Oulton Park undergoes winter upgrades ahead of new season

Monday, January 20 2020

Oulton Park is gearing up for the 2020 motorsport season with an extensive winter improvement programme comprising a number of changes around the venue.

On-track alterations include the installation of new concrete run-off at Old Hall and Lodge to improve safety for both cars and motorcycles.

Other tweaks to the circuit include extensive barrier renewal and improvements at Old Hall, Clay Hill, Shell and Druids, as well as kerb upgrades at Cascades, Knickerbrook and Lodge.

Away from the track itself the venue has undergone some off-circuit resurfacing, whilst the paddock toilet facilities have been upgraded.

In the longer term, the circuit will also begin work later this season on a new large campsite toilet and shower facility with an evening entertainment area.

Oulton Park Circuit Manager Jon Rush said: "I'm delighted that we've been able to begin this year with a number of positive changes to the venue. The run-off works at Old Hall and Lodge should decrease the number of cars we see spinning into the barriers at those locations, and will be an especially noticeable improvement for motorcycle riders. Aside from that, we've undertaken a number of other projects and we're also beginning to look further ahead with major improvements to the campsite for campers."
