There is the Oval Circuit which is 1.48 miles long and 18.3 metres wide, and is the only circuit of its kind in the UK. The second circuit is the International Super Sports Car Circuit which is 1.94 miles long and 11metres wide, and consists of long straights and high speed bends. Rockingham also has a wet handling facility where various road conditions are simulated in a controlled area which allows drivers to get a better understanding of vehicle control in different weather conditions.

Surrounding the tracks is the 6,280 seated building, the glass-fronted grandstand building, plus four other grandstands which makes Rockingham’s seating capacity close to 52,000.
