Wiltshire

Wiltshire is a county in South West England that borders Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire and is home to the world famous Stonehenge. A venue in this region of the country is Thruxton, found in Andover, Hampshire. A wide variety of events are held at this location ranging from Karting, 4X4’s, Motorbikes, Supercars and single seaters. Thruxton is also one of the many locations in the country where you can complete an ARDS test to take the first step towards racing.

Wiltshire is also home to the Castle Combe Circuit, located approximately 20 miles from Bristol. Easily reached from the M4 motorway, Castle Combe is an ideal venue for anyone in the South West of the country. The Castle Combe Circuit is also easily accessible by train with Chippenham station being only 5.3 miles away. Castle Combe started off in 1941 as an airfield, home to RAF Castle Combe for 7 years before being decommissioned in 1948. The venue then re-opened as Castle Combe Circuit in 1950 just 18 months after the world famous Silverstone Circuit. The circuit was based on the perimeter of the old airfield and remained unchanged from the day it opened up until 1998 when two chicanes were added to the track for safety reasons. In 1997, prior to the changes to the track, a lap record was set by Nigel Greensall in his Tyrrell 022 – lapping the circuit at 130.93mph. Castle Combe have hosted a wide variety of different motorsport events over the years, with Formula 3 returning to the venue in 2001. However, this was to be short lived as a noise nuisance order was issued in 2005 meaning the venue had to reduce its noise level. With the British Formula 3 Championship and the British GT Championship exceeding these new limitations, it resulted in these events no longer being held at Castle Combe. Today, Castle Combe Circuit still host many different motorsport events ranging from championship racing to Classic car shows.

Wales

There are several venues in Wales, The original home of Welsh motorsport is Pembrey Circuit, found near the village of Pembrey in Carmarthenshire. This circuit hosted its first events back in 1981 and still hosts many events including cars, bikes, trucks and karts. Another great venue in Wales is Anglesey – a picturesque location on the west coast over-looking the Irish Sea and Snowdonia. The narrowest part of this circuit is 12 meters wide which makes this a superb track for cars, bikes and all abilities. The third main venue in Wales is the Llandow Circuit which is just 20 miles west of Cardiff. Llandow host a variety of events from Trackdays, Experience days and general Test days.

There is a large development in the pipeline – The Circuit of Wales, this Government and private funded project is for a race track and technology park and was originally scheduled to open in April 2016 but the project was put on hold whilst the Welsh Government are reviewing the planning application. Once complete, the venue will hope to host big events such as the MotoGP, Superbike World Championship, Motocross World Championship, British GT Championship, British Touring Car Championship and the World Touring Car Championship. This development would also bring in an estimated 750,000 visitors per year, create over 1,500 Training Places and add around £45,000,000 annually to the Welsh economy.

When residents of Wales attend a Premier Trackday event, a lot of people from the south will tend to travel to the Castle Combe Circuit in Chippenham, Wiltshire as it is easily reached via the M4 and if you continue down the M4 you would soon reach the Longcross Proving Ground in Chertsey, Surrey. Residents from central and northern Wales may find it easier to access a track in the Midlands such as Bruntingthorpe in Lutterworth, Leicestershire which is easily accessible from the M6 Motorway.
