Ideal Surrounding for a National Rally

Remember that Castle Combe Circuit is situated just a short drive from the famous village, we are surrounded, to the south west by the city of Bath, a renowned World Heritage Site. To the east is the Atwell Wilson Motor Museum ( at Calne, a little further to the east the amazing stones of Avebury and the famous Salisbury Hill. Whilst to the south a little further afield is Stonehenge and if you venue north, then you are in the glorious Cotswolds.

All in all an ideal base for a National Rally – or just a great day out.

Castle Combe Circuit probably invented Club driving days. Almost 30 years ago when, in conjunction with Classic & Sports Car Magazine we launched what have become the very successful Action Days. However, time moves on, and the range of driving opportunities now available to the owner of any type of car is enormous.

So, for 2011, after consultation with many Clubs and individual drivers we are bringing in some fairly major new Club opportunities plus the good news that all ticket and track pass prices are being held.

These include:
  • An established venue and event to use as the base for a National Rally.
  • Special Club Parades, to give you the chance to take your car on the circuit, but at strictly controlled speeds and the opportunity for a group Club photograph on the start line. Session times are 10.30 and 15.30.
  • A dedicated area for individual drivers to display their cars appropriate to the day in a central area
  • The segregation of modern sports cars from genuine classics
  • A central traffic free zone for those clubs who merely want to soak up the Castle Combe atmosphere without using the circuit

So what does all this mean to you, the Club Secretary?

A venue for your Club National Rally.

Larger Clubs may have the resources to book venues months in advance, pay deposits and book hotels. For the smaller independently run Clubs such events are much more difficult. Therefore we have created a special opportunity to use Castle Combe Circuit as the base for your National Rally/Drive In or meet.

A New Style Display and
Drive Pass

For Clubs with 15 or more cars you can take advantage of the free passes and free display space, plus, now for the first time pay a small additional charge per car and book one of our dedicated club parade passes. Allowing your members to use the circuit, behind a pace car at a steady 30-40 miles an hour, plus pausing on the start line for a group photograph and all for just £195.00 - including the photo.

Special Owner Display Area

If you are the owner of a genuine classic car or a sportscar manufactured before 1980, then as long as you book in advance you will receive a separate vehicle display pass which will enable you to park your car with other like minded

This area will be situated in the Camp Corner display area adjacent to the Race Paddock.

New Modern SportsCar Sessions

This is for any sportscar produced after 1995 and can range from a Caterham through to the latest ‘supercar’ providing they meet our sound regulations.

For enthusiasts with older cars there are then new dedicated sessions for sportscars
built between 1980 and 1995 and for genuine classics sessions for pre-1980 cars.

New Attractions

To give the long established Classics and Sports Cars Action Day even more appeal we are delighted that Specialist Motoring Auctioneering Company, Richard Edmonds Auctions, have chosen the day to host one of their fast growing auctions of classic and collectable cars, motorcycles and auto memorabilia. Entry is by programme.

The company recent ran its largest specialist auction yet with sales of well over half a million pounds. While some cars fetched tens of thousands of pounds, many lots were sold at £20 - £50 giving appeal to the ‘man in the street’ enthusiast - full details available soon at
