Palmer Sport

PalmerSport is a full-day driving event, created in 1991 by former F1 racer Jonathan Palmer, which has earned a well established reputation as the best corporate motorsport event in the world. And every year, with new developments, it just gets better. PalmerSport's guests drive an unrivalled collection of high performance sports cars and open-top racing cars on four purpose-built circuits at Bedford Autodrome. The unique PalmerSport philosophy is to not just permit, but actively encourage, guests to push right to the limit on every circuit in every car. These tracks have more spacious run-off areas than conventional motor racing venues, so the freedom to drive harder and faster than anywhere else in the world comes with outstanding safety too. PalmerSport guests will experience one of the most exhilarating and memorable days of their lives - and they'll have you to thank for it.
