What circuits / venues have you visited?

Post by kals » 9 years ago

We have all spoken about events, venues, places we've been to over the years so I thought we could compile a definitive list. This is not just limited to race circuits so hill climbs, rallies / rally stages can be included. You can post how many times you've been to that place, the years as well if you wish.

If this has been done before then please delete / merge this thread.

As members write their list I will compile all together in this first post.

Thanks for the latest entries, I've duly updated the member list and will update the venues list later on. The venues don't just have to be major places, you can also include venues which host grass roots racing like kart circuits (as Speedworx listed) or ovals that host speedway, stock cars, etc... the lists can also include drag strips like Santa Pod. However visiting your local indoor / outdoor kart circuit, like Gloucester Karting, is not something that be included on the list, whereas Buckmore Park and Birmingham Wheels can be included as they host national level karting championships.

cool list kals

apart from spa (2004, 2005, 2007), the Nurburgring (2009) and Monza (2008) I also went to Monaco in 2006.

Next to that a little bit more local

In 2005 I 'attended' (read spectated from the dunes) the motorcycle grand prix in Oostende (Belgium)

I have gone karting several times in Kortrijk, a place called 'Flanders Indoor Karting' (FIK)
