Getting There

Turn off the M6 at junction 25 and at the roundabout turn right towards Ashton in Makerfield. At the first main traffic lights, turn left and about half a mile later turn left onto Bryn Road. Turn left onto Lockett Road and then left again onto Three Sisters Road. The track is at the end.

For people travelling south on the M6, there is no exit at J25. The 3 Sisters site suggests travelling on to J24 and heading back up to J25...

Marshal's Perspective

A great little circuit - many configurations for many different racing series, one that can be different every time.

Also, the circuit really look after the marshals - makes it well worth turning up. And not too early either due to a 10am curfew!
