***NEW FOR 2019*** CRMC’s debutant Classic Motorcycle Race Weekend brings two days of classic bike racing action to Castle Combe Circuit on 6–7 April.
Castle Combe Circuit is delighted to announce a brand-new partnership with the UK’s premier classic bike racing organiser – the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club (CRMC) – to launch the Classic Motorcycle Race Weekend event that will throwback to yesteryear when it takes over the circuit on 6–7 April.
With a rich heritage over the past 69 years, organisers from the 1.85-mile race track are delighted to be hosting such a meeting, which will see packed grids from various classes such as the Classic Era (1945–1972), Post-Classic (1973–1986) as well as the ever-popular Sidecars.
Managing Director of Castle Combe Circuit, Graham Marshallsay, commented on the announcement. “From research, we know that there’s a large amount of people that believe Castle Combe and classic bike racing go hand-in-hand. I believe there is no better place to feel nostalgic and watch these epic machines racing at such close proximity.”
Castle Combe will also continue to host the long-standing NG Motorcycle Grand National race meeting which has delighted the crowds for countless years. As the Grand National continues to grow with grids of more modern machinery, it left a gap for the much-loved classic bike racing scene. Now you can get your double-dose of motorcycle racing action with these large events occurring in both April and September this year.
John Davidson, Events Organiser of the CRMC, says: “We are very pleased to be visiting Castle Combe Circuit for the first time and grateful for the opportunity for the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club to race at this circuit. “
Over the coming months, more information (including race timetable and entries) can be found at www.bikesatcombe.com
Tickets are now on-sale for as little as £12/15 (senior/adult – subject to booking fee).
