Aintree History

This was an attempt to use Liverpool's famous horse-racing course for motor racing. When opened in 1954 it was an anticlockwise circuit, but from the second meeting races were run in the conventional direction. The British Grand Prix was first held there in 1955.

The track was flat and artificial, roughly triangular with two reasonable straights, an infield loop and temporary pits.

In the first of five British GPs run at Aintree, Stirling Moss headed a Mercedes 1-2-3-4 in 1955 and also took over Brooks' Vanwall to win in 1957 - the first all British win in a world championship Grand Prix. The last GP at Aintree was run in 1962 and by 1964 the circuit seemed lost. However, local enthusiasm revived it for occasional national meetings from 1966, and the 1.64mile/2.64km club circuit survives.
