Clonmel Racecourse plays a vital role in the sporting, social and economic life of South Tipperary. With a dozen meetings every year attracting an average attendance of 2000 people, the racecourse is attracting upwards of 25,000 people in the locality every year. It also provides considerable local employment as well as giving the area a positive national profile.
The supporters club was formed in 1987 at a time when provincial race tracks were in danger of closure. Concerned local people formed their support group and began their campaign of raising local awareness of the wonderful amenity that is Powerstown Park and that by the very existence of the supporters club, it demonstrated to the then governing bodies that there was a commitment to the future of Powerstown Park by the people of Clonmel and its hinterland. Presently, membership is over 300 people. The current objective of the Supporters Club is to promote racing at Clonmel by obtaining additional sponsorship, increasing prize money and improving amenities and further encourage local interest and involvement.
