About Us

ONE OF THE UK’S MOST HISTORIC AND LOVED CIRCUITS

Founded in 1950, Castle Combe Circuit now offers a packed calendar of non-stop white-knuckle action across two and four-wheeled machines, as well as a variety of non-motoring based events.

The on-track activities can be viewed from around the entire circuit in a setting of stunning scenery that is of easy access to anyone in the South West and beyond.

 

ACTION, SHOW, AND RACE EVENTS

Car and motorcycle race meetings offer back-to-back racing action from start to finish, as drivers and riders from various home and guest series battle it out for the top spot. Whilst event days showcase some of the most exotic and exciting vehicles with displays in the paddock and around the track, including stunt demonstrations, vehicle exhibitions, and drifting.

 

TRACK DAYS

Castle Combe Circuit offers motorcycle and car trackdays that are open to anyone with a driving license and a vehicle that is to MOT standards and meets the circuit noise restrictions.

This is a chance to experience speeds and cornering that is simply not possible on public roads in a safe and controlled manner, with the opportunity to ride or drive without restrictions on speed but within personal limits and the track regulations.

PRIVATE HIRE

Castle Combe Circuit offers opportunities for private hire of the track throughout the season if individuals or a club would like to arrange their own event here.

 

EXPERIENCES

A fleet of circuit and rally course-based experience days give customers the chance to take the wheel and hone their skills in a wide range of impressive machinery, all with the support of a professional instructor.

The outdoor kart circuit has fast challenging corners and with 200cc karts averaging speeds of up to 30mph making it a serious step up from indoor karting.

Skid pan courses offer a realistic and effective process of learning skid control techniques and the ideal safe environment to test your handling skills.

 

OTHER EVENTS

It’s not just about motoring here at Castle Combe Circuit: we also offer a range of other events and services including cycling, live music, car boot sales, corporate events and much more.

 

REBRANDING AND NEW DEVELOPMENTS

Castle Combe Circuit is starting an exciting period over the next few years with big developments and improvements across the venue alongside a full rebranding of the Castle Combe brand.

This work has already begun with signage going up around the circuit displaying the new branding, a new retail shop being opened with a large range of high-quality merchandise again showcasing the new brand, and on-site development works being started including plans for a new entrance, a diverse new array of food stalls, a redesigned and busier trader area and safer traffic/pedestrian flow around the entire site.

This is just the beginning of an exciting future for Castle Combe Circuit as we focus on modernising and improving what the circuit has to offer to propel it to become one of the most modern and cutting-edge motorsport venues in the country.
