Improvements made to Cadwell Park ahead of 2012 season

Wednesday, February 15 2012

Improvements are being made to the run-off at Chris Curve as part of Cadwell Park's winter maintenance programme. The area has been increased and in addition the surface has been levelled.

As one of the most demanding corners on the circuit, the changes will now ensure that a mistake will often be punished by no more than a loss of pride. Vehicles running wide are also more likely to be able to rejoin races, improving the action for spectators.

The changes will also benefit trackday enthusiasts, increasing their enjoyment of the corner, which is located in the open parkland section of the Lincolnshire circuit.

Circuit Manager Jon Rush explained the reasons behind the changes. "The work we're carrying out at Chris Curve is part of our ongoing commitment to safety at Cadwell Park," he said. "As well as creating a smoother and more level run-off area, the total area available has near-on doubled over the previous layout.  We've achieved this by relocating soil from the inside of the corner onto the outside, which has simultaneously improved sight lines through the whole corner down to the Gooseneck."

The first major event of the 2012 season at Cadwell Park is the HSCC Wolds Trophy meeting on 21-22 April. Tickets are available from £10, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information, call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
