Motorcycle race track

Croix-en-Ternois has a small motorcycle race track. The circuit is just over a mile long and is well-known for its very long main straight and exquisitely twisty in-field section. It is generally loved by small-bike racers for whom the twists are a joy.
The circuit is used very regularly for various car and bike race meetings, and is also frequently open for track days. The circuit is also used by the British Motorcycle Racing Club (BEMSEE) as a round of their annual race calendar.
The circuit is friendly place with a bar and cafe on site. The paddock has some power provision and has toilets and showers, though they are not up to much. In 2004 the toilet block near the circuit entrance had sparse plumbing, contents of the toilets dropped into an open sewer and flooding was common.
