I thought the Autumn Classic had been on the 2012 schedule since the beginning of the year running as one day of a two day weekend coupled with the Castle Combe Championships Finals.

Anyway, the line up on the CCRC website looks like it could be a good one.

The circuit had a media day yesterday promoting this meeting so maybe this is where the news came from. It has always been on the cards since the events calendar was released. Really looking forward to it !

Ah, that explains the Classics running round in the lunch break on the test day. We saw/heard them from the kart track.

So where abouts in Wiltshire are you Brands?

I looked at the races and thought I could enter the Combe Classic race...blast, the 924 is three years too late. Back to the drawing board!

Northern side of Trowbridge.

I do like Combe as it's my local track, plus there are still a few spots to shoot from the public side that aren't fenced off. Seems to be running more classic/historic meetings, which is fine by me (although not all the Combe crowd would agree).

Al, really looking forward to this meetiing, especially Bernies V8s. If only we get a a good percentage of entries from previous rounds it will be brilliant. You will definitely get much applause from the Quarry spectators ! Perhaps it might have even dried out by then.

Can someone point me to the regs for the pre-66 Jags? I thought JEC were behind it but precious little info on their site and no links for competitors on the CC site.
