Opened in 1959, the now-Shenington circuit used to be called Banbury Kart Club and saw Nigel Mansell as a regular on-track.

“‘Sheny’, as it is affectionately known, is considered on of Britain’s premier circuit, regularly holding major championship meetings.  Many now-famous drivers have raced at the circuit, Nigel Mansell, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Anthony Davidson, Guy Smith, Paul Di Resta and Johnny Herbert.”

A cafe will be available (times TBC), see the menu beforehand. Stay on site with a camper van or caravan, or see nearby accommodation.

Take in the history nearby with a visit to Broughton Castle or for something more interactive, try out the Waterfowl Sanctuary and Children’s Farm. If you manage to leave the kids with a friend for the evening, parents can take up Castle Gin School for an unusual activity.
