Martin Collins is to build its 20th polytrack racecourse.

Deauville in Normandy, France has chosen polytrack for its resurfacing project, which is due for completion in June. The French racing authority, France Galop, made the decision to use polytrack.

“This product benefits from a very good image within the racing industry and is reliable at all temperatures,” said Olivier Louit, director of the racecourse.

There are 46 race days a year at Deauville and a major Festival in August. The on-site training centre will also use the surface.

In 2008, Martin Collins was awarded a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Polytrack is Martin Collins’ premier waxed footing. There have been 5 installations of polytrack at UK racecourses, including Lingfield Park and Kempton Park.

Martin Collins is carrying out builds in 3 continents this spring. Due to this increase in demand, the company has taken over land at the Cotswold Airport in Gloucestershire for additional manufacturing and stockpiling of polytrack.
