Rebuilt in 1999 and owned by former Racing Driver Jonathan Palmer, Bedford Autodrome was designed for the enjoyment of high-performance road cars. As well as an excellently designed and challenging layout, it also has lots of runoff areas making it one of the safest track day circuits in the country. For this reason, Bedford Autodrome track days are popular for Novice drivers. The Circuit has 2 layouts, the Grand Turismo at 4.1 miles and the SEN Circuit at 2.3 miles. Bedford Autodrome is also a popular location for corporate driving events. The circuit is also used for the Palmer Sports corporate events which are hosted on a monthly basis.
