Frustrated in his initial attempts to build "the Silverstone of the North" due to the region's undulating landscape and intemperate climate, racing fan Barnaby Ford decided instead to lobby the Houses of Parliament to make the roads on his land exempt from the stringent regulations that governed rallying on public highways. The exemption secured, he proceeded to create a 9-turn, 2.8-mile course, which has gone on to challenge and captivate drivers for decades with its signature limestone bridge and breathtaking surroundings. Longstone Pass is currently the destination for the annual Lakes TT Festival and is a candidate for a future Wales Rally GB 'power stage'.
