Best Track Day venues in the UK
At Best Price Car Sales, we sell all types of used cars and used vans, in some cases, very fast and agile used cars. As we never encourage exceeding the UK’s speed limits, we can at least plant some seeds into track day venue ideas across the country, where you’re able to test out your driving skills and car limits to the max.
We have selected what we feel are the best tracks across the country for car track days. Check with the venues first for opening hours.
Bedford Autodrome GT
The Bedford Autodrome is designed specifically for fun and enjoyment and the circuit is great from novice drivers to Lewis Hamilton wannabes. All cars must pass the static noise limit test, just so they don’t cause noise pollution for residents and surrounding wildlife. The circuit has two designs, one called the Grand Turismo, which is approximately 4.1 miles long and the SEN Circuit which is approximately 2.3 miles long. Both are designed to be highly enjoyable and challenging in their own right.
Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit
Silverstone is probably one of the most famous racing circuits in the world. Originally built on an old military airport back in 1948. Through the years, this track has seen quite a few changes but can still be classed as a very challenging circuit. Car track days are open to anyone with a roadworthy vehicle. Before your car is allowed on the track, it will also be tested for noise limits. Before arriving at this venue, check for opening times.
Donington Park Track Days
Based in Castle Donington, Derby, Donington Park Circuit is a track split into two halves, one is a very technical series of sweeping bends, followed by short straights and then slow cornering. Then there’s the more serious track for the advanced driver to muster and is usually set up for National racing and Grand Prix. Another great track to test your car and driving ability to their limits. All cars must conform to the drive-by noise limit which is usually 98dB(A). Check opening times for this venue on their website.
Brands Hatch Track Days
Finally, we have selected one of the most charismatic circuits in the whole of the UK, Brands Hatch. Located in West Kingsdown, Kent. This track was originally used as a grasstrack racing circuit on simple farmland. Then it went on to host 12 British Grand Prix events between 1964 to 1986. Its design and set up make this one of the most challenging circuits in the UK and has proven to be very popular for track day events. Advisable to book in advance and to check online for opening hours. This track also adheres to the drive-by limit which is measured at 92dB(A).
