Kicking up white clouds of smoke and shredding countless rear tyres, the drifting displays held at all of Castle Combe’s acclaimed Action Day events are always a sure-fire winner for the audiences present.

And now, the Wiltshire venue is looking for a team of talented drift drivers and their cars to form the Castle Combe Drift Team that will perform across the six Action Day events set to be held across the year.

Applications are now being taken for this exciting opportunity – which will require you to fill in the form found on the below website. Applicants MUST have suitable drifting experience (ideally at competition level), as well as a suitable car (that boasts a roll cage, bucket seats and harnesses at a minimum).

If successful, you’ll be contacted 4–6 weeks before your chosen event(s) and sent a Drift Car Pass that admits car, driver and up to three passengers into the relevant show. Each event holds a minimum of 2 x 30-minute drifting demos. Throughout the rest of the day, the drift cars will have a static display area in the main paddock.

2019’s Action Day events are as follows:

Spring Action Day – 30 March
Pure Ford – 27 April (Ford cars only)
JDMCombe – 1 June (Japanese cars only)
Summer Action Festival – 22 June
Forge Action Day – 7 September
Action Day Finale – 12 October
