Buxton Raceway, is situated in the beautiful Peak District, it boasts a 380 metre tarmac oval with steel plate fencing and a figure of 8 circuit.The circuit has many facilities for spectator comfort, including a covered stand, licensed bar and a limited amount of trackside parking is also available at most meetings (extra charge applies). We have a track shop that you can buy soft drinks from as well as stickers and the popular oval racing magazines etc. There are Oval racing merchandise stalls in regular attendance as well as our own superb range of Buxton Raceway Branded items, available at the Pit Office.Buxton Raceway, formerly known as ‘High Edge' started in the early seventies, after trying to get more info on this retired promoter Dave Pierce says: “Racing originally started at Buxton in 1974. I have tried to find out the exact date from George Mycock's widow but she is uncertain. All it was at first was a field with huge tyres around the outside and it has since obviously progressed to what it is today.”

Author's Review

It had been suggested to me that I take a look at Buxton Raceway. I did a bit of homework and took a trip over to Derbyshire to take a closer look. I was quite amazed by what I found. The site itself is located a few miles from the popular Spa town of Buxton, and is nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of Derbyshire; I must have said Wow! about 5 times along the way. At the raceway, they host many different types of events; with a whole multitude of different vehicles, 1300 Stock cars, Bangers, Hot Rods and F1 Stock cars are just a few examples of the many different types of races you can expect to find here. There has been a racing track on this site now since approximately 1974. This attraction is a fun family experience that cannot fail to get the female members of your family all revved up.
