Thurleigh Airfield Business Park
The Bedford Autodrome is a unique facility in Britain, as it was designed from scratch by ex-F1 driver, Dr. Jonathan Palmer, as a venue for corporate track days. The 384 acre site contains 4 circuits that can operate simultaneously and independently of each other. With huge grassy run off areas and few barriers, even novice drivers can play in near-total safety. The corporate track days run certain cars on the circuit that best suits it's charateristics; 4 separate groups of guests can be catered for, by rotating them from one part of the circuit to the next as each group takes their turn in one of the seven fabulous cars laid on for their delectation. The West circuit is also used by EVO Magazine for track testing, and a league table kept showing the lap time hierarchy of all the various cars they test. The MotorSportCircuitGuide Corvette Z06 was used by EVO for their Fast Club test in 2006, and with John Barker at the helm held the record for fastest GT car until the circuit was altered slightly in 2007 and the league table was reset. The current West Circuit record holder is the Caparo T1.
Bedford Autodrome is located about 10 miles north of Bedford and 20 miles East of Northampton.
The autodrome is on the A6, just north of where the A428 crosses it. The A428 links the A6 to the M1 to the west, and A1 to the east.
