Rockingham track days: info, circuit maps and driving tips

Rockingham offers a unique experience for drivers – including a banked high-speed oval and technical infield

Rockingham Motor Speedway is one of the UK’s newest motorsport venues, and hosts the usual mixture of track days, vehicle events, driving experiences and training and motor racing. Rockingham claims to be the fastest circuit in Europe.

Rockingham has 13 possible configurations, though the one used most often is the International Super Sportscar Circuit – marked out from other UK circuits by its fast and challenging turn 1 (including 7-degree banking) and technical infield.

It’s a circuit with plenty to challenge even a skilled driver, which is why it’s one of the venues for evo’s track evenings in 2017. If you’re coming along to watch, Rockingham’s grandstand is enormous and offers a great view of the entire track – great for spectators. There’s a further spectator viewing area on top of the pit garages.
