The first phase of construction of the rallycross circuit for the 2007 London Masters competition, held at ExCel on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December is now complete. Built in three phases, the first phase involved creating a hardcore base which will withstand any amount of punishment from the top Rallycross cars.
The surface has been screened, re-graded, leveled and rolled to the highest specification. The loose sections of the circuit, that needed to be constructed three months prior to the event to give time for the areas to settle, are now in place to ensure that the surface is perfect for high performance motorsport.
The circuit is a minimum of 14.5 metres wide with an approximate length of 650 metres. The lap time for a Division 1 car is expected to be between 30 and 35 seconds with an average speed of approximately 80mph. The circuit has been constructed with fast flowing corners, featuring two spectacular yumps.
The work was carried out by the PSM Motorsport Ltd circuit construction team & Starting Grid Ltd in association with Shannon Holdings. Philip Bunn from Starting Grid said: “It was amazing to see the bulldozer go in and there were a few nail biting moments but the foundation of the circuit is now in place and looks fantastic. We would like to thank Ollie O’Donovan and Shannon Holdings for their involvement with the event and the supplying of the equipment for the construction.”
