Rockingham - Europe's fastest racing circuit


Rockingham is Europe's fastest banked oval racing circuit, with the unbeaten lap record for the 1.5 mile oval set at 24.719 seconds by Tony Kanaan in his Ford/Lola Champ Car on 22nd September, 2001 - an average speed of 215.397mph!

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 and 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.
