Hello all, my first post but have been reading the site for a while and have found it all very interesting. This was my first attempt at UE (started with an easy one! :gay ) but it has been on my list of things to see for a few years. The site is fairly famous but check this out for more info: http://www.gpracing.net192.com/circuits/6.cfm

Some of the the painted advertisments have recently been restored which I feel kind of takes away some of the atmosphere of the place but it does mean that they'll be around for a while longer. I was really impressed with the condition the place was in considering it hasn't been used in 30+ years. It would seem that the area doesn't suffer from too many pikeys, although there was evidence of some vandalism.

Not really any pics of the complex as a whole because most were taken of a newly purchased car but there's some interesting stuff none the less.

Being a bit of a car nut I really enjoyed wandering around here imagining Fangio tearing the rs off a formula one car. I hope you enjoy the photos and if anyone else has been here I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the place.
