Since its beginnings in 1950, Oulton Park has been one of the most popular tracks in England. Sat in the village of Little Budworth, just outside Tarporley in Cheshire, it’s easy to see why it is held in such high regard.
The track can trace its history back to the manor house which stood on the grounds called Oulton Hall. That was the ancestral home of the Egerton family who were made Lords of the Manor by Henry VII. Sadly, the original manor was destroyed by fire in 1715 and a new one was created with formal parkland laid around it.
During WWII the area was taken over by the military, but is was completely bombed out all the was left was rubble and existing roads ways. Later, that would inspire the Mid-Cheshire Moto Club to open back up as a race circuit and thus, Oulton Park was born.
Plenty of work has happened since then and the early 2000’s saw a change of ownership and ultimately new investment into the circuit. Motorsports fans have flocked there in their thousands ever since and the British Touring Car event is one of best attended, while the Gold Cup has been restored to prominence with the track now regarded as the Goodwood Revival of the North.
