Ascot’s £150m grandstand starts big pay out

With high fashion and hats hitting the Berkshire countryside for Royal Ascot this week, the racecourse’s investment in a £150m grandstand and new meeting and hospitality facilities is beginning to pay off, as it reports its best financial year in 10 years. Ascot is on course to beat 2014’s pre-tax profits of £3.1m, with revenues jumping from £46.6m to £68m. Revenues at the track soared 45%. The five-day Royal meeting accounts for 75% of the course’s revenues, of which a third comes from catering.
