Very well organised, all staff welcoming and informative, social distancing no problem. The track is quickly cleared after each race and the next one starts. What an enjoyable entertaining day.

My partner and I were on a weekend break and found this on trip advisor and thought we'd give it a go. We went to the stock car/F2 on 6th Oct and was blown away, was the highlight of our trip!
Loads of free parking, chilly day kept warm with a nice cuppa tea and a burger onsite. The races were fantastic, everyone was friendly and it's appropriate for all ages, even some canine fans there.
Definitely get your money's worth. Cannot wait to visit again!

The race circuit is in a stunning location and although I had anticipated long traffic queues before and after the event; there was no issue with traffic in the slightest. The expected rain came but there was plenty of room in the grandstand. However, on realising we could have parked overlooking the track for six quid, we brought the car in, reversed up to the fence and had a fantastic view of the races from the hatchback. It's really good to be able to get so close to the track whether by car or on foot. We managed without the need to bring pack lunches etc; adequate facilities on site and toilets. We are relatively newcomers to the sport but a 2yr old and 5yr old absolutely love it. The staff and volunteers do a fantastic job in making people feel welcomed and safe. We look forward to coming here again and fully recommend others to try it. Thankyou Buxton Raceway (visitors from St Helens)

Racing was good but the organisation of the races was poor the time taken to restart race meant the meeting ran on till midnight incidents requiring medical attention were handled really well Sunday ran a bit better the whole place was however friendly with helpful people

thankyou for your review sadly, we cannot control the amount of time it takes to deal with stoppages, especially if a driver is injured and cannot get out of the car easily, due to the time ticking away we could have cancelled races but that isnt something we do willy nilly like other tracks, in hindsight we probably had one formula too many that night but we cant turn back time, we all just have to move on. you are right, buxton raceway is a friendly place, and our staff are among the the best, if not the best in the country. we hope that you return some time, your attendance is valued.

Thankyou John L for your 5 bubble review of Buxton Raceway. The caravan racing and the bus/coach racing are a couple of our most popular events, there is something of interest for any motorsport fan at this venue, from Drifting, to Stockcar and Banger Racing. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit and we hope you will return soon.
