    I read a while back they said it would never be open to public racing due to the nature of its figure of 8 layout

                a few years ago SPARKY offered to drive the circuit to show Clarkson how to drive,but the offer was declined.Sparky teaches advanced and defensive driving techniques.

                      Sorry I should have phrased that better.

                      The track will never be open to "track days" as it wouldnt be possible to safely have more than 1 car on track at anytime due to the figure of 8 layout.

                      It is possible however to go on the track with an instructor present in your car , check this site :

                        It maybe a figure of 8 but you still go the same direction in the center section past the tyres so it would be like merging lanes.. at 120 mph..

                        Independent bespoke mapping available see my Facebook or find me at WG Motorworks
