Discounted Club tickets available from Club HQ until August 31st
Castle Combe’s annual Autumn Classic Historic Racing Festival takes place this year on Saturday 7th October and we’ll again have a club stand with reserved parking for members and discounted entry tickets. With its 67 year history, Castle Combe Circuit has always provided excellent motor sporting entertainment with a reputation for lots of action and great value for money. In 2012 a simple idea for a 'Classic' themed meeting has developed into a runaway success with each event being bigger and with more attractions than the previous year.
With seven races there’s a host of fabulous racing machinery to see, from vintage sports cars to 1960’s single-seaters in the shape of the always entertaining Formula Juniors which Lotus dominated for so long. New to this year’s Autumn Classic is the GT and Sports Car Cup for pre-1966 GT and pre-1963 Sports Cars while the ever popular and crowd-pleasing 500cc Formula 3 cars return once again alongside pre-66 Jaguars, historic Aston Martins and a huge grid of 1950’s sports cars for the two-driver pit-stop Fiscar inter-marque race which will undoubtedly feature several Elites.
As if exciting classic car racing is not enough, there lots more to see at the Autumn Classic, including demonstration laps from some important historic race cars, plus special displays and parades. The whole circuit will be stepping back in time with numerous club stands, displays and period style aplenty. A highlight of the afternoon will be demonstration laps by a select group of historic racing cars. 2016 included the 1970’s lap-record holding McLaren F5000, a fabulous Ferrari GTO, the unique F1 4WD Ferguson and Stirling Moss’ Monaco GP winning Lotus 18.
We’ll have a stand in the Club Village with reserved parking for all members who book tickets from Club HQ. There’s also free paddock entry for everyone where you’ll find the Dream Garage housing a big selection of historic racecars, while nearby on the Tavern Lawn will be a further display of classic competition cars. There’s also special parades of classic and historic vehicles at lunchtime and for all the latest information see the Autumn Classic website www.autumnclassic.co.uk
