It looks like Council taxpayers will get a boost from those parking locally at the Rod Stewart concert which is being held on the Knavesmire on Saturday 1st June.
The Council will get the profits from car parking as the event falls outside the terms of the existing Racecourse lease.
Rod Stewart holds the official record attendance for a (free) outdoor concert. 3.5 million attended his gig at Copacabana beach in Rio a few years ago.
Rather fewer are expected to make their way to the Knavesmire in June
