REPERFORMANCE BECOMES TITLE SPONSOR OF CASTLE COMBE’S HIGH-SPEED FOLLY CORNER
Acclaimed Swindon-based supercar builder and tuning specialist, REPerformance, has been announced as the title sponsor of Castle Combe Circuit’s iconic Folly Corner for 2024.
Folly Corner is a kink half-way through the 1.85-mile circuit’s main straight, famously making it one of the highest-speed motorsport corners within the UK. Considering it takes a very capable vehicle and skilled driver to get the most out of Folly Corner, it seemed the perfect match for REPerformance, who prides itself on ‘building insanely powerful supercars’ within its cutting-edge HQ.
The partnership means that REPerformance-branded boarding will take pride of place at Folly Corner, as well as other key areas of the venue. Already holding a close relationship with Castle Combe before the deal was signed, REPerformance will also continue to benefit from further circuit hire days throughout the year, to carry out more of its renowned high-speed testing and customer experience track day events on one of the fastest race tracks in the country.
Another close connection between Castle Combe Circuit and REPerformance is the fact that REPerformance’s director, Ricky Elder, often races superbikes at the track, most recently in NG Road Racing’s Open 600 series (which he finished second in in 2023). Elder is an ex-NG Road Racing champion in the 600s, and also continues to enter various rounds of BSB elsewhere in the country.
Max Symonds, the circuit’s Commercial Manager is optimistic about the partnership commenting that “REPerformance are the perfect match for Folly Corner and we are looking forward to having the branding up at the circuit and working with the REPerformance team closely over the coming season.”
Ricky Elder, REPerformance’s director, was equally excited about the partnership. “When the opportunity arose to have our name placed at Folly Corner, we just couldn’t say no! Like our business ethos when building insanely powerful supercars, you need full commitment, high skill and an unflinching bravery to maximise performance and in this case, lap time. As a superbike racer, it is quite simply the best corner in Britain! Hold it flat and send it in!”
