With Rockingham Motor Speedway, near Corby in Northamptonshire, being sold to new owners less than 20 years after it was built, it seemed a fitting time to share some pictures from the venue in happier days.
Despite never fully living up to the expectations when it was built, it has provided excellent racing including in the British Touring Car Championship and British GT, neither of which are due to use the track in 2019.
Hopefully the track will remain, though rumours that housing developers have eyed up the land are a worrying precedence for other independently-owned circuits across the UK.
