Castle Combe revs up for Rallyday

Takes place this Saturday, 1 July at the Wiltshire Circuit

This year’s Castle Combe Rallyday takes place this Saturday, 1 July at the Wiltshire Circuit, with organisers saying “its set to be the biggest and most exciting yet.”

Castle Combe Rallyday is a haven for rallying devotees, petrolheads of any types, those curious about what it’s like to try and control a car “on the loose” and anyone who is simply looking for a great day out.

Rally legends are there in force – whether petrol driven, or petrol driving – and, as well as an incredible selection of rally cars from throughout the decades, ranging from club favourites through to supercars of the Group B and modern rallying eras, there will be some truly stellar names in action behind the wheel.

Castle Combe Rallyday

Star names include the 1984 World Rally Champion, Stig Blomqvist, multiple British Rally Champion, Jimmy McRae, European Rally Champion Chris Ingram and 1990 Ladies World Rally Champion Louise Aitken Walker. They are joined by former World Rally Champion Co-driver Nicky Grist and British Rally Champion Dai Llewellin, together with his son, current rally star Tom.

Top TV Rally presenter and commentator, Julian Porter, together with, Hollie McRae – 1995 World Champion Colin McRae’s daughter – who, while Grandad Jimmy is out on stage, will be on interview duty throughout Rallyday  – as will be Castle Combe Rallyday regulars, Howard Davies and Martin Bennett.

To add a further spectacular dimension to Rallyday, Guinness World Record stunt driver, the iconic Terry Grant, will be performing for the crowds. Grant is known for his jaw-dropping stunts behind the wheel of a huge range of vehicles, some of which he will be demonstrating, in spectacular fashion at various corners around the track – thrilling visitors, as only he can, with his incredible car control.

Adding to the already-impressive list of cars, stars and attractions, the event will also play host to a large number of car clubs. Amongst these there will be special celebrations to mark the 60th birthday of the mighty Hillman Imp – a model with a hugely successful rallying career across the globe. The Imp Club will present its tribute with a large club stand in the main paddock area which will boast various examples of the rear-engined car – in road and rallying forms – including Andrew Cowan’s genuine ex-works rally car. Club members will also take to the 1.85-mile circuit for an unmissable display parade.

If you’ve always wanted to take part in Rallyday, but you’ve never had the chance – or you don’t own a rally car – you can now drive one of Castle Combe’s specially-prepared Rally School cars on the venue’s loose surface rally stage! Rear Wheel Drive BMW Compacts or Front Wheel Drive Toyota Celicas are available with which to drive two laps, plus those who sign up will be driven on an orientation lap of the loose surface rally stage, to get a feel for it before they set off and it’s only £40! Fast track sessions and passenger rides are also available.

In addition, there will be a trade village, numerous food and drink concessions and the new Castle Combe Shop will be open throughout.

With all this, and the promise of non-stop action promised on the 1.85-mile racetrack, tickets to this event have sold fast, but visitors are still welcome. Adult admission costs £30 on the day, with Children under 16s admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
