There isn’t anywhere else you should be than the grassy banks of Castle Combe Circuit on Bank Holiday Monday.
It’s going to be a fantastic meeting with 10 races, including something for everyone in the line-up.
It is the sixth instalment of the Dave Allan memorial race held by Honda Manufacturing UK, based in Swindon. This 45 minute endurance race is open to all and is Honda’s fitting tribute to man who was crucial to the rigorous testing of these locally made cars. Honda will have their SYNCHRO Race team on display in the paddock along with a free to enter simulator race with prizes for the fastest of the day.
It will also be all eyes on our home-grown Championships as they get back on track after a damp Easter bank holiday, that now seems like a lifetime ago! The GT Championship sponsored by Simonstone Motorgroup kicks off at 12.50 with an ever impressive variety of metal. It was mixed fortunes all round at Easter, so Monday could well hold some lap records and new winners on the podium.
The National Windscreens Saloon Championship will undoubtedly not disappoint an eager crowd. Once again we have a large grid and the likes of Simon Thornton-Norris will be impressing the crowds again in his blisteringly quick Mitsubishi Colt.
A firm crowd favourite and never shy of entertainment are the Formula Ford’s sponsored by Melksham Motor Spares. These cars are at the forefront of British racing and Combe never fails to deliver on entertainment.
Also proving that the older generation of cars still pack the power to impress, we have the Hot Hatch Series sponsored by Pro-Alloys at 16.00. This mix of older machinery driven by an even wider range of drivers has repeatedly entertained the crowd with its own array of experience and determination not seen at many other circuits!
The circuit also plays host to the well-loved Mighty Minis. Branded as the little car with the big heart, Mini racing never fails to excite and entertain the crowds as they thrash these little beasts around some of most unforgiving corners in motorsport history. At the other end of the car size scale we also welcome back the much loved Jaguar Enthusiasts Club.
On track at 13.50, the Jaguars will be heaving and snorting their way around the circuit in true fashion. If that wasn’t enough entertainment for you, then we have not one, but two doses of possibly one of the most eclectic mix of race cars in the UK. The Track Attack Racing club will be out in force at 15.05 and also rounding the day off at 17.55.
