Aintree Grand Prix Circuit Full Lap at the old Formula 1 Track Onboard POV

Aintree Grand Prix Circuit Full Lap at the old Formula 1 Track Onboard POV. A slow lap on the old Aintree Formula One Circuit. The Aintree Grand Prix Circuit was a 3-mile motor racing circuit in the village of Aintree. The track was located within the famous Aintree Horse Race Track and used the same grandstands. The circuit has hosted the Formula One British Grand Prix five times, in 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961 and 1962. On the First event in 1954 the track was driven counter clockwise. Than they changed the driving direction to clockwise. The last races on the full Grand Prix circuit were in 1964. A part of it is still open and was used for racing until the early 1980s. Today the 1.535-mile Club Circuit is used six times a year for car sprints, track days and motorcycle racing. On July 27, 2018 I visited the old Grand Prix circuit of Aintree, as part of my Circuit Tour 2018 through England. When I planned my trip I contact the Aintree Circuit Club, but they didn’t found it nessacary to answer my e-mail Then I tried to contact the Liverpool Motor Club, with the same result. So my expectations were not very high for this visit. In the best case I can take some video shoots from the horse race track and the sprint circuit. I First went to the horse track. A security guard told me the circuit was on a golf course and told me how to get there. At the golf course I already saw the sprint track. I asked at the counter if I could enter it. The man at the couter called another man. He said “Step in my car and I will show you the circuit”. Then he drove me a lap around the full grand prix circuit! So, . I wish to thank the unknown man from the golf course, who drove me around the circuit. Thanks for watching this video.
