Whilton Mill (International Circuit)
Whilton Locks, Daventry, Northampton NN11 2NH
Track length: 1200m | Opening times: 0900h - 2100h
Extended a few years ago to bring it up to racing standard the International track at Whilton Mill has added a new dimension to this popular venue. Much of the old track remains as part of the newer version but with some very interesting additions. If you have a large enough group it’s well worth a try.
As with the National track (of which it is part of) many weekends are fully booked a long time in advance so if you really must have a Saturday or Sunday race then plan well ahead.
Events listed are for groups of up to 20 drivers and are 'sprint' type races for individuals; longer TEAM events are available on request.
Exit the M1 North at junction 16 and take the A45 signposted towards Daventry. When you get to Weedon traffic lights turn right, northbound, up the A5 towards Rugby. Go along this road for about 3 miles and at the top of a hill turn right where it is signposted Whilton and Lt Brington. Go under the railway bridge, over the canal and then over the M1 before taking the third entrance on your left into Whilton Mill. The circuit is now on your right.
