Facilities at Loton

There is TONS of very accessible spectator areas – all with great views of the track.

There are a selection of porta loos dotted about, plus plenty of food outlets. Including a burger van, the clubhouse, and an ice cream truck.

It’s a very open hill, and so really easy to get into and wander around the paddock.

The Hillclimb at Loton Park

This long and twisty course, set in Sir Michael Leighton’s Shropshire deer park, is a challenge for drivers and exciting for spectators.

The cars disappear off the start line round to the right around Hall Corner and Loggerheads. Then they come back into view and sweep around Triangle and then head up to a left at Keepers and then on along Cedar Straight. Then it’s into the final section and left around the deceptively difficult Fallow, up through Museum and over the finish line.

Length – 0.84 miles (1.35km)

Outright Hill Record: 43.52secs – Scott Moran (Gould GR61X), 10th June 2012.
