Away From the Track

However, the Autumn Classic has become synonymous with much more than white-knuckle racing, with the event inviting attendees to don their finest vintage outfits and soak up the historic displays around the show grounds as the circuit turns back the clock.

This time around, as well as unique vehicle displays commemorating various anniversaries, you can expect suitably retro stage music from the Bren Jones Big Band and vintage cabaret dancing from the Flaming Feathers troupe.

Vintage Buses

The Bristol Vintage Bus Group will once again be bringing some of their finest historic buses to the event from the local area and beyond. Enjoy a ride around the circuit – stay tuned for announcements on the day for more details.

Trade Village

As with all Castle Combe shows, there will also be a thriving Trade Village area and a sea of display vehicles spread out over several dedicated car clubs.
