Castle Combe 29th March 2003

Just been checking the MST website and they have no data from this meeting at all. Was anyone there today who can feed back some results, particularly the FF1600 championship round? Thanks all...

It was as per usual for Combe a good day. The FF1600 was won by Josh Fisher driving one of jadlam racing's new Van Diemens, second was Chris Axford, third went to Paul Barnes. Class B was won by Alan Slater. Castle Combe GT's had a tiny grid and Tony Sinclair ran away with that in a Jade. Castle Combe saloons were quite good with some great new cars. Tim Hanlon won that from Russ Humphery in a very expensive looking and well prepared new Astra, class C was won by Tony MacWhiter after a bit of physical battle with Arthur Marks. A mention has to go to the MGB V8's who were great to watch, some nice cars out there in that one.

imull has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
How about the Xtreme minis. That bloke who finished 5th overall even though their start was about 15 seconds after teh saloons...

MG by far the best to watch.

I dont often go to the circuits so was amazed that we were screwed £10 to get in and then had to buy a program after that too. Is this the norm? My friend told me it was also an extra £6 to get into the paddock... Is this true?

Fun day out.

thanks Patrick, was Fisher impressive or did he just have the right car?? nevertheless, a good result as he has not driven there before has he? also, have you any ides about fastest lap in the FF1600's? Good to see Alan Slater winning the B class, what was his opposition like cos I guess Andrew Jones is playing with the big boys now!? Imull, yes you normally have to pay extra for a programme wherever you go, and to pay to go into the paddock is normal practice as well. I cant think of any other circuits where you get in free, unless you are a child of course!!

Isle of Mull to Castle Combe is quite a trip for your first meeting? I don't recall being charged for paddock admission at any british club meeting in recent years.Only Lydden & Anglesey were less than £10 when I was last there in 2001.Just £6 for 2 days I think.Never been to Knockhill-what do they do there?

Verglas, Fisher took a toght but controlled win, didn't run off the front of everyone but did just enough to hold off a tight leading pack of 4. Slater was 5th overall I think, with Gary Marsh being the only one to hold a candle to him, on the back of the 5th to 8th place train. And Fisher raced at Combe in Zips last year (and a F.Renault Tatuus in the Mono 2000 race too).

Best race of the day was the MG's, a particular highlight being Spencer McCarthy and Rob Huff going side by side through Old Paddock om the last lap, for the lead of class B, great stuff.

Also felt sorry for the chap in the very fast Extreme Mini who left the bottom half of his big end on the grass just passed us at Old Paddock. That looked expensive

A good day.. great FF race, and MG's were epic - esepcially at Old Paddock on the last lap!

More of the same please..

I think that speccie admission fees to circuits are way way too high. lower the cost, increase the number of speccies let the clubs do some proper local marketing and let motor racing become great again.

Is 10 quid for a day's entertainment too high? Pretty big crowd for your average club meeting as well. Would appear that people are willing to pay.

they are but a tenner to watch the likes of me is a bit steep. Though It would be worth it if the circuits treated the fans better than they do. Castle Combe gets it right every time, Brands certainly does not.

Yeah I think £10 is about right. If I want to go and watch a meeting, it won't make any difference if they are charging £7 or £15 - I think most fans would probably agree - which is why the circuits do it!

Verglas, Josh did have the right car being a jadlam racing Van Diemen 01, the one that David Male won the carnival with at Combe last year. But not to take anything away from him he did drive well. Alan Slater also drove well, he actually finished ahead of Andrew Jones in his very nice looking class A Swift. As the season progresses I can see Alan having some more competition, as others improve. In saying that Gary Marsh is quite quick already and was last year too. Fastest lap I think went to Alex Ames but don't quote me on that one, I'm not 100%.
