Clay Pigeon Raceway is located in Dorset near Yeovil in South West England. Named after the adjacent gun club and constructed on land previously used for a World War II military hospital, Clay Pigeon Raceway opened for racing in May 1963. The circuit started life as a 500m course but through various extensions, it now has a total length of 815m. Clay Pigeon is one of the shortest on the Super 1 calendar but it is considered one of the most technically challenging to drivers. The circuit also holds club events, the South West Championship and Club 100 for full time karters, or arrive and drive events for beginners to the sport. Clay Pigeon is well renown for being Jenson Button’s home circuit but this venue has hosted many of Britain’s best drivers.
