In 2015, John Surtees, 7 time Motorcycle World Champion and Ferrari Formula 1 World Champion, had the opportunity to take over ownership of Buckmore Park. Since then we've invested in upgrading all the facilities, both on and off track, and we're proud to be recognised as one of the most impressive and advanced karting circuits in the world.
Sadly John passed away in March 2017 leaving a rich motorsport legacy and a big vision for Buckmore. Every day we strive to realise his grand plans and we continue to deliver the excitement, the thrill and the emotion that he wanted to bring to everyone who visits us.
Since the change of ownership in 2015 we've made some big changes to Buckmore and invested in the future of the circuit. Below is a timeline of the development in recent time.
