During this unprecedented period of uncertainty in the UK and beyond, the Castle Combe Circuit team is livening things up for motorsport fans with ‘Combe TV’ – a Facebook Live show that airs every Wednesday and Sunday at 7pm.
Hosted by Sales and Marketing Director, Tom Davis, and the circuit’s leading commentator, Chris Dawes, Combe TV invites special guests along as the hosts discuss all things Castle Combe and motorsport.
We’re pleased to announce that we have now RESCHEDULED the chat with iconic racing couple, Brian and Ilsa Cox, to Wednesday, 29 April!
ABOUT BRIAN AND ILSA COX
This Hove-based duo is incredibly well-known within the Castle Combe racing fraternity, and for all the right reasons.
Spanning the likes of the GT Championship and Saloon Car Championship at the Wiltshire venue over the multiple decades they’ve been competing, both Brian and Ilsa have racked up more than their fair share of victories between them.
Affectionately dubbed the ‘Queen of Combe’ (although she is far too humble to accept such a title), Ilsa has over 30 years’ racing experience under her belt, having achieved a total of 78 overall or class victories and 58 class pole positions within this time.
In 2018, she won the Castle Combe GT Championship for the second year running, also finding time to clinch the CTCRC’s Thunder Championship in the same year. These successes come after a colourful history of racing which also includes her winning the Castle Combe Saloon Car Championship in 1997.
Brian’s time on track began in the mid-‘60s in various saloon car series, which marked the start of an almost 50-year career behind the wheel. During this time, he was able to achieve such successes as Hot Hatch Championship winner in 2007 (with Ilsa coming a very close second), as well as winning Class A in Combe’s Saloon Car Championship in 2010.
Although Brian retired from racing in 2012, Ilsa continues to pilot the duo’s beloved ‘Henri Cupra’ – a SEAT Leon Cupra that is kept in meticulous condition by the family.
