'Car Limits' at North Weald airfield give an opportunity to rag your car around. Nearest circuits for proper track sessions are Brands Hatch, Bedford and further away but best bet, Snetterton.

Car Limits is good fun, more of a sprint circuit. Can be hard on your paint though as there's quite a lot of debris about.

Woodbridge Airfield (ex RAF Woodbridge aerodrome) do hold trackdays periodically and the circuit is quite interesting (but not permanent so a lot is cone layout).

A few of the trackday providers do Woodbridge, I know Javelin did.

Also depending whereabouts in Essex, you might Brand Hatch the closest (across the QE2 Bridge)

I'd suggest that you look for the closest track, rather than the closet one, as you might find that there is not enough room to go very far....
