Based in Cheshire with an absolute rollercoaster of a layout, it’s no surprise that Oulton Park is one of the UK’s most loved tracks. It’s also one of the most difficult to master thanks to its fast, flowing and undulating nature. So how on earth can you get the best out of the picturesque circuit? With our guide of course…


On the approach to Old Hall, look for the long patch of tarmac on the left hand side of the track.

1 Old Hall

Coming over the start finish line you’ll be at a slight lean angle and gassing hard, wrestling the bike from the centre of the track to the left hand side; by the time the track runs straight you need to be well onto the lighter patch of tarmac that runs down the side of the track. Just as you come under the start lights get your body in position and hit the brakes where the dirt road starts on the left hand side of the track. There’s a few big bumps so be aware. Peel in as late as possible, just before the start of the inside kerb, and apex where the drain cover dissects the white line. It’s a late apex and it’s important that you carry plenty of speed into the turn and get on the gas hard to avoid being passed on the run down The Avenue. The bike will want to run onto the outside kerb, which is fine, but be aware that it ends abruptly so you need to get back on the tarmac quick.

2 The Avenue

If you’ve nailed Old Hall, you should be right out by the kerb on the exit. Stay over to the left side for the perfect entry in to Dentons and don’t be tempted to roll off early for the blind crest.

3 Dentons

Dentons is absolutely vital for setting you up for Cascades so stay as tight to the inside kerb as you can. Aim to apex where the marshal hut is on the inside and make sure you can quickly flick your body to the left as soon as you are through and can see down the hill. Don’t let the bike drift out too far directly after Dentons.
