Had a great Supercar Saturday at Castle Combe with me old petrol head mate Mr Stok, in support of the stroke association.
With 70+ cars spanning multiple generations, Stok was seduced by the Ford GT40 (apparently it reminded him of a memorable tour to Le Mans in his youth) and he never ceases to amaze me with his detailed technical knowledge of what seems to be any car, any variant and any age and to make matters worse he arrived to collect me in his recently acquired Monte Carlo Blue, BMW M5!
Castle Combe is a quintessentially English village often named as the ‘prettiest village in England.’ The village sits in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north west Wiltshire and has featured regularly as a film location and of course Bath,a world heritage site is less than 15 minutes away.
On the edge of the village is the Castle Combe Circuit where drivers have the opportunity to test out different vehicles, drive your own car or motorbike around the circuit or tackle the Rally course. There are also a host of events throughout the year at the circuit including race days for both cars and motorbikes.
There are several options for places to stay in and around Castle Combe with Bed and Breakfasts, self-catering properties and inns. It is also within easy reach of Chippenham and Corsham, and not far away from the M4 motorway.
