GATES are to be installed to stop night-time car racing at the Peel Centre off Elm High Road, Wisbech.
The site which contains B&Q, Rainbow supermarket and AHF Furnishing, has become a magnet for racers in recent months.
The gates will be erected at the entrance roadway after complaints by nearby residents about the noise of car engines and squealing tyres.
Site owners Legal & General believe the gates are the only solution to the problem.

The rumours came after the "cheap and nasty" remarks by former Wisbech mayor Councillor Carol Cox about the no frills Lidl chain.
It was thought the cost and delays over the re-opening of the fire-damaged Rainbow store may have sparked the rumours. Rainbow has also been selling off other supermarket sites in Norfolk.
