NORTHERN Racing, which owns Fontwell Park, has made racecourse manager Phil Bell the racecourse’s executive director.

Mr Bell, 45, has been general manager at the West Sussex track since 2002.

Earlier this year Fontwell Park was named Racecourse of the Year at an industry awards ceremony and last year a new £6.5m Premier Grandstand opened at the course.

Mr Bell will also become a non-executive director at Brighton Racecourse.
