Cadwell Park, dubbed the “mini-Nürburgring” for its unique challenges, celebrated its 85th birthday in 2019. The Lincolnshire track’s a firm favourite with motorcyclists and racing enthusiasts both.
Incredibly curvy and undulating, passing through open park and forest, Cadwell Park is one of the finest courses in the nation.
In 1953, the track was almost doubled to 1.3 miles for the inaugural automobile race. The circuit features three layouts: Woodlands, Club, and Full.
The track is also a regular on the Bennetts British Superbike Championship schedule, with its notorious 'Mountain' portion offering a unique challenge as bikes usually leave the ground completely. The yearly visit of the world's top domestic superbike category is one of Lincolnshire's major sports events of the year.
Increasingly, the track hosts club car events such as the famous Vintage Sports-Car Club Festival and the Historic Sports Car Club's Wolds Trophy, as well as classic and vintage motorcycle events and magnificent rallies.
Only club races are conducted now, but the track's narrow and twisting character makes for exciting racing. Cadwell Park should definitely be on your track day bucket list.
