New Cadwell Park footbridge improves spectator access

Cadwell Park circuit owner MSV has installed a footbridge at the Lincolnshire circuit to improve access for spectators at its race events. The work was completed in time for the new season, which starts in March.

The location of the bridge links the paddock with the pit straight, crossing two sections of the circuit from the run to Coppice and the return leg between Mansfield and the legendary Mountain section. Fans will now be able to switch viewing spots between the start line and Mountain with ease, especially during the August Bank Holiday round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship, with a campsite located on the outside of the circuit opposite the pitlane.

The 40-metre steel bridge is formed of two sections and the Cadwell Park maintenance team battled the winter elements to complete the work on time. This included replacing the entire double-backed run of Armco on the central reservation, working around the new centre foundation. Great care was also taken
to place the bridge in such a way to avoid obscuring spectator views.

Jon Rush, Circuit Manager for Cadwell Park said: "The new spectator bridge at Cadwell Park is a massive forward step in making racing here even more accessible and enjoyable to watch. It's been over 25 years since Cadwell Park's first bridge (at Hall Bends) was removed, so it's great that we've finally been able to construct another bridge to open up the venue.  Both our in-house maintenance team and Beaver Bridges worked extremely hard in challenging snow and icy weather to bring this together."

The Vintage Sports-Car Club have raced at Cadwell Park since 1976, the Shuttleworth and Nuffield Trophies Race Meeting is one of the most popular for the Club, this year the event will be held on Saturday 8 June. There will be a large contingent of Bugatti's at the meeting contesting the Williams Trophy which has an increased profile this year thanks to the Bugatti International Rally which will visit Scotland later that month.  With the presence of so many unique Pre-war Bugattis it's going to be special event alone, but there also many other great races to enjoy including;

The Frazer Nash and GN Race
Morgan Three-Wheelers
Formula 3 (500) Racing Cars
Vintage Racing Cars (The John Holland Trophy)
Pre-war Standard and Modified Sports-Cars (Geoghegan Trophy)
