Castle Combe Racing Club is pleased that Motorsport U.K., has confirmed the issue of event permits from the end of March, which will once again allow the club to provide members and competitors with one of the first race meetings of the new season.
After consulting with our friends at HRDC, who were scheduled to provide 3 significant races at the Easter Howard’s Day meeting, we fully understand their reasons for now not attending, owing to the majority of their competitors travelling from various parts of the country and using hotel accommodation near the circuit. However, we are pleased that the HRDC will now bring these three popular races to the circuit in August.
Therefore, Howard’s Day race content is now confined to CCRC’s own GT, Saloon car and Formula Ford championships, together with the well-supported Hot Hatch series, to race in quick fire double-headers to commence their 2021 campaigns.
For one of the first post-lockdown-3 race meetings, this reduction in circuit time will allow the day’s timetable to commence later and finish earlier, meaning that competitors and officials from a predominantly smaller radius to the circuit, are now able to enjoy racing within a shorter day and, with more paddock space per head.
During the Easter Monday race day, Teams and Officials will continue to work at the circuit and paddock with the strict enforcement of current COVID-19 control measures already in place at the venue and as regulated by the U.K. Government.
For the second year running, we would acknowledge the hard work the small organizing team of Club and Circuit officials are providing in order to make Castle Combe’s first meeting of the season a success.
