First run in 1951, the Birkett is acknowledged to be the UK's largest annual motor race, offering six hours of racing on Silverstone's sensational Grand Prix Circuit in a relay format. Scheduled for October 22nd 2016, the Birkett usually sees a capacity grid of 70 teams in what's become one of British motor racing's longest-running traditions.
Drama, intrigue, chaos and pandemonium greeted the Castle Combe Racing Club as crowds flocked in their hundreds once more for the August Bank Holiday scorcher. Great battles a plenty filled the day with battles in each of the club’s championships while concern swept the entire circuit during the day after accidents for the guest Superkart Championship drivers Luke Plain and Roy Bennett with both receiving medical attention through the day. It added a sour note to a day that was already filled with near misses during qualifying, including a huge crash for Formula Ford 1600 racer Sam Street who destroyed his car against the Camp corner tyre barriers, with Street fortunately walking away unhurt. It merely set things up for a crazy day on the Wiltshire battleground.
