Would love to see a new touring car circuit built at Elesmere Port, the more tracks in the North-West the better.

Cotswold model car club has to be one of the nices tracks ever!!! Really fast, smooth and challenging - perfect!! And they're a great bunch of guys down there aswell!

Its on an airfield so theres no limit on space and brilliant camping and toilet facilities.

Costwold

There was an overhead picture of the track but i cant find it!!

Ill post it when i do!!

there you go

Cotswolds from the air

I can vouch for Cotswolds, great facility.
West London is great too, dunno what it is about that place, but always have good racing there, seems to be numerous lines you can take
Plenty of good tracks over here in the UK

Costwold and Halifax are probably my two favourite tracks I've raced at. Would love to see a similar facility in the North West.

@ steggers

HI I helped plan and build the track you will need a bloody good digger driver we had one and it saved so much time. Have you looked at the pics on our web site this will give you a big insight to how and what you need to construct the track planning it through before you start will save so much time and money, If you need any help or have any Questions please feel free to pm me I will do my best to help you out. It also helped that being a construction manager for a large building company helps. (www.eecc.co.uk)

@ janisk

HI the tarmac that we laid was as follows first we had 45mm base coat which was 10mm stone and for the top coat we used 6mm SMA (stone mastic asphalt) hope that helps please feel free to pm me if you need any advice.

Glen.


By the way we had our first practice meeting today and 85 drivers turned up cant be bad looking farward to a god year for the club I didnt race but seeing all the people enjoying a track that I helped to build was worth every weekend that was spent push concrete around in wheel barrows.
