CORE awarded enabling contract at former Rockingham Motor Speedway
CORE Special Projects Ltd was instructed to commence work on a four-hectare site, part of the former Rockingham Motor Speedway to make way for the largest automotive and logistics site in the region.
The scope of works included earthworks and stone filling to form temporary areas for the existing tenants, Groupe CAT: CAT UK Services Ltd.
The initial package of works commenced in March 2020 for a duration of 2 months. Further packages commenced in June 2020. The form of contract is NEC 4.
The site, which consists of 27 hectares of parking, a 1.48 mile race track, spectator stands, pit garages and staff sand customer welfare facilities, is now the UK’s new centre for automotive logistics and is mainly used for the storage of fleet vehicles and parts and the refurbishment of vehicles, which is carried out in the existing pit garaging.
The former Rockingham Speedway, which once hosted the British Touring Cars Championship, hosted its last race in December 2018. The 52,000-capacity venue opened in 2001 at a cost of £45m.
