Welcome to Buxton Raceway, set in the heart of the beautiful Peak District just 3 miles from Buxton Town Centre just off the A53 Buxton to Leek road.
The track is a 380 metre tarmac oval with steel plate fencing
and a figure of 8 circuit.
circuit has many facilities for spectators,
including a covered stand, licenced bar and a limited
amount of trackside parking is also available at most
meetings (extra charge applies). We have a track shop
that you can buy soft drinks from as well as stickers and
the popular oval racing magazines etc. There are Oval
racing merchandise stalls in regular attendance as well
as our own superb range of Buxton Raceway Branded items -
available at the Pit Office.
Raceway, formerly known as 'High Edge' started in the
early seventies, after trying to get more info on this
retired promoter Dave Pierce says: "Racing originally
started at Buxton in 1974. I have tried to find out the
exact date from George Mycock's widow but she is
uncertain. All it was at first was a field with huge
tyres around the outside and it has since obviously
progressed to what it is today.", a lot of drivers who
remember the racing in those first years also date it to around 1972/3.
Raceway has good facilities for the spectator, we run our
own 'Domestic' Formulas, and we also have Travelling
Formulas on a regular basis too, please see the fixtures
page for a list of whats on, or use the Contact Us page
to request a fixture list via post.
We also feature Drifting Events,
a venture which has been quite successful and we have operated
Drifting now for a fewf years, our Drift events have seen some
of the drivers have success at a national level after cutting their
teeth at our track.
