CADWELL PARK SET FOR MAJOR WINTER WORKS AHEAD OF 2020 SEASON
Cadwell Park will be better than ever before by the time competitive circuit racing returns for 2020, with a number of winter developments ongoing and scheduled over the coming weeks.
Amongst the most significant of these is the addition of more tarmac in the paddock. This will expand the amount of hard standing in the area above the current tarmac area at the bottom end of the paddock. This work will be carried out following the Cadwell Park Stage Rally on Sunday 2 February and will increase the amount of tarmac paddock area by more than 3000 square meters, effectively doubling the paddock space available to race clubs.
The paddock office next to the scrutineering bay, home to race admin during events, will also be replaced to complete the off-season overhaul.
As for the circuit itself, a number of tweaks are being made including resurfacing work at the chicane. The Armco barriers at Hall Bends and on the start/finish straight are also being re-profiled to increase the effectiveness of the run-off areas.
Cadwell Park Circuit Manager Paul Woodford said: “We’ve got some really exciting developments taking place during the off-season – the addition of fresh tarmac areas in our paddock will come as particularly welcome news to our competitors this year. With the other alterations we’re making, the venue will be better than it’s ever been when the race season starts with the Classic Sports Car Club in April.”
Cadwell Park is set for a busy 2020 season with the major highlight being the annual Bennetts British Superbike Championship round on 21-23 August. Other events to look forward to will include the International Sidecar Revival earlier that month and a wide range of club-level and historic events on both two and four wheels.
