Castle Combe Autumn Classic - 3rd & 4th October 2020 - Club Tickets - SALES EXPIRE 31st AUGUST

With all the doom & gloom of favourite events being postponed or cancelled the Castle Combe Autumn Classic is still on.  It could be one of the very few classic racing events to survive as a result of the pandemic. So if you want your 2020 dose of petrol fumes & elbows out racing this is it! And of course in the company of club members & like minded people. 

Set over TWO days to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the circuit there will be at least eight grids per day producing hair raising & elbows out racing.  On both days track side parking will be available for at least 40 Sevens only a very short distance from the Armco at Westway.  The ESV will be attending with a Club Coleman Shelter for back up.

I know that there are quite a few devotees & repeat attendees of this much loved event out there so you have until 31st August to purchase club discounted tickets. For example a Seniors weekend ticket is only £18.00 - bargain!

Thanks John B & Nick H for having faith & booking. All I need now is for a further 35 bookings before 31st August to total 40 cars......

Thanks Geoff, always a good couple of days as drivers throw caution to the wind at the end of the season! My abiding memory is one wet year, a Healey 3000 was on opposite lock nearly all the way from Bobbies to Camp every lap.

Well Geoff, you'll be pleased to know that I've made some progress.  So far, I've booked a cancel-able B&B.  Once I've managed to move some bits and pieces to free up the Combe w/e, I'll be booking.

John - Honestly I think that there could be some resolution about accommodation before October (eternal optimism rules). The B&Bs around Castle Combe are great.

Bookings for the event now coming in - thanks to Dirk N - eight cars & twelve members. Only thirty two cars to go.
