Around 1,000 cars are expected on the day ranging from Jaguar E-types, a Daimler Dart, an Alvis Single Eagle, various Marcos to Lotus Elites.

The Castle Combe Circuit will be working with Richard Bishop Motorsport who will be providing cars and drivers to help raise funds for the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.

For 2012 there few extras to ensure there really is something for everyone. Cadbury's Crème Egg Car will be there, though not certain to be lapping the circuit. Local businessman Ian Wallace will be bringing along his 1959 Austin A35 which, apart from the colour, is a life size replica of Wallace's Anti-Pesto van that starred in ‘Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’. 

Homemaker Events will bring its Vintage Trade Marquee and Flea Market. This is a large marquee housing a range of exhibitors from vintage automobilia to art deco jewellery, vintage picnic hampers and more.
