Bayford Meadows, a British Championship venue and 1100m Motorsport UK licensed circuit set within a 12 acre site. The circuit was designed and built by owner Gerry Lilley, on what was previously wasteland behind the Eurolink Industrial Estate and first opened to the public in 1997.
The circuit is managed by Gerry’s daughter, Corinne Murphy and has a great team who work together with the aim of making every karting experience at Bayford Meadows an enjoyable one. The circuit features a fast and consistent asphalt racing surface, and is regularly enjoyed by both leisure karters and owner drivers.
The circuit lends itself nicely to the Sprint format and the rolling up laps are made easy by using the cut through at the back of the circuit that turns the circuit into one large oval. The location of the finish line prior to the pit lane entrance, means it is possible to finish a race and then come straight in the pits afterwards
There have been some great races at the circuit in previous years and it is one of those circuits where it is really difficult to break away from the pursuing pack once in the lead of the race. This ensures good close racing with lots of outbraking taking place into the 3 tight hairpins.
