Racing started at Syston in 1906 with a hill climb.
In 1926 Syston Park created the ﬁrst road race circuit in Britain. With Brooklands and Donnington Park it became one of the premier racing venues of its time attracting crowds of 30,000, however racing ceased in 1939.
Originally a motor cycle Grand Prix venue Syston Park was used as a training ground for the TT and Manx Grand Prix. Later in its short history it attracted cars such as ‘Bloody Mary’ and ERA R1 competing in the Oxford & Cambridge Inter ‘Varsity competitions.
The revival, 27th August 2017
Motorsport returns in 2017, we will re-capture the spirit of the original Syston events, with only pre 1939 cars and motor cycles running up the original half mile hill climb.
Gates will open from 8.30 with the action starting at 10.00 including several Syston Originals who raced there in period, together with some other fabulous period machinery from grand prix cars, works motor cycles from the TT and eccentric aero engined Edwardian specials.
Away from the track we will have, a classic car park – so please bring yours along and a traditional catering tent serving lunch and refreshments through the day.
To preserve the intimate feel of the event we are limiting tickets and they are selling fast, once they are gone they are gone. Tickets must be pre booked and are currently only available online and will NOT be available on the day.
We hope to see you on Sunday 27th August.
