We've been on the hunt for our new 2019-20 cheltenham racecourse super fans
Throughout the 2018-19 season we celebrated our loyal racegoers through our ‘Super Fan’ campaign and we’ve been on the hunt again now!
Winners to be announced soon.
Have you driven overnight to make sure you don’t miss a Cheltenham race, slept in a train station or called in sick to be at one of Cheltenham Racecourse 16 racedays or maybe you’ve got the ultimate #Chelfie album, then you could be the Super Fan we have been looking for.
In September last year we searched, you applied and we found our four Super Fans, Becki, Nick, Ronald and Lynda!
Since then our four fans have experienced extraordinary moments throughout the 2018/2019 season, including:
- Private course walks
- Jockey meet and greets
- Behind the scenes tours
- Raceday tickets
- Hospitality on Ladies Day of The Festival
From being interviewed on ITV Racing as well as Racing TVs ‘Mark Your Card’, our four Super Fans have proved that Cheltenham Racecourse has the best of fans.
If this sounds like you, we want you to be able to share your love and passion with all our fans, so if you think you’ve got what it takes and think you are an ultimate fan all you need to do apply. Applications for our Cheltenham Racecourse Super Fans 2019/20 is now closed, applications will re-open April 2020.

Meet our 2018 / 19 Season Super Fans
34-year-old Maternity Care Assistant from Bristol
From planning annual leave for the whole year when fixtures are released to joining the Cheltenham roar straight from a night shift and making memories with her father. Becki isn’t sure what she would do without Cheltenham Racecourse in her life!
“The Cheltenham ‘roar’ on the first day of The Festival is such a buzz and has me coming back year after year making memories I will never forget.”
49-year-old Barber from Warwickshire
Having cut many racing personalities hair, including Cheltenham Gold Cup winning jockey Jim Culloty, Peter Scudamore, Graham Bradley, Olly McPhail and many more, Nick’s first visit to the course in 1983 was when he should have been at school and since that day he hasn’t missed a day of The Festival and never worked a day of his life whilst Festival week is on.
“I champion The Festival as the greatest sporting event this country has to offer and have talked many people into experiencing it for the first time who then go on to visit year after year. For all these reasons above I feel that I justify being a Cheltenham Races Super fan. I somehow always knew that my love of the races would be recognised.”
64-year-old Retired Woodworker from Manchester
Attending The Festival for the last 28 years, Ron has a collection of all the Members Badges and Racecards since 1988. Such a dedicated fan even his daughter’s wedding was arranged in 2013 to accommodate Gold Cup Day!
55-year-old from The Cotswolds
Not even cancer could keep Lynda away from her favourite week of the year. Diagnosed with breast cancer and following chemotherapy Lynda attended all four days of The Festival. Sadly halfway through The Festival, her hair started to fall out so supported by a family friend that evening Lynda proudly shaved her head and attended the final two days!
“Cheltenham Races is a passion, knowing the planning and preparation of the horses that are going to be running, watching the preparation of the course that leads to the spectacle of every race day and the excitement are only a part of what makes Cheltenham races and The Festival one of the best sporting events this country has to offer and I am proud to be able to attend whenever I can.”
