Buxton Raceway
Buxton Raceway
Buxton Raceway LinkExternal link is a motor-racing circuit high on the limestone hills to the south of Buxton. The racetrack is used for stock car and banger racing. I suspect the remote location, on former MoD land, was chosen to avoid noise disturbance to residential areas. Racing started on a small scale in 1974 but the site now boasts a covered stand, licensed bar, shop and office.
