    Wow, great pictures & vids. Although it appears that you were all suffering with roof closing issues

    The lunch time parade & if you want, paid fast laps, is where Castle Coombe wins over Stoneleigh. It would be brilliant if this was to become a two day sleep over event.

    Counting the days til next year.

    Despite the weather i found it really warm in the car driving round the track . but then, there was the obligatory pose while passing the spectators.

    I remember the kit car action days at CC back in the mid-90s, great fun! I hope this event helps to re-kindle some of that excitement. Were the track activities all behind a pace car, or was there some open track action?

    Hi Lauren. if you hang back at the rear of the pack you get to do some catching up especially if you do it just before the long straight. Mick the track master showed me this on my first trip to combe a couple of years ago. if i remember right i think we touched around 80mph.

    Indeed! My speedo needle hit 75mph which is actually around 80mph. We played cool waving at the crowd and raising roofs until the boy racers had all gone past and then had fun at the back of the pack.

    There were also paid fast sessions - search around on You Tibe and you will see the Saxo that got it very wrong - there is even a video of him being towed away
    All the best,

    Lol...best laid plans....but wait till you go around a corner in a Nova at speed before making too many plans for lots of horse power. It doesn't matter how you throw a sledge hammer the heavy hammer end will always end up going first......and its not much different with a rear engined Nova.... I learnt the hard way! ....and one of those times was with an air cooled engine
