The Chilterns Branch of the Hovercraft Club of Great Britain (HCGB) will have two visits to the Towcester venue this year.

  • Round 4: 6/7 July 2019
  • Round 5: 20/21 July 2019

After Towcester Racecourse went into administration last year, the Chilterns Branch of the HCGB were determined to keep this venue on their calendar as it's so popular with the drivers and the perseverance has paid off. A great deal of thanks have to go to the remaining staff there (Keith & Grace) for facilitating and supporting its return.

This time around the course will remain the same as it was set up for last year's event, but this may change rotation for the second event. The longer straight gives the F1’s and F2's the opportunity to stretch their legs and open up to their max speed of around 70mph.

There will 6 different formula's represented, right though from the Junior Colts (aged 11-13) to the F1 category.

With the dog racing now cancelled for the foreseeable future, the race programme will be run as standard. This will allow our normal paddocks breaks, which if the programme is running to schedule the public will be allowed to enter the paddock for a close up look at the craft.


  •     Saturday: Practice starts at 10.00hrs. Racing starts at 13.00hrs
  •     Sunday:        Practice starts at 9.30hrs. Racing starts at 11.30hrs

Entry is via the main gate at the front entrance off the A5.

Entry fee: £5 per person or £15 per car (based on 4 people sharing) under 16's free.
