Billed as ‘the fastest track in Europe’, the huge oval at Rockingham leaves a lasting impression on every visitor. One of the newest circuit developments in the country, Rockingham Motor Speedway was completed in 2001 and contains a number of possible track configurations, including the NASCAR style ‘oval’. The BTCC cars use a section of the oval before switching onto the infield to face a challenging sequence of tight hairpins and fast sweeping bends.
What really sets Rockingham apart is the viewing experience it offers to fans. Every ticket gives you access to the impressive grandstand, from which you can see every corner of the track.
