Performance silicone hose world-leader, SamcoSport, has been confirmed as the main sponsor of Castle Combe Circuit’s 2020 Hot Hatch Challenge race series – the second consecutive year it has backed the popular championship.

Known for supplying range-topping hose solutions for cars, bikes and race machinery across the globe, the South Wales-based firm has worked closely alongside the Wiltshire racetrack for countless years, attending the majority of its major events and meetings with its quality parts also readily available through the circuit’s on-site motorsport shop, Merlin Motorsport.

Launching in 2017, Castle Combe’s SamcoSport Hot Hatch Challenge will enter its fourth successful year in 2020, never failing to attract large grids and being home to some of the most competitive racing in the country thanks to its numerous classes.

Phil Dowling, SamcoSport’s Sales Manager, was positive about the continued partnership: “We’re pleased to continue our sponsorship of the Hot Hatch Challenge and continue our long relationship with the Castle Combe Circuit. 2019 was a great year for the series and we’re looking forward to seeing some really close racing again in 2020 and building on our coverage of the drivers and their set-ups”

“It’s a true testament to Castle Combe’s Racing Club that this fantastic series seems to only be going from strength-to-strength,” Tom Davis, Castle Combe’s Head of Sales and Marketing, added. “To continue the partnership with such a world-renowned brand as SamcoSport for another year really is fantastic news for everyone involved.”
