Mallory Park in Leicestershire is well-known as a racing circuit. And a favourite experience for visitors is to attend one of the frequent track events where you’ll be taught by a professional racing driver how to handle a supercar around the 1.35-mile track. That’s pretty exciting stuff.
If high-performance driving isn’t for you then there are plenty of racing events that you can enjoy as a spectator. Find out about upcoming events at the Mallory Park website.
A special treat at this circuit, one that isn’t very well known, is the presence of several special statues at the circuit. These statues represent men who have been special to the circuit and to motorsport itself.
The statues are located on the perimeter of the circuit and therefore just outside – so they can be viewed free of charge without paying to enter.
This is the most recent – Adrian Newey is acknowledged to be the F1 designer who has created more championship-winning cars than any other engineer.
See the other statues below: They are:
- Jim Clark, Formula One driver
- Mike Hailwood, professional motorcycle racer and racing driver.
- Colin Chapman, design engineer, inventor, and builder in the automotive industry, and founder of Lotus Cars
- Roger Clark, British rally driver during the 1960s and ’70s, and the first competitor from his country to win a World Rally Championship
- John Surtees, British Grand Prix motorcycle road racer and Formula One driver
- Stirling Moss, British Formula One racing driver and inductee into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame
All the statues were created by sculptor David Annard
