Belle Vue Speedway

Building:

The Aces moved to a new purpose-built stadium in Gorton in 2016, which will also serve as the national stadium for British speedway. The Stadium holds up to 400 delegates (theatre) 300 guests (banquet). 

Brief:

Key to the club operating as a more cost-effective business is the installation of a range of lighting controls from CP Electronics, which will provide greater energy efficiency for the club during race nights.

Solution:

CP’s fully addressable RAPID lighting control system in the stadium’s upstairs rooms, notably its large banqueting suite, alongside the EBR-4SC scene plate, while standalone passive infrared (PIR) presence detectors were used for areas including washroom facilities, changing rooms, storeroom areas and kiosks. For the lower floors of Belle Vue Aces’ new stadium, CP’s push-button GESM surface-mounted PIR has been installed to deliver easy on/off switching at lux level. 

Fact:

As part of its £8million new stadium build and the creation of a brand-new race track, Belle Vue Aces has also invested in new technologies to deliver greater energy efficiency and monitored usage in its banqueting suite, storeroom facilities, washrooms, amongst other areas.
