Mallory Park is to celebrate its reopening on Saturday 1st March with what is set to be a star-studded open day event.
Phil Read, Michael Dunlop and John McGuinness are all confirmed to be attending the event alongside Buildbase BMW’s British Superbike pairing of three time champ, Ryuichi Kiyonari and his team mate James Westmoreland.
The future had looked bleak for the Leicestershire circuit when operator, Mallory Park Motorsport Limited went into administration; however a last minute deal for former racers Stuart Hicken and Eddie Roberts saw the Hinckley venue saved.
Today, the new circuit operators have revealed a re-branding of the circuit, including a new logo designed by former British Superbike Champion, Tommy Hill. In a statement released on Facebook, Eddie Roberts said a calendar will be released in the coming weeks, with the first Wednesday Practice kicking off on March 5th alternating between cars and bikes each week.
The March 1st Open day will be a free of charge event, with the option to donate to the circuit’s chosen charity, 353.org.uk, a charity trust with the aim of helping members of the military community by delivering long-term support to a variety of charities, soldiers and their families. The trust also supports mourning families looking to raise money in the name of lost ones.
