The circuit was built on top of the former Cadwell Hall after being bought by Mansfield Wilkinson in 1927, who originally intended to use it for shooting competitions. However, his son Charles preferred motorcycles and began using the land for grass track affairs in 1934; by 1938, several of sections of track had been re-laid in concrete and the first true Cadwell circuit was born.
In 1951, plans were submitted to extend the course by adding a new loop which would bypass the Mountain Ascent before looping back. The changes were intended to attracting car racing, as it had only seen motorcycle racing till this point, with Formula 3 racers and were duly approved by local authorities. The extended track was gradually built by purchasing adjoining land throughout the 50s and by 1962, the first car-only events took place. By the 1980s, the likes of Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna had graced the track, and even the stars of motorcycle racing, such as Agostini and Hailwood, had already driven around the circuit during the 60s and 70s.
Cadwell was bought by MotorSport Vision (MSV) in 2004 and whilst its car racing is reserved for mainly Club competitions, it still remains a popular circuit for motorcycle racing. Since they took ownership, there has been a swathe of updates to the track, facilities and overall track day experience; one of the most notable is the new chicane. Designed strictly for bike races, it’s a tricky passage that adds yet another layer of difficulty to an already technically tasking track.
Cadwell Park is a sweeping circuit that offers plenty of challenge as well as a varied driving experience. With such a strong reputation and busy calendar, track day spaces are limited, so book early if you to seal your spot.
