Cadwell Park -  Racing Green

Cadwell Park - Racing Green

MotorSport Vision (MSV) operates a number of motor racing circuits in the UK, plus one in Spain, with another under development in France - which is intended to be the world's first self-sufficient eco circuit. The MSV group also includes the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, the GB3 and GB4 single-seater championships, the PalmerSport corporate driving event at Bedford Autodrome, MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR) and MotorSport Vision Trackdays (MSVT).

As the UK’s leading motor racing circuit owner MSV fully recognises the importance of a) reducing the environmental impact of our venues and events, where practicable, b) maintaining strong relations with the community and c) having a clear commitment to accessibility and inclusion.

We are pleased to share some examples of this good practice at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire. This is by no means a complete list, and our approach and policies will adapt, expand and evolve over time.


Waste Management

  • Cadwell Park is progressively improving its recycling policy with office paper and cardboard, tyres, metals and oil (cooking and mechanical) already recycled via local refuse and recycling providers. Cadwell Park will continue to work towards a full site-wide recycling process being in place by the end of 2024
  • Recycling stations will start to appear throughout the venue in 2023 as part of the move towards improving our recycling policy
  • Biodegradable packaging was introduced at the circuit’s Clubhouse restaurant in 2021, as we look to move away from single-use plastics
  • We use paper straws, offer recyclable wooden cutlery and use only recyclable coffee cups
  • 90% of race meeting tickets are now sent digitally rather than being printed and posted
  • All printed race programmes produced by us use Forest Stewardship Council certified paper Many racing clubs have switched to offering only digital PDF programmes
  • All redundant electrical and computer equipment on site is sent to the group’s head office at Brands Hatch to be recycled
  • The treatment of spillages is carried out on site, with absorbent materials being used to ensure contamination is minimised and contained
  • These absorbent materials are themselves made from recycled products and are environmentally friendly
  • Material excavated from improvement works at Cadwell Park is frequently deployed elsewhere on site, with nothing sent to landfill. For example, following the recent earthworks to create a larger tarmacked paddock the soil was retained on site and recently used on a project to raise the infield levels at Hall Bends


  • Woodland management is a priority for our venue, and we work closely with the local authority and experts in the field to ensure we maintain our biodiversity
  • A tree planting programme exists so that fallen or felled trees are replaced
  • Large areas of our woodland are devoted to wilding. Where possible, these areas are devoted to natural habitats with no public access

Energy Usage

  • Cadwell Park has been progressively replacing all its standard lights for LED alternatives and 85% of the site has now been upgraded including within the paddock areas and buildings
  • Employees are given clear guidelines and actively encouraged to minimise energy use in their respective workspaces


  • Carers of disabled guests are entitled to free admission to race events at Cadwell Park (with prior arrangement required)
  • Dedicated parking areas within the venue are provided for Blue Badge holders, including trackside viewing areas, with disabled toilet facilities and reserved paddock parking

Travel and Transport

  • Given our rural location, and lack of local public transport, reducing the number of vehicles attending the venue is difficult, however we do encourage car sharing where possible and several of our team members do car share on a regular basis

Community Relations

  • We hold a Villagers’ Day each year for the local community, with thousands of pounds raised for charitable causes
  • We have close relations with nearby schools and have arranged many formal visits and excursions. One school holds its annual sports day on our grounds
  • A local resident pass scheme provides those living close to the circuit all year-round free access
  • In 2022 we trialled the addition of local farmers’ markets on selected events
  • We strive to use local businesses for our materials and supplies wherever possible, for example all our fresh meat, dairy and vegetables is sourced locally
  • Since 2012 we have hosted free cycle rides for the local community
