Rumours it will shut down in September and be sold for housing.

Sad day.

It has been sold. The new owners have said that they will meet all 2018 commitments. No idea after that.

I like it. The facilities are excellent. It's ideal for the under 1 litre sized sportsbikes and has the best series of left handers I can think off.

Its not a great circuit for spectators , the racing has always been good though and loads of parking space and easy to get to .

It's a shame this has happened but better to sell it off than for it to be left rotting. I wonder if the street names will be reflective of the track corner names?!
