A short History of Blyton
Like most modern circuits, Blyton Park started life as an airfield. Opened on 20 April 1942 as RAF Blyton, it was home to 2,355 service personnel during the Second World War.
With three runways, several large hangars, bomb stores and plentiful space for accommodation its first purpose was as an Operational Training Unit (O.T.U.) for Polish aircrew learning to fly Wellington bombers. 199 squadron moved in during November 1942 and flew 119 sorties over enemy territory during a four month residency. Later in 1943, RAF Blyton became home to No1662 Heavy Conversion Unit (HCU). Their Wellington and Lancaster bombers were based in Gainsborough until the end of the war.
Post 1945, Blyton Park became a reserve field for the US Air Force which is when the runways were coated in tarmac. The circuit continued to operate as an airfield until 1954, but the runway was still used for take-off and landing practice.
The airfield was acquired by motorsport enthusiast Richard Usher in March 2011 before being repurposed as a one and a half mile tarmac circuit. Two months later, Blyton Park Driving Centre opened for business, with the main activities being track and experience days with optional driver tuition.
In recent years, a number of alternate circuit configurations have been introduced and as a result, the circuit is now a hub for numerous car and motorbike disciplines. Licenced by the MSA for sprint competition, Blyton Park hosts a number of rallycross and grasstrack events, as well as supermoto and superlites series.
