In early 2007 Anglesey had almost the entire circuit re-designed. It now boasts 4 circuit layouts including a Full (GP), Club, National and 'Coastal' circuit. Originally the Bodorgan Estate owned the land on which the circuit is situated. The land was sold to the army briefly in 1941 when it was developed as a rocket launching area. The estate was able to buy back the land, complete with the entire road network the army had installed. In common with other race circuits in the UK the roads were joined together and this created the circuit. Anglesey track days now hosts a large amount of car and bike races and track days.

One of the shorter circuits in the UK, but it is very popular with both competitors and spectators. Competitors find the Lydden Hill Circuit quite a challenge. Lydden has a variety of bends, gradient and short straights, which keep competitors very busy. The circuit was designed and built by Mr Bill Chesson in 1965. Originally 0.705 miles in length, it was increased to 1 mile in 1967 when the hairpin was extended up Hairy Hill. Spectators like Lydden because it is a natural bowl. Wherever they choose to view they can see 90% of the track. Started in 1955 by Bill Chesson, the track was originally used for stock cars and grass track racing.

Rally Cross is still one of the most popular events at Lydden Hill and recently featured on Top Gear where the Presenters took part in a rallycross race.

One of only two racing circuits in Wales, Pembrey Race Circuit is an extremely popular track day venue. Pembrey Race Track is another of those hidden gem circuits ignored due to its location. That's unfortunate as it represents great racing of nearly one and a half miles of continually improving track. In 2001 vast improvements were made to the whole venue with the long-awaited track extension, a new pit complex and spectator bridge, meaning the circuit could see international racing before too long. A brand new section of track is planned for 2017 which will allow for more than one layout to be used for any given event. One of the features of the new circuit layout is a heavy breaking section that will be followed by high-speed right-hand corners, testing not only the ability of the vehicles on track but also the ability of racers and riders. The current Pembrey circuit layout is governed by two vital corners: Brooklands Hairpin and Honda Curve. Each leads on to a critically fast part of the circuit so carrying speed is vital. The inner part of the circuit is seemingly a never-ending sequence of bends while the incredibly tight Hatchers hairpin is at the end of the longest straight making it very easy to overshoot under braking. Below you can see all of the current Pembrey track days for both car and motorcycle.

Located at a former World War 2 US air base, Snetterton began its motorsport life in the hands of a group of Aston Martin enthusiasts. Among the first additions to the track were two chicanes designed to reduce racing speeds down the huge runways! With two of the longest straights in the country and a location deep in the countryside, Snetterton is an ideal venue for round-the-clock events, long distance record attempts and speed trials. Newly built pit garages and hospitality suites have further enhanced its spectator appeal, as well as the new 'Snetterton 300' Circuit which adds another mile and a complex set of new corners.

Thruxton race circuit is one of the fastest in the country with legendary high-speed corners and reputation where circuit drivers can really test their skills. It lays claim to being one of the longest in the UK at 2.4 miles per lap. Both track days and driving experiences are available.
Thruxton track days is a circuit like many others around the UK was originally an old airfield used in during the war. The airfield opened as a race track in 1950, both the runways and perimeter roads were used for the track. To begin with, it was only bikes that used the track until 1952 when the cars joined in on the action. Track action came to a stop in 1965 due to the tarmac being extremely worn. Plans were soon put into action to redevelop, just three years later in 1968, the track re-opened.
The newly developed track had been changed and instead of using the runways the perimeter roads were used and the new chicane along with three tight corners has made this track one of the greatest. Despite adding the chicane and the three corners Thruxton is still believed to be the fastest race track in the UK.
A new 1100 metre outdoor state-of-the-art kart track has recently been opened, and this has been specially designed to provide a testing yet competitive course, built to an international specification.
