    Survivor guide: Rockingham


    Survivor guide: Rockingham

    Opened in 2001, Northamptonshire racing circuit Rockingham is one of the newest circuits in the UK and the fastest banked oval circuit in Europe. Tony Kanaan, holder of the unbeaten 24.719 second 1.5-mile oval lap record (set on the 22nd of September 2001), for example, achieved his record by driving at an average speed of an unbelievable 215.397 mph.

    Circuits

    Rockingham has six circuits of varying lengths, numbers of corners and banking angles (including the banked American-style oval, which is one of just two European speedways and unique to the UK) and 13 different layout options. Races include two and four-wheeled motor and non-motor sport events.

    Facilities

    Rockingham facilities include a wet grip area, hospitality suites and event services; an all-weather showground; testing facilities and more. Experiences include driver training, corporate and personal driving experiences, and track days.

    Survival tips

    To make the most out of track days and avoid personal injuries by motoring accidents, keep the following tips in mind:

    • Arrive early; safety briefings are a must and, if you are late, will cut into your track time
    • Pay attention and follow safety instructions
    • Utilise all of the track, no need to stay on one side here
    • Get accustomed to using cones (clipping; turn-in and occasionally exit points) on the track, aiming to join them with fluid arcs, rather than straight lines
    • Avoid vehicle collisions by driving or riding smoothly and at your own pace
    • Do not let your speedo distract you, speed is irrelevant here
    • If you get tired, take a break
    • Drink plenty of fluids (non-caffeinated) and eat light
    • If you suspect problems with your car or bike, ask for help
    • In wet weather, avoid car or motorcycling accidents by taking turns in wide arcs, breaking in straight lines and accelerating gently

    Metal knee sliders are not permitted, so if you see sparks flying off a bike in front of you, the rider is grinding bits off his bike and may go down. Avoid causing accidental injuries by giving him a wide berth.

    Going home

    Remember where you are on your way home. You do not want to cause a road traffic accident by driving as though you were still on the track. If another driver causes a motorcycling or car accident on the track or on the road and you suffer an injury, you may be entitled to driver injury compensation.
