Rockingham Comes to life..

After almost ten years of planning and 23 months of construction work, Rockingham Motor Speedway came to life at noon on Monday 15th January 2001.

The international motorsport venue is the first purpose built race track in the UK since Brooklands in 1907

Rockingham Speedway  has transformed the industrial wasteland left by the British Steel works into an asset that the people of Corby and Northamptonshire are justly proud of.
