How to Find Us

Mallory Park is situated in the village of Kirkby Mallory, just off the A47, between Leicester and Hinckley and there is easy access by road and all major cities are in reach. Look for the brown tourism road signs, including those which bring you direct from junction 21 of the M1.

Please enter using entrance B with the iron gates as you arrive in the car park (which are clearly signed Driver Day) and drive down to a large car park area.

Follow the signs and walk over the bridge towards the large grey building, where the doors will be opened at 8.45 am for registration and staff will be on hand if you require any further assistance. The course will commence at 9.00am and finish at 4pm.


When you return to collect your attendee(s), please:

  • Do not enter the track.
  • Use the same car park as you arrived this morning
  • Please wait outside the building until your attendee(s) joins you
  • Please exit Mallory Park by the same route you entered and then leave by the main exit.
  • On no account should you drive around or allow your attendee(s) to drive around the track at any time.
  • These rules have to be strictly observed.
