Rockingham has 14 circuit configurations with each layout offering a different experience. From the flat out speed of the banked Oval, the technical tight turns and sweeping bends of the National or a combination of speed and handling found on the International circuits. Bespoke configurations can also be created and tailored around specific vehicle or event requirements.
Wet Grip Facility
The facility is based in the centre of the circuit at Rockingham, with separate access road from the main paddock.
There are two main surfaces, basalt tile (Mu Value of 0.1- ice) and the performance surface (Mu Value 0.6-wet leaves).
This is dependant on the vehicle and its weight but this is an approx. 35-40mph
Both the performance surface and the basalt tiles are limited to vehicles that are under two tonnes
The kick-plate limit for vehicles is also two tonnes
The wet grip sprinklers must not be operated at less than 5 degrees celsius to prevent the system from freezing
The layout is self draining so this does not need to be done during the winter months

I thoroughly enjoyed the track and enjoyed ample time in the car. It was extremely well run with a friendly and helpful atmosphere, I just wish all the track days I have visited were a little more like this!
I wanted to contact you to say what a great venue you have at Rockingham. The catering, the staff, the driving instruction, the circuit and facilities were all excellent. The refreshments provided on the track day were much appreciated as was the use of the pit lane garages. I have been highly recommending you to my friends and look forward to returning myself.
