Have your say

CADWELL Park has revealed a busy programme of major events for the 2011 motorsport season, featuring the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship’s annual ‘party in the park’ over August Bank Holiday, and a new two-day Historic Racing Festival during the Easter weekend.

The Lincolnshire circuit’s line-up includes an impressive programme of historic racing events, showcasing two and four-wheel machinery from the past eight decades. Kick-starting the season on Easter Sunday and Monday will be a new Historic Racing Festival courtesy of the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC), which includes track action from classic sports cars and saloons dating from the 1950s.

Cadwell Park will also celebrate even older vehicles with two vintage motorcycle meetings and the annual Vintage Sports Car Festival. These three events will see some of motorsport’s oldest working machinery driven in anger around the undulating 2.2-mile track, such as pre-war sports cars and 1930s bikes.

Motorcycle fans can enjoy a two-wheel adrenaline fix when the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship makes its annual pilgrimage to Lincolnshire for the ‘party in the park’ over August Bank Holiday weekend. This unmissable event is known for attracting impressive crowds, many of whom flock to Cadwell to witness the unique sight of riders becoming airborne as they tackle the circuit’s infamous Mountain corner.

Other calendar highlights include the annual British Superkart Grand Prix – one of only three Grands Prix to take place in the UK – and the Modified Live performance car festival, both of which will take place in July.
