Testing Opportunities

Whether you’re competing, need additional time to prepare for a meeting, or just shake down.

We are the perfect venue for MSA and FIA competition licence holders to set-up and test their competition cars.

All days run on the 1.94 mile International Super Sportscar Circuit (ISSC) or 2.05 mile International Super Sportscar Long Circuit (ISSCL) as used for our race events and are spilt into open and closed-wheel sessions. Full safety and medical cover is included.

Regular general test days are held throughout the year at Rockingham, or for teams and drivers looking for something more discreet, exclusive dates are available upon request.

General Testing

Rockingham is the perfect venue for testing. Throughout the year general testing is available to approved licence holders driving race or rally prepared vehicles.

With 27 pit garages built to full international specification available, we provide plenty of space to work on cars, an Indianapolis-style cold pit lane for refuelling and a hot pit lane, fuel station and broadband wireless internet connection.
