“When the decision was taken to install floodlights at Southwell, we were determined to make sure that the technology was top of the range, and we’ve been delighted to work with Musco to deliver this system.”
— Mark Clayton
Since opening in 1850, Southwell Racecourse has been dedicated to implementing the newest technology. The racecourse has been recognized as the only track in the U.K. with a fibresand surface, as well as being one of just six all-weather tracks in Britain. With its most recent innovation, Southwell wanted to provide a new kind of experience for fans and riders by adding LED lighting for night racing. The historic venue partnered with Musco to usher in this new era of floodlit racing, becoming the first racecourse in Europe to feature LED lighting.
