    Not sure on the IRL track, but I don't enjoy racing on it. I think IRL it's more of a motorcycle and very small car track.

    Its my local and most used track.
    Yes very narrow. It is mainly used for Motorcycle racing/track days with the odd car club race and trackday.

    When I am on my track bike and doing a sub 1.50 lap, it feels wide enough. In a car it does feel very narrow.
    It's a proper bike track in my opinion and one of the best in the world for bikes.

    Yup i can confirm it really is that narrow. Having driven there as few years back. My memory could be incorrect but perhaps narrower in reality.

    Spectating the super bikes here is somthing to behold. Check out the youtube videos of the bikes flying over the mountain. Wow just wow

    Yes, Cadwell really is that narrow.
    it is not really a car track, yet they used race things like Tuscans there and Production Cup.

    FF1600 back in the day was fraught with accidents and I think coz of its narrowness the biggest stuff you could race there was F3 which is why an F3 car held the lap record from about 82!!

    Karts are great there, but it's a bike track, always has been always will be
