The UK basked in scorching weather this past weekend, which helped to make Castle Combe's Spring Action Day the place to be on Saturday 8th April!
Spring Action Day has already been proclaimed as the busiest to date, with almost 2000 club cars, countless modified motors and thousands of passionate fans descending on the Wiltshire circuit. Car clubs lie at the very heart of Spring Action Day; they make the event what it is and has always been, a fitting celebration of tuned, high performance cars of all shapes, sizes and eras, and represent the very best the UK's modified community has to offer. 2017 saw the biggest Spring Action Day turnout ever – quite an achievement when you remember that this is a long running show and a fixture of the Castle Combe calendar. The massive turnout ensured that there was no shortage of cars to be admired, with models representing every major car manufacturer in some form or another, all looking flawless and gleaming in the glorious, non-stop sunshine.
The track itself was a hive of non-stop action, all eagerly watched by the throngs of increasingly sun-singed spectators. A handful of bookable track sessions gave those in attendance the opportunity to experience one of Britain's fastest and most demanding circuits from the 'hot seat,' while dedicated drift demos at 12pm and 3pm entertained those unable or unwilling to head out onto the circuit for themselves. It all made for a compelling, high octane mix, the perfect centerpiece to an action-packed show like Spring Action Day.
THE OFFICIAL START TO THE PERFORMANCE CAR SEASON!
Gripping non-stop track action, awesome paddock displays, thrilling drifting demos, public track time & passenger rides – a real kick start to the year!

An incredibly popular fusion of a car show and track day! They give you the opportunity to meet like-minded enthusiasts, admire 1000s of cars on display and drive around the circuit at vastly discounted rates.
Yes & yes! You may be asked to produce it on request and sign our indemnity stating you have one
One front seat passenger is allowed to go out on a track session (sorry no one in the back!) They must sign on (it’s £5 for an all-day pass), be over 16, at least 5’ 2” and wearing a helmet with their arms & legs covers
Yes, from the Strawford Centre. It’s £5 per hour or £20 all day and we’ll need card details as a deposit. If you’re bringing your own it needs to be BS116658 or ECE22-05 spec.
If you have pre-bought your passes you need to have your car noise checked & attend a drivers briefing. Allow about an hour to get both these things done before your track session, especially first thing in the morning. If you’re buying passes or need to sign on as a passenger, head to the Strawford Centre in the main Paddock.
Action Day noise limit is 100dba measured at 0.5 metres from the exhaust at 4500 rpm. This is really strict due to local planning constraints. If you’re worried, go for a noise check first thing before buying your passes (otherwise there may be a charge if you buy a pass then find out you can’t use it!)
Worried about noise? Contact Merlin Motorsport: specialists in parts, spares & racewear based here in the paddock - 01249 782101 - www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk
Yes you do – you won’t get your drivers’ wristband without going! Remember to take your track pass with you as well
You’ll get your passes etc. from your secretary with all relevant information but in a nutshell;
NO! Racing is not permitted in any Action Day sessions. Overtaking is only permitted on the straight and on the right (i.e. on the inside of the track). Driving that it is felt is too fast or dangerous will be reported and risks you being asked to leave the circuit and/or be refused additional track sessions. We operate a ‘yellow card system’ with observers at each corner in radio contact with our Chief Safety Officer. They will report dangerous driving and that driver will be given a ‘yellow card’ when they exit the circuit. 2 yellow cards and we ban the car. Full details will be given in your briefing.
If you have problems and can’t use any of your track passes we’ll give you a partial refund if they’re brought back to us a minimum of two hours before, any later and there’s nothing we can do I’m afraid.
Castle Combe Circuit is covered by public liability insurance. This protects all our customers although it does not cover damage to you or your car, however caused, or liability from participant to participant. You use the circuit at your own risk. It is unlikely that your own insurance policy will cover circuit driving. You may be able to arrange insurance for damage to your car from specialist track day insurers.
If it’s safe the track will remain open.
