THREE Sisters Circuit’s track operator has announced an investment of more than £300,000 to upgrade the facility in a bid to bring in new business.
Motorsport Circuit Management Ltd (MCM) recently revealed a plan to invest £210,000 to completely resurface the Wigan racetrack, with an additional £60,000 going into associated circuit safety works and another £53,000 committed to a new fleet of Cadet and Junior Karts.
And the contribution, a cool £323,000 all together, will not only go toward an upgrade to the main circuit itself, but also the creation of a ‘Bambino’ circuit for 6-7 year olds and separate circuits for 8-16 year olds.
MCM’s newly-appointed CEO Bill Sisely admitted he had to find little motivation to begin restoring Three Sisters to its former glory.
“I am delighted to have secured this investment which marks the start of the restoration of this famous venue,” he said. “I’ve come out of retirement after a lifelong career in operating motorsport circuits and my aim, along with the new management team who also have many years’ experience, is to make Three Sisters ‘the jewel of the north’ again.
“I am looking forward to working closely with the local community and Wigan Borough Council to develop the Circuit to its full potential and expand the karting activities available at the circuit.
“Weather permitting the asphalt contractors will be on site on 8 January 2018.”
Officials say the circuit will be closed from 8 January 2018 for 15 days as work gets underway.
