Autumn Classic returns to Castle Combe

3 March 2017

Castle Combe Circuit has announced that the Autumn Classic historic race meeting – now in its 6th year – will be held on Saturday 7 October 2017, with the addition of the GT and Sports Car Cup.

This invitation only series brings some of the most celebrated pre-1966 GT and sports cars from all over Europe, including lightweight Jaguar E Types, Ferrari 250 GT Berlinettas, Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2s and Morgan Plus 4 SLRs. The addition of the Cup to the programme categorically seals the event as a must attend event for all classic race enthusiasts.

Long standing supporter of the Autumn Classic Bristol Forklifts is joined this year by David Hathaway Transport, Silicon Hoses and Spencer Lane-Jones.

The circuit’s newly-launched website has all the details, including details of more owners’ and enthusiasts’ club displays than ever before – including a run from the 1970s lap record-holding Formula 5000 McLaren.

In addition to the action provided by the eclectic mix of races, visitors will be treated to parades and on-track demonstrations from some of the priceless pedigree cars from the golden era of motorsport.

Ken Davies, chairman of the Castle Combe Racing Club, said: “The Autumn Classic has cemented itself into the UK’s Historic racing calendar since it first ran in 2012. Each year its portfolio of close racing, together with the mouth-watering selection of iconic display cars, increases in variety and quality.

“Illustrating the rich heritage of the circuit is the list of the household names of motor racing who have successfully raced at ‘Combe’ over the years including Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn, Damon Hill, Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell.”
