British Racing School

The British Racing School, a charitable trust, is one of two horseracing schools in the United Kingdom. Established in 1983, it is a purpose built training centre providing training for young people working in the horseracing industry on the outskirts of Newmarket, the headquarters of British horseracing. With extensive grounds and state of the art equipment it’s the premier training facility in the country.

 

Located adjacent to the Racing School is Peter O’Sullevan House, the Injured Jockeys Fund’s third rehabilitation and fitness centre in Newmarket, which opened on the 12th August 2019. This facility houses state-of-the-art rehabilitation and fitness facilities including physio treatment rooms and a hydrotherapy pool.

 

It is at Peter O’Sullevan House that Total Protection (Great Britain) Ltd were selected to complete the install of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing to the pathways and parking area of this prestigious location.

 

RG Carter Group specified Lunar as the blend to be applied and provide a decorative, low maintenance, hard-wearing surface dressing which is also wheelchair friendly.

 

Total Protection operatives installed the resin bound paving system at 15mm depth over 737m² and 18mm over 667m².

 

All parties concerned were extremely proud of the resulting appearance.
