Machine round timber and sleepers
M&M Timber utilised their state-of-the-art CNC router machine to create precision-machined components for new spectator viewing platforms at the world’s most prestigious classic automotive circuit, in conjunction with a leading fencing contractor, Knight Fencing.
Goodwood Circuit is a historic 3.8km (2.4 mile) circuit for two- and four-wheeled motorsport near Chichester, West Sussex. The track is the only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form, following a six-year restoration project.
It is home to three of the biggest sporting events in the world: The Festival of Speed, the Qatar Goodwood Festival and the Goodwood Revival.
With a requirement for additional viewing platforms and tight deadlines in the racing calendar, Knight Fencing was commissioned to install and source timber from rounded timber supplier M&M Timber.
M&M Timber supplied 4,000 linear metres of timber to Goodwood. The timber was sourced from well managed forests and scalloped using a state-of-the-art Kimla CNC router machine, to give a bespoke and aesthetically-pleasing barrier from which members of the public can view the action.
M&M Timber also supplied their rough sawn DuraSleeper which was used in a variety of configurations to create edging or walling features. At Goodwood, the sleepers have been used to create steps and access ramps to the race track viewing area.
Fraser Hall, Managing Director of M&M Timber said “We have been working with Danny from Knight Fencing on a number of previous projects, so when we were contacted about the opportunity we were thrilled to supply the timber required for their project. It has been a pleasure supplying the timber for such a prestigious race track, while presenting a perfect opportunity to showcase our machining capabilities for more bespoke requirements.”
