Where is it?
Oulton Park Circuit is a motor racing track close to the small village of Little Budworth, Cheshire, England. It is about 5 miles from Winsford, 13 miles from Chester city centre, 8 miles from Northwich and 17 miles from Warrington, with a nearby rail connection along the Mid-Cheshire Line. The cities of Liverpool and Manchester are also within an hours drive so great opportunity to make a weekend of it.

Keep to the right as you take on the track, covering the full 4.3km loop of the track and ensuring you keep plenty in the legs for the uphill drag.
The course is broken into laps based on the distance, there are lap boards giving you approx distance and lap counting. We will have lap counting in place to check you have done enough but not to tell you how many you have left.
There is a water station at the end of the Lap straight near the pits, this means you will pass it on every lap. Please be considerate when dropping cups or pick up a re-usable carry cup at registration for £2.50
As you can see the course is not flat but gives a good experience of hills and nice downhills, clean air and no cars to deal with along with being able to use the full width of the International Track.
