Crimond Raceway

Crimond Raceway is a stock-car racing circuit on an industrial estate which forms part of the former RNAS Rattray, a half-mile (1 km) east northeast of the village of Crimond in Aberdeenshire. It is the most northerly race track in the UK. It began with a two-mile (3-km) circuit on the perimeter taxiways around the former air station runways in the 1950s, where the Aberdeen and District Motor Club held regular races. It was here that motor racing world champion Jim Clark (1936-68) began his career in 1956 driving an unlikely DKW Sonderklasse saloon car in competition with racing cars. The circuit moved to its present location in 1973 and the oval track now hosts a series of stock-car racing events.
