Castle Combe 2010 Action Days Announced

Fri, 27 Nov 2009

Castle Combe Circuit is pleased to announce its Action Day dates for 2010 and - after a record year in 2009 - the same successful format will be repeated.

The Action Day season opens on Saturday 24 April 2010, with the Performance Car Action Day. This opening event has sold out for the last three years, with well over 100 clubs representing almost every type of performance car applying for stand space and track passes. Enthusiasts took advantage of some of the most cost-effective track time to explore the performance limits of their cars. Back for 2010 with more cars will be a drifting display, plus special sessions for high-performance cars and new-to-track drivers.

Classic and sports car fans are invited on Saturday 12 June 2010 for their own, dedicated event. Showing its diverse appeal, already 50 Morris Minors are promised and will be taking advantage of the Giant Classic Lunchtime Cruise. In the sports car area, we will be celebrating the Japanese sports car, with significant anniversaries for both the MR2 and MX5 Clubs.

The central display will feature "Cars are the music stars" and we are looking for enthusiasts with vehicles with car models which are featured in music.  So if you have a silver Thunderbird, a red Corvette, or perhaps a big yellow taxi, then come and display it.

Saturday 4 September 2010 sees the return of the Ajec Racing Summer Performance Car Action Day. With support from Ajec Racing, one of the west country's leading suppliers of tuning parts and responsible for the preparation and tuning of the Castle Combe Saloon Car Championship lap record-holding car, Ajec will bring their own blend of displays and fun to what in 2009 proved to be the fastest-expanding day of the year. With the promised display of exciting super cars, a drifting display, and the Ajec Parade (which features cars worth literally millions of pounds), there is much to look at as well as enjoy the track time.

Closing the Action Day season for 2010 will be "Mini World" supported Mini Action Day on Saturday 25 September. With the 50th Anniversary of the Mini in 2009, new Mini events sprung up everywhere, but that didn't stop Mini World Action Day from being the biggest and best ever, proving the popularity of this well-established event. Back again will be the Mini Cruise, with special displays and attractions planned.

Castle Combe Action Days have been established for almost 25 years and offer clubs, groups and organisations the chance to apply for free display space, free admission tickets and the chance to drive on Castle Combe Circuit at heavily-reduced prices. For enthusiasts, there is a chance to experience driving on a circuit for a modest amount and - at the same time - enjoy the atmosphere these events create, mixing with like-minded enthusiasts, viewing the many displays, wandering the trade stands and picking up a bargain in the Autojumble area which operates during some days.
