Lydden Hill Race Circuit, Lydden

#772 of 1,618 in Things to do in Kent
Known as the friendly track, Lydden Hill Race Circuit was founded in 1955 by the late Bill Chesson and the Astra club.

Lydden Hill Race Circuit is the UK's shortest road racing circuit (many shorter oval tracks exist) at exactly one mile (1609 m).

The venue is superbly situated in an Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty and set with its own amphisphere, located in the beautiful village of Wootton about half-way between Canterbury and Dover in Kent.

It is mainly used for FIA, MSA and ACU events as well as trackdays, including rallycross, saloon and sports car racing and motorcycle racing. It may be only a mile long, but Lydden is a testing circuit, with many undulation changes.
