Castle Combe Circuit Racing School Instructor and Pirelli F1 Trackside Engineer, Peter Mabon, will be the special guest for this week’s live Combe TV episode, scheduled to be streamed on Thursday, 18 February at 7pm.
Presented by commentator, Chris Dawes and the circuit’s Sales and Marketing Director, Tom Davis, Peter will be on hand to discuss his fascinating life surrounded by motorsport so far, both at Combe and around the globe.
Starting his colourful career by racing Formula Fords, Scotland-born Mabon eventually moved off the track and into the pits in the early ‘90s, proceeding to act as a tyre fitter/truckie/engineer for a number of large national and international championships.
Following a 15-year stint with Avon Tyres (which brought him down to his current home of Wiltshire), Mabon progressed to a role as Pirelli F1 Trackside Engineer in 2011 with the likes of Red Bull and Mercedes F1 teams – a job he continues with to this day, currently working with the Aston Martin team (formerly Racing Point) for the 2021 season.
While he’s not caught up in the F1 circus, Mabon acts as an instructor at the Racing School at his local Castle Combe Circuit.
