Castle Combe Autumn Classic 2nd October 2021 - ATTENDEES - PLEASE BRING AREA FEATHER FLAG IF YOU CAN

Car floatation devices are an optional extra as are snorkels, life jackets & waders. But I predict light fluffy clouds & blue skies or my name is Pinocchio !

Club parking will hopefully be adjacent to the Armco at Westway with the ESV in attendance.

Please bring you area feather flag if you can.

Arrow Right     40 cars booked + 55 members booked.

Whats on in brief: F500, Vintage Sports Car Club (VSCC), Frazer Nash (aka 'The Chain Gang'), Fifties Sports Cars (FISCAR), Jaguars including E Types, GT Sports Car Club (GTSCC). Also promised are demo runs & the Dream Garage.

All grids & the race card to be announced soon here: Castle Combe Race Circuit (castlecombecircuit.co.uk)

Apart from the Thruxton weekend in June & the Silverstone Classic the Autumn Classic may be the only other opportunity for the club to congregate in numbers & enjoy some racing.

Looks like its back to a 1 day meeting this year. For me that's a shame as its not worth a 260 mile round trip for 1 day.

Hey ho.

GaryK: Senior admission is 65+

Chris Todd: Last year was a two day affair to celebrate the circuit 70th Anniversary. Bit of a damp squib! Normal service resumed to first Saturday of October.

First booking - thanks Donald H

Only twenty nine cars to go. Thirty is my minimum for the day but don't let that figure stop any one booking.  As with last years bookings for the Saturday maybe 45 is possible? 

The more the merrier at the 'West Revival'.

Thanks for organizing this again, Geoff.  Fear not, I'll be there, but first I have to fix accommodation -- not so easy at the moment with so many pubs etc closed.

Well done John. You obviously have faith in my organising skills but not control of the weather?

I will know when you have purchased a ticket. My little secret.

Seems as though accommodation is available for booking - Ref #7 Lazzer - aka Mr ESV.

This is a great day out (despite the notoriously unpredictable weather!). Geoff, do you know if they are allowing spectators this year? Thanks

Sam - As last year the circuit was 'COVID SECURE' with a limited number of spectators. No access to paddock. 
I would imagine that hopefully by this October regs on spectator sports may be more relaxed with few conditions for spectators - who knows?

Public tickets are on sale so an optimistic start.

Watch the event ad in the secure area for any update. So see you there?
