MALLORY PARK IN CAR VIDEO & DIRECTIONS
MALLORY PARK TRACKDAY INFORMATION
CIRCUIT: Mallory Park, a 1.35 mile circuit in Leicestershire is small but packs a big punch with regard to track days. With few corners Mallory Park is easily learnt, but those corners are widely different, making it superb for track day beginners. Gerrards is fast, the Esses are a good change of direction and the Shaws Hairpin requires a skillful stop and acceleration area.
The most difficult corner for track day drivers has to be Gerrards; very fast, very long and with subtle bumps, Gerrards is one of those corners where you hold your breath. Gerrards actually makes up 20% of the whole length of Mallory Park.
HISTORY: In the late 40’s Mallory Park started out as a pony trotting ground, though when the club came into financial trouble the oval began to get utilised as a motocross track. The track was then purchased by Clive Wormleighton who turned Mallory Park into a road racing circuit.
Today the Mallory Park circuit is mostly used to host racing and track day events.
SUMMARY: Being short, Mallory Park is ideal for track day novices. It will be easily learnt, so that the driver can then purely concentrate on driving the car – not where the track goes next.
Mallory holds challenges for more experienced track day drivers too, you can always go a little quicker around Gerrards and carry more speed through the Esses....
