Experience a Castle Combe Race Meeting like no other, where the corners usually taken by cars at 100mph are done on two wheels at over 160mph! It’s the only event of its kind here at Castle Combe where you can watch 20 races each day!
Without doubt this year’s Grand National race meeting will be the biggest bike meeting since we ran the non-championship superbike races in 2004 and the line-up of bikes and riders in Sunday’s special Mike Hailwood commemoration parades gets better almost by the day. And of course the parades are just part of a fabulous weekend of motorcycle racing run by our friends at the NG Road Racing Club.
Feature races on both Saturday and Sunday will be rounds of the British 125cc & 250c Championships while the Bonham’s British Historic Championships will highlight the classic feel of the meeting. Add in another 15 or so races for just about every solo class right up the King of Castle Combe open class and it’s easy to see why the meeting has a growing reputation for one of the most popular outside of BSB.
Races include: F125, Supermono, 500cc Open, F400, Formula ProStocks, Newcomers, Mini Twins, Pre-injection/pre2001 – up to 700cc, Pre – injection/pre2001 -701cc -1300cc, 250/125 GP ACU National, Formula ProStocks, 700 Streetstocks, Super Twins, 1300Streetstock, Desmo Dues, Phoenix Open, 600cc Open, Sound of Thunder, Powerbike
And then we have the Classic & Specials parades with some 50 bikes on track and making a great display in the paddock.
But it’s the Tribute to the GOAT that has really set the meeting as special. Debate will forever rage about the greatest of all time title. Hailwood or Rossi, but to honour Mike Hailwood 60 years after his first Castle Combe Race is a privilege and we are very grateful for the family’s support and enthusiasm. What started as a comment at the end of last year’s meeting has become something very special---as one well known motorcycle racing journalist recently commented “I’ve never seen a Hailwood Tribute like this before”
