A2 Licence: Participation in New-to-track sessions only (unless you also have a full ACU license, in which case you are able to join any group)

Why are the noise limits so tight?
Our limits are set by our local authority, and are part of our planning permission. Failure to comply could result in the cancellation of the day.

What if my bike fails the noise test?
You MUST have your bike sound checked prior to taking to the track. If your machine fails, we will refund your fee less an administration charge of £20. If, however, you use the circuit and later in the day your machine fails the sound test (we have to monitor noise continuously), then no refund will be given.

Can I bring a racing bike?
The answer is "No", unless it is a production based class strictly within our noise regulations. The days are not intended as testing for racers, but a chance to ride your road/sports bike quickly in a safe environment.

Can I turn up on the day?
No, our days are generally fully booked.and we don't sell on places if someone doesn't turn up or experiences mechanical or accidental damage during the day.  

Where our days are fully booked, we do have a reserve list, but being on this reserve list doesn't guarantee you a place. We will be in contact prior to the day if a space becomes available.

What if it is wet?
We hope it's dry, but we do carry on in the wet and we do not give refunds because of the weather as long as the day can continue safely.

What shall I wear?

1 or 2 piece leathers are required (if 2-piece, they MUST zip together). You must also have a full face helmet, motorcycle boots and gloves.

Is timing permitted?
No, timing is strictly prohibited at all Castle Combe Circuit Track Days.
