Exit the M1 North at junction 16 and take the A45 signposted towards Daventry. When you get to Weedon traffic lights turn right (which is north) up the A5 towards Rugby. Go along this road for about 3 miles and at the top of a hill turn right where it is signposted Whilton and Lt Brington. Go under the railway, over the canal and then over the M1 before taking the third entrance on your left into Whilton Mill. The circuit is now on your right.
This web page is intended as a guide to the Whilton Mill circuit that was first used by CLUB 100 in 2001 for the Sprint race and a test day.
The track has extensive banking that makes a great vantage point for spectators to view all the circuit and see all the racing.
The pit lane starts at “The Boot” corner and follows the outside radius of the circuit via a single lane bordered by tyre stack, before opening up into a lovely wide pit lane running parallel with the main straight. The exit to the pits comes out onto the main straight, but not on the racing line, unless someone is trying to overtake on the inside into the first corner called Crook. As always, great care should be taken when leaving the pit lane and a cursory check to the right will ensure that you don’t pull out into the path of oncoming Karts!
There is a very nice Cafeteria (in a nice new brick building) with changing rooms as well. CLUB 100 has arranged for both facilities to be available on both test and race days.
In conjunction with the excellent reports written below, we suggest that you attend the track walks that take place in the morning of the Sprint events and on the morning of the test day. This will enable you to get an even more detailed analysis of where to position the Kart on the circuit, brake and accelerate as well as understanding the key overtaking places.
