Default Ulverston Track Information

This information has been kindly provided by Paul Westwell

Ulverston Radio Car Club – Local Info and guide
We are on Facebook as Ulverston radio car club, please feel free to join our page.
Travel – M6 junction 36, follow signs for Barrow-in-Furness, Ulverston is approx. 25 mins from this Junction. Upon entering Ulverston you will come to a roundabout with booth super market opposite, go straight on and after approx. 150 m take the first left – (You should see a sign for a hand car wash) at this turning, this is North Lonsdale rd. Straight to the bottom of this road and take left at the junction, straight over the roundabout at the sports club is located on the right.

Car Park and access.
The facility will be open at 3pm on Friday and the gate will be closed at 7pm
and areas marked for camping and pitting, the bar will be open until 7pm Friday and will be open in the day on Saturday and Sunday to serve drinks with a catering van present for hot food.
There is a limited amount of parking directly outside the sports club and there is an overflow car park across the road (which is signposted from the roundabout) this has a walkway access - so you don’t have to walk all the way around!
Access to the track is up the tarmac footpath to the front of the sports club and the track is on the other side of the building.
If you have any special access requirements please let us know in advance so we can arrange with the venue

Camping is available at the venue with toilets that will be open overnight and shower/wash facilities, the charge per tent set by the venue is £10 per night or £15 for 2 nights. – Please contact the oople team (PM Whittler555) if you wish to camp.
