Swindon-based Honda of the UK Manufacturing has confirmed its attendance to Castle Combe Circuit’s highly-anticipated ‘May Day Madness’ race meeting, set to be held at the Wiltshire venue on bank holiday Monday, 6 May.
The car manufacturing giant will once again be making the pilgrimage to its local circuit to support the Dave Allan Trophy Race – one of many long-established competitions held during the day that pays tribute to the ex-Honda UK test driver who tragically died whilst testing a new vehicle back in 2012.
From its large ‘Honda Village’ stand that will be laid out in the paddock area, show-goers can expect displays from motorcycle stunt rider, Steve Colley, simulation racing experiences from The Racing Bug (that feature miniature Honda touring cars), as well as offering the likes of official Honda merchandise and much more.
Tom Davis, Castle Combe Circuit’s Head of Sales and Marketing, commented on the news. “It’s great to have Honda of the UK Manufacturing heading back to the circuit once again to support another of our ever-popular race meetings. We’re really proud to call HUM our neighbours and can’t wait to see what attractions they bring along with them this time around.”
Alyn James, Team Principal at Honda of the UK Manufacturing’s in-house race team, Synchro Motorsport, was equally-as-positive about the news. “We’re incredibly excited to return to Castle Combe once again this year and to be able to bring a lot of fun, interactive activities as part of the Honda Village. Combe always feels like a home race for us and we are pleased to continue our partnership with the circuit.”
May Day Madness, held on the 6 May, is the second incredibly popular race meeting event to be held at Castle Combe Circuit in 2019, hosting nine legs of racing from various action-packed series such as the Castle Combe Saloon Car Championship and the TVR Classics. Advanced tickets are available now, priced at £15 per adult/£10 per senior. As always, accompanied children aged 16 or under go free.
