New operators have been announced for Leicestershire motor racing circuit Mallory Park, with well-known motorcycle personalities Stuart Hicken and Eddie Roberts forming Real Motorsport Limited to run the circuit on a day-to-day basis.

Former motorcycle racer Roberts owns British Superbike Series tyre-supplier Complog, while Hicken is the owner of the Buildbase BMW Motorrad UK British Superbike team.

The pair are now starting a programme of works to get the circuit into shape for the 2014 season, with plans to stage their first race meeting in the spring.

They commented: “This is a great day for us both. We have grown up with Mallory Park, firstly as spectators, then as competitors and now running businesses associated with the sport.

“We realise that there is a lot of bridge building to be done with the local community, but Mallory Park has been here for a long time and we are hopeful that – with understanding all round – it will have a long and successful future.

“We would like to thank circuit owner Chris Meek for giving us the opportunity of re-establishing Mallory Park and also Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council for advice regarding noise issues and the community”.

The news is the latest development in the on-going saga around Mallory Park, which saw the previous operating company go into administration after a series of problems associated with the contravening of agreed noise regulations.
