Take your seat at Castle Combe Circuit
A short way north of Bath, Castle Combe Circuit is a well-reputed racing circuit surrounded by bucolic Wiltshire countryside, boasting an active calendar of Saloon, Sports and GT, and Formula Ford events.

Welcome to Bath
A town so steeped in history that it’s a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bath is a wonderful place to explore for those visiting the area. During the Roman occupation of Britain, the resident Romans took advantage of the natural hot springs in the area, using them to construct their impressive baths. The ruins of these, not to mention countless other historical sites spanning antiquity, are still there, and give Bath a potent, distinctive character that’s shared by few other places in Britain.
