RALLYDAY XL – WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR

Rallyday – Castle Combe Circuit’s much-loved event celebrating all things rallying – returns as the two-day ‘Rallyday XL’ festival for 2024, set to be held on 28-29 September at the Wiltshire motorsport venue.

As well as all the usual rallying-based excitement expected both on and off the 1.85-mile circuit, Rallyday XL will also bring with it a number of all-new attractions across the two days, cementing its title as Europe’s premier rally show.

Although many details are yet to be unveiled, below is a handy guide as to what you can expect from the weekend so far. Stay tuned for many more huge updates coming up ahead of the event, too…

The full stage service area will be open to the public across the event, so you can soak up that competitive rallying atmosphere for yourself!

Both Bath Motor Club and Castle Combe Circuit are pleased to announce the introduction of the Stage Rally sponsor, David Appleby Engineering. DAE is no stranger to motorsport, and with over 40 years’ experience, has an enviable reputation within the motorsport industry.
