Hambleton Hall is ideally located for enjoying the area’s many sports, including the nearby Rockingham Motor Speedway, Europe’s fastest racing circuit, and one of the area’s most exciting racing experiences, the PalmerSport Day. We have partnered up with PalmerSport to create a complete racing day, dinner and overnight stay package.

For those not in the know, this event takes place at the Bedford Autodrome, and speed-lovers will enjoy driving a range of open-topped racing cars and high-performance sports cars on four purpose-built tracks. Uniquely, you are pushed right to your limit on every circuit as tracks have more spacious run-off areas than conventional motor racing venues, so the freedom to drive harder and faster than anywhere else comes with outstanding safety too.

It’s a slightly tamer drive back to Rutland, and your journey through marvellous English countryside is part of the joy of this unique experience. Head to the Hambleton peninsula through winding roads, where your destination sits some way out. A hotspot for sporting activity of its own kind, this picturesque nature reserve is home to keen cyclists, walkers, birdwatchers, fishers and many water sports.

We host a post-race gourmet dinner in the elegant dining room, presented by former F1 racer Johnathan Palmer, with aperitifs and fine wines chosen by Sommelier Dominique Baduel. You can read more about our long-held Michelin star and chef Aaron Patterson here.

After a thrilling day and a sociable evening you can amble upstairs to retire to one of our comfortable rooms or suites, each with its own beautiful interior and individual ambience.

The Hambleton Hall PalmerSport racing and hotel package concludes the next morning with a full Hambleton breakfast, including loaves baked nearby at the Exton Hambleton Bakery.

This event is a must for racing enthusiasts and foodies alike. Places are available exclusively through the hotel, with prices starting at £920 for a standard room and a single driver.
