If you are visiting the Great Britain, you may have heard of the Bristol Motor Speedway. In case you have never been there, here is a short introduction on the history and the upcoming events.
Bristol Motor Speedway
The Bristol Motor Speedway is located in the English city of Bristol. The speedway was constructed in 1919 and was originally used as a cavalry barracks and stables. In 1924, the Bristol Athletic Club decided to use the building as a sports complex for auto racing. The following year, the speedway was officially opened as the Bristol Speedway.
Bristol Motor Speedway is one of the three legendary American speedways located in the United Kingdom (the other two are Donington Park and Silverstone). The speedway is famous for hosting the prestigious IndyCar Series and for being the venue of the annual United Kingdom Grand Prix.
IndyCar And United Kingdom Grand Prix
The Indianapolis 500, one of the most prestigious car races in the world, was first held at the Bristol Speedway in 1935. Since then, the race has been held there annually. This year will mark the 75th running of the Indianapolis 500 and the 80th running of the United Kingdom Grand Prix at the Bristol Speedway.
The United Kingdom Grand Prix is held annually at the end of June. This year’s edition will be the 20th running of the prestigious event. The race is open to top-tier touring cars and is currently scheduled to be held on Saturday, 30th June 2019. Practice and qualifying sessions will be held on Friday, 29th June 2019 and the race on Saturday, 30th June 2019.
The event will be broadcast live on BBC Television and the BBC Sport website with further live streaming available. For more information about the race, visit the Bristol Motor Speedway website or browse their database of tickets and camping packages.
What Is A Hot Pass?
If you are heading to the great Britain and are interested in heading to one of the most historic motorsports venues in the world, you may want to consider getting a hot pass. A hot pass gives you access to a restricted area of the track, where you can sit and watch the cars go by. This is usually achieved by paying more money, but if you are a racing fan, you may want to consider the extra cost.
To get a hot pass at Bristol Motor Speedway, you need to visit their website and make a donation. You can choose to make a one-off payment or set up a recurring payment. The options for recurring payments are either monthly, quarterly or half-yearly. Once you enter your payment details, you will be redirected to another page where you can download your pass. Bear in mind that this option is only open to people registered for the United Kingdom Grand Prix and people who donated for the 2019 season.
Camping At Bristol Motor Speedway
If you are a fan of the Indianapolis 500 and the like, camping at the great Britain may be a good idea. Campers can be set up close to the grandstand and you may even be able to see the famous yellow starter’s flag flying over your head.
Bristol Motor Speedway has a few designated areas where camping is allowed. These are close to the infield and on the edges of the track. You must also bring your own bedding and food, as well as cook your own meals in an open fire or stove. You are also not allowed to drink alcohol or bring tobacco products to the track. These restrictions may seem harsh, especially for fans who want to camp out for the whole week, but the organizers may need to keep an eye on things.
Getting A Club Card
If you want to access the restricted areas of the track, you need to get a club card. This card gives you access to the member’s area, which is only open to certain races and certain events. The card also gives you access to the club shop, where you can buy all sorts of merchandise from the cars to the trackside. The shop is open from early in the morning until late at night, so you can be sure that there will always be someone there to help you.
You can apply for a free club card on the Bristol Motor Speedway website. You will need to enter your email address and then click the button to apply. According to their website, it should take a few minutes for the application to be processed. Once you receive the email containing the attachment, you can either print out the form or fill it in online. The deadline to apply for a card is March 31st 2019, three months before the event.
What Are The Restricted Areas At Bristol Motor Speedway?
While the majority of the track is available to all attendees, there are a number of restricted areas at the famous Bristol Motor Speedway. These are the parts of the track that are only open to people with passes.
The most recognizable area is the Members’ enclosure. This is where you will find the drivers and VIPs’ area. The members’ enclosure is surrounded by a fence and access to the track is gained through a gate. The gate is open from 8 am until 6 pm on race days. If you are a member of the Bristol Athletic Club, you may need to show your card at the gate.
You can also find the paddock, which is the area where the cars and trucks are prepared for racing. Unlike other areas of the track, the paddock is not enclosed. The pit lane is another restricted area. This is where the teams and the drivers change for each race. The pit lane is also where accidents happen, so be careful not to go there if you’re not supposed to be there. This area is closed off to the public and is fenced in on all sides. The last restricted area is the Hockenheim Hill, a winding road up a steep embankment. You can often find parked cars at the top of this road, which some have described as the best view at the track.
The following is a list of some of the events that will take place at the Bristol Motor Speedway in the near future:
