Are you looking for a track day in the South West?
Are you looking for a track day at Castle Combe Motor Racing Circuit?
Are you wanting to experience the thrill of taking your own car around a proper race track?
Are you wanting to increase your high speed driving skills safely and under a controlled environment?
Would you possibly like the one-to-one tuition of a Racing Instructor in your car either demonstrating how to drive well around a race circuit, or giving you instruction as you drive your car around the circuit?
Do you want to do all of this without selling your car to pay for it? Well, look no further….
Each year, the Bristol Pegasus Motor Club hires Castle Combe circuit and all that comes with it so 60 cars of all shapes, sizes, ages and performance trot up for a bright and early start of 8.00am and enjoy the circuit for the day. The cars go through Scrutineering, max 100db noise (see booking information for more details), the drivers are briefed, and the tickets handed out.
£155 for non-members and £145 for members, buys the driver 4 sessions out on the track with a group of 12 cars (a group of 6 cars for beginners/slower cars) for a maximum of 5 laps a time. If the weather is good and everything runs smoothly, additional runs can be had towards the end of the day – close at 5pm.
The main attractions of the day are that:
- Drivers can go & drive their own car around a race circuit
- FREE one to one tuition from a top instructor is available
- The number of Cars on track is limited – there is plenty of space and as the day is aimed at club members drivers are sensible
- No extra charge is made for Passengers but they must sign on
- Unlike commercial Track Days the event is organised by fellow enthusiasts for enjoyment not profit
The day is NOT a race day; the day is a chance for drivers to enjoy their cars and to improve their driving skills in the safe environment of a controlled circuit.
When and Where?
The event takes place at Castle Combe Racing Circuit, Chippenham.
THE 2023 EVENT IS ON SATURDAY 19th AUGUST
Although the event is organised by The Bristol Pegasus Motor Club, we do invite other motor clubs along for the day. We have a good relationship with the Mini Cooper Register who have attended the event for a number of years. We have a great deal of regulars, and also a refreshing amount of new drivers each year wishing to increase their driving skills in a controlled environment on a motor racing circuit. We have a great deal of interest in the on site driving instructor who is part of the days fees. Please note entry priority is given to BPMC members.
What types of cars take part?
This is the great thing about the day. As long as your vehicle has a valid MOT, Taxed, has road tyres and passes Scrutineering, it can go out on the track (see regulations for more details). Remember this day is not a race; it is an organised event to increase your driving skills and test your car. As a result, we have a vast array of different cars. Historically, the Mini Cooper Register bring um…. Minis, but we have a great presence of Westfield, MG and Lotus cars. But also we have the “normal” side of motoring too. People bring their family cars along too. We have even had diesel estates!
What about passengers?
Absolutely! Minimum age of 16. Maximum one passenger per car.
Both drivers and passengers must sign an indemnification form.
