With Round 4 coming up in the next couple of weeks we look though some of things we are looking forward too and some things we need to look at to maximise our time at Castle Combe
So where is the best place to watch all the action you say ?? well Mark from CarSceneUKMedia explains this due to this circuit being his home ground. To get the best seats in house and view the high speed action out on track is of course Camp Corner which is the last corner of the track before victory lane and across the line. this section all the way down to avon rise you can see speeds of 140MPH in the TCRUK Cars.
The Map Below will help you to see where each corner is but Quarry Corner could see some accidents and issues for some if they out brake themselfs and will go off track…
As with many British circuits, Castle Combe began life as an RAF airfield, built during World War Two as a training ground. It opened in 1941, with its perimeter road (now the race track) being laid around the grass runways in April 1943. One of the post-war landowners, Katherine Gorst, was married to chief designer for Frazer Nash Cars and the engine development man at Bristol Cars, so it was perhaps inevitable that the perimeter road was quickly identified as being suitable for motor racing. The first event, organised by the family and the Bristol Motorcycle and Light Car Club, took place in July 1950.
