CASTLE COMBE CIRCUIT DEVELOPS TRACK SAFETY PROGRAMME WITH APPOINTMENT OF NEW TRACK MANAGER
Wiltshire’s Castle Combe Circuit is undertaking a comprehensive development of its track safety programme with the recent employment of full-time Track Manager, Steve Weston.
Working with sister outfit, Castle Combe Racing Club, for almost 30 years in many roles including most recently as Competitions Director, Weston brings with him an unparalleled wealth of knowledge regarding the much-loved 1.85-mile circuit.
Weston’s initial priority as Track Manager is to review every aspect of the venue’s track safety, ensuring drivers, racers, organisers and marshals are fully up-to-speed when it comes to guidelines relating to the high-speed circuit.
The improvements will positively affect all track activity, from track days through to Action Day shows and even competitive racing events, and are likely to involve ensuring the likes of briefings and maximum vehicle numbers are all as controlled and up-to-date as possible.
Steve Weston commented on the news. “Having been involved at Castle Combe for 30-plus years, I am now hopefully in a position to make some positive changes in my new role. Working within the new management structure, I relish the challenges ahead.”
Graham Marshallsay was equally as optimistic about the appointment. “Steve’s new role will be a massive step forward for on-track activity here at Castle Combe. With him on board, the positive changes out on track will reflect the huge amount of work elsewhere around the venue.”
