Club Lotus

Published - Thursday, 24 January 2013


Our May trackday at Combe has always been one of the most enjoyable events of the year and we really want to re-establish this day as a great Club Lotus day out as well as a good value and safe Lotus trackday. Those of you who came to Castle Combe last year enjoyed a fantastic day in the sunshine with plenty of track time and no race transporters cluttering up our paddock and display areas.

The same is guaranteed for this year as the Castle Combe management have changed their rules and NO race cars, transporters or motor homes will be allowed in the paddock after 5.00pm on Friday evening. A completely empty paddock solely for our use on Saturday will allow us to create the spectacle our Castle Combe day has always been. Come along to drive, learn, watch, chat, meet friends and have a great day out with plenty of Lotus cars and enthusiasts.

Track driving sessions are just £96 which gives you two guaranteed 15 minute sessions and then as much more track time as you can manage when we go to open pit lane from around 2.30pm. We only have 12 cars on the track per session so there’s plenty of room to drive at your own pace and of course only Lotus cars are allowed on track so good manners are assured.

To book call us on 01362 694459 / 691144 or email annemarie@clublotus.co.uk or jane@clublotus.co.uk but PLEASE CALL SOON as we’d hate you to be disappointed. If there’s a group of you who want to go out together that’s no problem and if there’s 12 cars together you can have an exclusive 15 minute session.

Free professional instruction is available from the resident Castle Combe instructors and crash helmets can be hired FOC on the day. Only Lotus cars are allowed on track and whilst there’s no speed limits we insist on good driving standards and behaviour so that everybody can enjoy themselves safely at their own pace.

There will be plenty of room for our regular historic Lotus display and for all our individual model groups to park together, get the picnic out and enjoy a great day’s entertainment. Combe is in a beautiful part of the country and has first class facilities, the best racetrack restaurant in the UK and plenty of good spectator viewing areas on the high grass banks around the circuit.

During the lunch break we’ll have a track parade of historic Lotus cars and everyone who arrives in a Lotus will also be invited to take part in our FREE lunchtime parade lap sessions - no helmets are required and passengers are allowed. As usual we’ll also be running fast lap charity rides in Elise trophy racecars and some other special Lotus cars in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust .  

We’re also offering FREE autojumble spaces for members so bring your unwanted spares along and make some cash. If you want to buy anything from our Club Shop just pre-order from Club HQ and we’ll bring it down for you to collect and save postage.

Please come along, join in the fun and enjoy a memorable day out with us at Castle Combe.
