International Super Sportscar Circuit

  • Length 1.94 miles
  • Width 11 metres
  • Max Bank Angle 7 degrees (Turn 1)
  • Turns 12

Rockingham’s International Super Sportscar Circuit is used by the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship as well as for all other car race events at Rockingham.

The circuit combines long straights, sweeping high-speed bends including the infamous Turn 1 and Gracelands and a lower speed, highly technical infield layout.

Average lap speeds around the circuit range from 1m 24s in the BTCC to 1m 12s in British F3.

National Circuit

  • Length     1.7 miles
  • Width     11 metres
  • Max Bank Angle     N/A
  • Turns     9

The National Circuit is a firm favourite on both the car and bike track day calendar.

Whilst not using any of the Oval, at 1.7 miles the circuit provides a wide range of corners testing the technical ability of both drivers and riders.

There are some long straights with fast corners where road position is everything. In contast, the layout includes the tight Tarzan, a very difficult to master right hand hairpin.

Oval Circuit

  • Length 1.48 miles
  • Width 18.3 metres
  • Max Bank Angle 7 degrees
  • Turns 4

Rockingham’s 1.48 mile American-style banked oval circuit is unique in the UK and one of only two speedways in Europe.

With banking set at 7 degrees, the oval comprises four very distinct corners.

The oval lap record is held by Tony Kanaan in a Champ Car, lapping in 24.719s – an average speed of 215.397mph.

The circuit can also be converted to a road course layout for events by positioning temporary chicanes and curves both on the main area and apron of the circuit.

International Super Sportscar Long Circuit

  • Length 2.05 miles
  • Width 11 metres
  • Max Bank Angle 7 degrees (Turn 1)
  • Turns 13

Lake Circuit

  • Length 0.67 miles
  • Width 11 metres
  • Max Bank Angle N/A
  • Turns 5

The Lake circuit is a great trainer circuit which can be run in conjunction with the Handling and Oval configurations.

This tight and twisty layout may be short but still provides a challenge for both man and machine alike.

Handling Circuit

  • Length 0.97 miles
  • Width 11 metres
  • Max Bank Angle N/A
  • Turns 5
  • The Handling Circuit is an excellent option for training and shakedowns.

It can be run simultaneously with the banked Oval and Lake circuits to provide great flexibility for multi-circuit events.

It combines long straights and tight turns with the awesome Gracelands left hander.

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.
