Cadwell or Oulton

Following on from another thread I will ask the question why more people from down south go to Cadwell rather than Oulton.

I have just done some very quick mileage/time checks from Central London/West London/Kent/Surrey and in most instances Oulton is closer or at worst the same distance.

I know that the DD round goes there, but that has only been this year. I know that Cadwell is often cheaper (usually a track charges more due to facilities?)

So how many of you have been to Oulton compared to how many have been to Cadwell and what's your reasoning?

I was thinking of a poll, but adding more tracks, although I'm guessing brands would get the most votes being "local"

I've done Cadders 4 times and Oulton none.

Went to Cadwell for TA2 and loved it, so keep going back for more.
I'd love to ride Oulton, and it's on my list of things to do next season... maybe see ya there Lily, bring cookies!

Its not a geographical decision that decides which tracks I'll go to. I've done both, they are both fabulous for different reasons.

The only reason that I haven't been to Oulton this year is because there's no DD race there.

That makes total sense this year and I know you have been up to Oulton before as have a few others, I just wonder why more hadn't

I've done both, but prefer Oulton out of all the tracks i've done (only done 5 different tracks though), and massive bonus its on the doorstep

But it always rains at Cadwell anyway!!!!

As for the pic - if you look closely you'll see its the class 996R not the crass 998S!!!!
