Rockingham is the newest circuit in the country, opening in 2001 as the first purpose built Oval track since Brooklands. It has several configurations but for our track days we primarily use the International which combines some of the Oval with a twistier infield section.
The National, which dispenses with the Oval sections is sometimes used. As you would expect from a purpose built facility, there is something for everyone with technical twisty bits, flowing corners and elevation changes. As an added point of interest, the circuit runs anticlockwise so gives a good chance to practice your left handers. The track itself is wide and smooth, and although maybe not endowed with the character of older circuits, its impressive facilities and riding enjoyment have cemented Rockingham firmly in the trackday calendar.
