A guide to the Oulton Park Circuit

Set in 320 acres of glorious pastoral Cheshire countryside, Oulton Park is under new ownership from Motor Sport Vision. The circuit has been extended over the years and boasts the distinction of having three circuits in one, namely Fosters Circuit (1.660mi/2.656km), Island Circuit (2.260mi/3.616km) and International Circuit (2.692mi/4.307km). Unusually, it is also able to seat spectators in beautiful undulating parkland within the perimeter of the circuit, providing unrivalled views of the action during race meetings and driving experiences.

The permanent road course is a lovely combination of fast sweeping corners, tight chicanes and reasonable straights with many changes in elevation. The International Circuit consists of a combination of nine turns, including esses and a chicane; while the Fosters Circuit has seven turns. The current lap record for the International Circuit is 1:24.680 and was set by Gareth Rees in 1996.

Oulton Park provides many exciting events from April to October, including British Superbikes, British Touring Cars, British Formula 3 and track days. Experience the thrill for yourself with racing, rally and early drive activities. Track days are available throughout the season and are an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to take their car or bike around the circuit.

Viewing around most of the circuit is superb, with positions on both the outfield and infield. The paddock is on the infield behind the start/finish line and access is usually very good with plenty of room, but it can be very busy on big meets. There is a restaurant and a bar on site, and there are plenty of food and toilet facilities available around the circuit.
