Round 6 - Blyton Park (Eastern), 18th August 2019
Blyton Park in Lincolnshire has become a series regular since it first appeared. At the time it was a somewhat dirty bit of concrete using bales and tyres to mark out a course on what was left of the runway and was closer to a rally stage than a sprint course. That winter however the circuit was transformed by a new owner and a large investment into the drivers playground it is today, the concrete surface of the airfield is still in place but now it serves as runoff for the silky smooth surface of the tarmac layed into it. This means that the venue has the benefits of a race circuit but without the barriers that come with it allowing drivers to explore their limits knowing they have that forgiving extra runoff. Blyton Park also boasts several confirgurations after further tarmac was layed over the past few years meaning the two appearances on the calendar provide more than enough variety to warrant the extra visit.
