incanton Racecourse hosts its first day of racing on Saturday with Bathwick Tyres Day.

Gates at the racecourse, south of Bruton off the B3081, open at 11am with the first race at 1pm. The last race is due off at 3.50pm.

As well as the racecard competition there will be trade stands and other activities.

Admission to the grandstand enclosure is £12 in advance, or £14 on the day, while entrance is free for children under 17.

The month is rounded off with Thursday meetings on January 17 and 31.

Organisers say that anyone new to racing should bear in mind that clothing and footwear should be warm and comfortable as visitors are likely to be walking around, and probably standing, outside on the course for long periods.
