Race Circuits

With unrivalled experience in maintaining England’s premier race circuits, experienced echelon paving teams, joint heaters and bespoke products, we are the natural choice for race circuit surfacing.

Our reputation as the leading race circuit surfacing contractor in the UK sees us work regularly on the most well-known circuits in England including Brandshatch, Donington Park, Snetterton, Cadwell Park and Oulton Park, as well as private tracks and test circuits.

Our specialist surfacing teams are experienced in laying in echelon format to give a seamless mat – delivering a quality race finish with fewer joints giving a long lasting asset. Working with our supply chain we have developed our own specialist products befitting the unique high-stress conditions which race circuits are faced with. This suite of products can be laid according to each track’s varying conditions to ensure a consistent and uniform surface texture is achieved.

Using the latest paver technology, our laser guided pavers can achieve the tightest tolerances. These pavers are also equipped with joint heating technology so we can ensure that those joints that are necessary are formed consistently and that these do not impede track users. We don’t just offer work on your race circuit, we can also improve the surrounding areas with both our public realm & car park surfacing services.

Alongside our specialist surfacing teams, our civil engineering teams also support the full construction of new circuits or extensions of existing tracks to ensure a consistent quality approach is maintained in all aspects of race circuit delivery. We are experts in race circuit surfacing & race circuit construction. Thomas Bow recently completed track & paddock improvements at Donnington Park.

For flat racing, the most common surfaces are; turf, dirt and synthetic tracks. Turf tracks are considered the most traditional and are still used to host the majority of major race events across Europe.
