Designed from scratch by former F1 driver Jonathan Palmer, there is nowhere else in the world like Bedford Autodrome. The venue has been purpose built for speed and space, containing four entirely distinct circuits and over 5 miles of track laid out across a 384 acre site, with vast run-off areas that provide optimum safety.
