Bumper Oulton Park 2017 events calendar unveiled

Friday, February 24 2017

Oulton Park circuit has announced its 2017 race event line-up, which includes national racing championships and family-friendly festivals, with action almost every weekend from March until November. Tickets for most events are now on sale from £10, with free admission to under-13s.

Major championships head to Cheshire

The calendar includes two visits from Britain's biggest racing series, the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship. The first will be over the May Bank Holiday weekend (20 April-1 May), with a return on 15-17 September, which will be the opening round of the title-deciding Showdown.

The UK's biggest car racing series, the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, will make a spring visit on 20/21 May. Oulton Park traditionally holds the championship's best-attended round, with many fans camping at the venue, creating a festival atmosphere.

The British GT and BRDC British F3 Championships combine for an early-season thriller at Easter (14, 15 & 17 April), featuring supercars and Formula 1 hopefuls.

Festival events for all ages

The Historic Gold Cup is the jewel in Oulton Park's crown, and a nostalgic highlight of the August Bank Holiday weekend (26-28 August). Stepping further back in time will be the Vintage Festival on 10 June, with a strong emphasis on early 20th century cars.

There are more festival style events, including Family Fun Day on Bank Holiday Monday 29 May, with fun fairs, market stalls and sideshows, whilst marque-themed events include VW Budburg, which celebrates classic VWs and campers on 6/7 May. There's the return of the Mini Festival on 19 August, and fans of high performance and modified cars will also be catered for with Tunerfest North on 22 July.

The season will end in spectacular style on Saturday 4 November, with the Neil Howard Stage Rally, which concludes with a big fireworks display.

In addition to these highlights, there's a wealth of club racing action, offering great value for money with admission to these from just £10, and under-13s go free to all events.

Visitors to Oulton Park will also notice that spectating opportunities have been enhanced, with new viewing areas at Britten's chicane on the International circuit, and at the challenging Druids corner, one of the toughest tests on the undulating Cheshire track.
