Hi guys don't know if people are interested but they have a summer social event at Rockingham on the first Thursday of every month you can get on the track from 5 till 8 pm this is the last of the year and didn't know if any one else would be interested ?

The other reason I have put this up is that Rockingham has just been sold and I have heard that as of next year the track will be closed (potentialy for ever) so this may be one of your last opportunity to ever drive the track :( :o

Iv been to a few of thease and the people useing the track are all friendly and you get a great mix of cars and drivers don't worry if you have never been on a track it's perfect place to have a first go with a couple of sighting laps to start and tuition available if you want!

Cost is £85 for the track session and £10 for twenty minutes tuition (not a 100% it's 20 min)

If there is a few interested I could see if we could do group booking!
If it looks like jobby and smells like jobby it probably is jobby!

The development company that built the place went into administration 2 years ago. They lent money (£20m) to the racetrack operating company and now the parent company is going to be wound up, the loan would be repayable, which the racetrack operating company can't repay, so it's also been put into administration and not being sold as a going concern. This is all as of July this year (recent)

It doesn't say who the racetrack land has actually been sold to for sure (someone had previously bought the adjacent land and wants to develop it, but no announcement if it's the same lot that have now bought the track).

BTCC has removed Rockingham from the calendar as of next year due to the uncertainty of its future.

Also, I think I'm right in saying it was built as an oval with the squiggly bit in the middle as an addidition, but has never actually hosted an oval race
