(5 miles west of Malton, Yorkshire)
C.A.N. May, Speed Hill-Climb, G.T. Foulis & Co LTD, 1962, Page 140. (First events 1959):
"Another drive up to a 'stately home', with characteristics similar to those of Ragley, was brought into use by the Yorkshire Sports Car Club when permission was obtained to use the drive at Castle Howard, near Malton in Yorkshire. A first meeting took place on 27 June and another late in September. At both Fastest Time of Day was made by Alan Ensoll, in a D-type Jaguar, first in 26.03 sec and then in 24.20 sec. As at Ragley the road over open parkland, with little real gradient, includes a sharpish right-hand bend on the upper reaches, slightly blind by virtue of rising ground on the inside of the corner, and has a finishing straight right under the walls of the huge mansion itself."
