Oval Racing reaches Spain

The new Velocity Racing Cartagena Oval motor racing circuit in Cartagena, Murcia, is now open and ready for action. The last section of track has been laid and new barriers have been introduced. This is the first short Oval Circuit in Spain and guaranteed to become popular with the Spanish, who have never experienced the delights of stock car or even banger racing. With a guaranteed 320 days of sunshine and located about 30-minutes from the site of the new Paramount Studios Theme Park, it’s also a perfect location for UK and Irish drivers looking to practice during the winter months. The organisers, Velocity Racing, were proud to have the one and only Mr Colin White, three times National Hot Rod World Champion, to officially open the track, with his national hot rod in tow!

Oval circuits can vary dramatically in length and physical layout and therefore each track presents its own unique challenges and demands on the driver. It’s no different in Spain, as the track drops and swoops and although only 400 metres in length, gives a lot of challenges to the drivers, especially when it comes to tyre wear. Velocity Racing Spain, intend to bring a range of formulas, including 1300 Stock Cars, 2.0 Hot Rods, Lightning Rods, Junior Rods, Rookie Rods and National Hot Rods, with Legends cars hopefully coming in the not too distant future.
