying Doctor Service) use.

It was good publicity for both Warton and the NWRCU hence why they did it.
Orange police cars for motorway patrols were a Lancashire Constabulary specification in the early days, high visibility being deemed essential.
