Rockingham Motor Speedway’s future looks uncertain as the circuit last night released a statement admitting that there would be a ‘change of business operations’ following the sale of the Northanptonshire venue.
The statement read; “A sale of Rockingham Motor Speedway Ltd has now completed and as a result, there will be changes in business operations at the venue.
We would reassure all customers that these changes will not impact any aspect of events scheduled to run during 2018, nor the opportunity to stage further events this year. Until the end of the year, the Rockingham team will remain 100% committed to delivering the venue and associated services as professionally and proudly as ever before.
We thank you for your continued support and a further statement will follow shortly.”
Rockingham Speedway, the only circuit of it’s kind in the UK, opened in 2001 and twice hosted the British round of the CART (Indycar) championship, along with the British Touring Car, British Formula 3, and British GT championships.
Earlier this year the BTCC announced it’s 2019 calendar with Rockingham missing from the schedule, while the Corby track is also missing from the British GT ’19 schedule.
