Thanks for the offer of help Jonathan. I have started a separate Malmesbury camping list so as not to clutter up this thread ;-) I'm sure a helpful moderator will put all the separate CC threads into one folder (as per the Donington days) for ease of use nearer the time

I keep coming back to this thread and umming and arring on joining in the fun. Before I do though thought I'd go into
Castle Combe website and see what's happening https://castlecombecircuit.co.uk/events/

It appears that nothing is shown on calendar for weekend 26/27 May 2018. So I got on their chatline and asked the
question. They came back and stated that nothing was planned for that weekend.

Am I missing something here?

It could be a cock up Trevor, but I've been going to this event every year since 1990 and its always been on the Saturday of the second bank holiday weekend in May. I'd be amazed if Club Lotus and Castle Combe don't just roll on the booking from one year to the next, but if you've spoken to someone at the circuit and they say nothing is on then I guess it isn't booked yet. I'm sure that there will also be race meeting (nothing to do with Lotus) on the Monday, there always is, so I'm surprised you weren't told about that. If you want to check for sure, I suggest you contact Alan or one of the girls at Club Lotus since its their day....

Initially, I was just 'guessing' at the event date (based on it always being the Saturday of the last BH weekend).

But there was confirmation of it in the last quaterly magazine I got through the post from CL.

Booking forms for the track day will be included in the January magazine.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Alan Morgan confirmed to me that this was on when I spoke to him at the Festival at Brands in September.

I think you were polishing your car at the time Trevor :lol:

Castle Combe confirmed by Club Lotus as Sat. 26 May so get your garage queens ready. Track driving packages are still £99 for 2 fixed sessions in the morning plus open pit lane from 1400

Call Jane at Club Lotus (01362 694459) for further info.

Free lunchtime parades. No helmets required. And if its anything like last year there are no real restrictions apart from driving hard but safely

PS bring spare pants Phil if you're in my passenger seat again. Same for Dapinky if you allow Nick to drive you round the circuit in 5th gear :lol: :lol:

Spare pants not needed, you stayed well within the capabilities of the Elan - I didn't even hear the tyres squeak!

I've got some work coming up on a contract in Slough that runs to September so I'll be well placed to come down Friday evening and will probably go back to Slough Sunday evening... is there racing on Sunday? Answer = NO it's on BH Monday 28th.

Does mean I won't have time to sort the Eclat or +2 so have to be M100 again.. I'll add myself to the list ...

1. Clemo . S2 613 Jim Clark ( camping) ( camping / shez pinky? ) set up friday , SAT & SUN .
