Castle Combe Circuit opened in 1950 on the site of an old World War 2 airbase. Since then it has been transformed in to one of the leading circuits in the United Kingdom and has the reputation of attracting the best crowds in national motorsport. Over the last 56 years, most of the great names in motor racing have competed around Castle Combe's challenging corners including names like Stirling Moss, Nigel Mansell, Ayrton Senna and David Coulthard.

For spectators, Castle Combe offers probably the best value in the area. With free admission for under 15 year olds and adult tickets ranging in price from just £12, it means that a family of 4 can enjoy up to 10 races on an action packed day for just £24.

Parking is free and each of the principle corners offers fine viewing for over half of the circuit.

A modern fleet of Ford Fiesta's, Formula Ford Racing cars, Lotus Elise and Ford Focus ST2, plus fast passenger rides in a Ferrari or as a complete contrast the Rally special stage.
