Cadwell Park winter works update: Chris Curve viewing bank

Thursday, February 06 2020

Work continues this week on an important extension of the tarmac paddock at Cadwell Park, part of a winter programme of investment that also includes resurfacing part of the circuit and improving various facilities around the venue.

Today marks eight years since the run-off was significantly changed at Chris Curve, with spectating at this part of the circuit unavailable since 6 February 2012. As part of the changes ahead of the 2020 season, we are delighted to announce the introduction of a spectator bank.

Venue Services Team Leader, Phil Waite said: "It's great that we've been able to re-introduce the Chris Curve viewing area. Some of our visitors won't have experienced the view from here, which is quite spectacular. This opens up a whole new area of the circuit to spectators, with some fantastic views of the action."

In addition, work continues to improve the disabled viewing facilities between Park Corner and Chris Curve, where there has traditionally been a wooden platform. The new viewing area doubles the available viewing area in height, width and length, measuring in at 40 metres long, and a metre high off the ground.

As Cadwell Park Circuit Manager, Paul Woodford explains, this will make a big difference to our disabled race fans: "Alongside other changes we've been making to the venue, we promised we would review the viewing facilities for our disabled guests, particularly on headline events like the British Superbike Championship, where vehicle access is restricted. In addition to the improvements to the paddock, being able to offer this vast new spectator area, which will be suitable for wheelchair users, I hope shows our commitment to improving the venue for everybody. 2020 is going to be a good year to be a race fan at Cadwell Park!"

Both viewing areas are planned to be fully open in time for the first race event of the season, the Classic Sports Car Club which visits the Lincolnshire Wolds circuit on the 18 April.
