My understanding is that Great Leighs are paying out that amount. The other AW tracks certainly aren’t that keen on taking these fixtures at short notice, because they can’t find sponsors or sell the corporate or restaurant facilities. So they don’t make any money from them.
The penalty is imposed by the BHB and was part of the open bidding process for fixtures that was introduced after the OFT investigation. Great Leighs knew the rules when they stated they would be ready to open in October 2006.
