CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION

Three Sister Circuit – 1.5km of outdoor racing being the North West’s most challenging outdoor race track and go kart circuit.  This well-established Motorsport facility offers a wide range of activities covering many types of Motorsport, for both novice and experienced drivers and bikers alike. 

Its name was created from three huge spoil heaps, referred to as the Three Sisters,which were a legacy of extensive coal mining at Garswood Hall Colliery. Begun in 1867, this was a ceaseless enterprise until 1958, nearly a century later. 

Notable motorsport celebrities associated with the circuit includes Neil Hodgson, who won the 2000 British Superbike Championship – his first win came in 1990 at the Three Sisters Circuit. The circuit was also one of five to be chosen to host the 2006 season for McLaren Mercedes’ Champions of the Future, a series aimed at creating an environment in which young, aspiring drivers from all backgrounds could excel. The class champions that year were Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton (Cadet), Andrew Delahunty (Yamaha), and German Touring Car champion Gary Paffett (Intercontinental).

Forty years on, the circuit still welcomes drivers of all ages and entry-levels for a range of Motorsport activities including drifting, Supermoto, Minimoto, ACU motorbike racing, car rallies and sprints, and karting for all ages.
