    Default The Supercar Event 7th & 8th July 2018 - Rockingham Motor Speedway

    We are please to announce some very exciting news about next year's Supercar Event. It will be held on 7th and 8th July at Rockingham Motor Speedway.

    . Ok, a bit further for some, but we'd outgrown track & rides capacity at Dunsfold and they will be developing the site for houses fairly soon. We have had great times there since 2009 but we need to move on.
    Rockingham is a purpose built track with all the facilities already there. Closer parking, safer track, 10x better spectator viewing, decent shelter from the elements (for when Richards magic shirt fails), and gives us more fund-raising opportunities for The Children's Trust. Being right in the middle of the country also helps access for more people. Richard Malcolm, Mark plus The Children's Trust team look forward to seeing you in 2018, but a genuine and heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who's supported us already over the years.

    We will need all the spectators, volunteers and drivers we can get so please spread the word and let us know if you want attend or help in any way. It would be good to get a CS static display of cars together for those that don't want to drive at the event

    Hi Mal

    Wish you best with the event. Shame it conflicts with the British F1 GP and the Le Mans Classic which is where I will be.

    I will be there, and most likely in my i8

    Do the pit garages have power points? (To charge my car, like Brands has.)

    Default As a side question

    Developing Dunsfold for houses. Does that mean the Top Gear test track will go or are they just reducing the space (which is from memory is quite big)?

    This is an indirect answer: it seems unlikely that Gordon Murray is moving into the spare room of a new house at Dunsfold

    "brand-new facility for Gordon Murray Design at Dunsfold, Surrey"

    I think North of the runway will be business use retaining some hangers and South will be residential - no test track remaining
