Built into the natural contours of the Cheshire countryside, Oulton Park’s combination of stunning scenery and spectacular racing make it one of the most picturesque and best-loved circuits for spectators and competitors alike.
Over more than 60 years it has gathered a reputation as the country’s toughest test for both car and driver.
The venue remains as popular as ever with fans thanks to the superb views of the circuit from the extensive spectator banking. Crowds of up to 35,000 regularly visit the circuit for the annual round of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship. The Cheshire venue also hosts two rounds of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and the ever-popular British F3/GT event.
The circuit’s signature event is the Gold Cup meeting, which is now run as a historic event by the HSCC where some of the finest racing cars from the past 70 years roll back time and take to the track over the August Bank Holiday weekend. In recent years, the circuit’s calendar has expanded to include the Tunerfest North car show and the end-of-year fireworks and rally spectacular, while national level events for cars and bikes remain hugely characterful and varied.
Oulton Park is situated next to Little Budworth and is best accessed from the A54 and the A59.
