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 Chat’ – 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 Chat invites special guests along as the hosts discuss all things Castle Combe and motorsport.
Announced for the next show on Wednesday, 1 April, is VP Racing Fuels’ Europe Business Development Consultant, Peter Coleman. Peter boasts an impressive background in the motorsport industry with close links to the Wiltshire venue.
ABOUT PETER COLEMAN
Starting as a volunteer marshal at Oulton Park, Coleman next found a job in his gap year running track days up and down the country. After university, he joined a company which ran European tours and track festivals, taking clients to circuits such as the Nürburgring, Monza and Spa-Francorchamps.
After this, Coleman took a few years out of motorsport to focus on an international sales role, before returning as Head of International at the Motorsport Industry Association [MIA]. Coleman’s positions since have also included Brand Manager for Northern Europe at Bridgestone Tyres, and a role with the company that owned Armor All and STP.
Joining VP Racing Fuels in 2018 to handle business development within Europe, Coleman’s current position is a mixture of sales efforts and marketing activation, which sees him working with countless circuits and venues throughout the UK and beyond to help increase notoriety of the brand and its distribution across the continent.
Away from the day job, Coleman still writes for the BRDC Bulletin and lap-chart for Russell Douglas and Chris Hartley, including 10 years at Becketts for the British Grand Prix.
