Rockingham

OVERVIEW

Rockingham is Europe's fastest banked oval racing circuit, with the unbeaten lap record for the 1.5 mile oval set at 24.719 seconds by Tony Kanaan in his Ford/Lola Champ Car on 22nd September, 2001 – an average speed of 215.397mph! After almost ten years of planning and 23 months of construction work, Rockingham Motor Speedway came to life at noon on Monday 15th January 2001.

The international motorsport venue is the first purpose built race track in the UK since Brooklands in 1907 and has transformed the industrial wasteland left by the British Steel works into an asset that the people of Corby and Northamptonshire are justly proud of.

With 13 different layouts, the track has plenty of configurations on offer, although we use the International Long Circuit at 2.56 miles long. The circuit combines a long run from Gretton to Deane which includes the flat out Turn 4 and the very quick Turn 1 chicane. This layout also changes the profile of Pif Paf and introduces the double left-hander at Kirby.
