If you’re coming to Oulton Park for this weekend’s Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship event, here’s everything you need to know to help you make the most of the weekend.
Gate opening times
Public admission to the circuit is from 7.00am on Saturday and Sunday.
Oulton Park is situated next to Little Budworth and is best accessed from the A54 or the A49. For full directions and a map click here.
Parking is free of charge for all public car parks. Please follow directional signage on arrival.
The campsite opens at midday on Friday 28 June and will close at midday on Monday 1 July. Access is via the East Gate entrance, where a member of staff will direct you to the relevant camping area. Our full camping leaflet can be viewed by clicking here. Additional camping tickets can be purchased on the day priced at £30 per adult and £18 for teenagers between the ages of 13-15.
If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required.
In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the main MSV office at Brands Hatch, Fawkham, Longfield, Kent, DA3 8NG.
Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven’t received yours, login to your MSV account to access them. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - you must have your e-tickets printed.
Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.
If you need to purchase any additional admission tickets, these are available on the gate for £16 for adults, £10 for teens (13-15) and £13 for Senior Citizens on Saturday and £35 for adults, £21 for teens and £27 for Senior Citizens on Sunday. Under-13s go free!
