ALFAHOLICS 7TH SPRING TRACKDAY 2008
Alfaholics 7th annual track day for classic Alfa Romeos will once again be held at Castle Combe on Saturday 12th April 2008.
Owners of 105 series Alfas who would like the opportunity to drive their cars at speed in a non-competitive environment are very welcome.
Castle Combe, situated between J17 and J18 of the M4, is 1.85 miles long and combines chicanes and fast corners that make for extremely exciting and challenging driving. Once again, instructors will be on hand to offer advice and demonstrate cornering technique, while all corners will be ‘coned’ to show braking, turn-in and apex points. With only 12 cars on the circuit at any one time, there will be virtually unlimited track time. Additional drivers in any cars entered are welcome.
Following the tremendous success of the past couple of years when many of our Dutch and Norwegian customers (and Richard Merrell!) made the lengthy journey, we would once again like to welcome all our international customers who would like to attend. For those who wish to stay over the weekend, we shall be organising accommodation nearby in Bristol. Please contact us for rates and availability.

Those wishing to attend as spectators will be warmly welcomed and can take part in a 3 lap circuit parade over the lunch hour.
The Tavern Restaurant in the paddock will be open all day serving food and drinks for the benefit of all.
Signing on will be held in the Howard Strawford Centre followed by a circuit briefing by the Clerk of the Course, Andrew Banks, before familiarisation laps with instructors at 9am when the circuit opens.
Castle Combe is particularly strict on noise emission, with an absolute limit of 99dB(A) at 4500rpm, measured on a static test of 0.5 metres from the end of the exhaust pipe at 45º. This means that cars should use a standard exhaust or a sensible sports system. The Alfaholics sports exhaust is fine. Add-on silencers are available from Merlin Motorsport in the Paddock on the day.
The cost for a car plus driver is £160 plus VAT with additional drivers at £65 plus VAT. One to one instruction is £20 plus VAT per 15 minute session. We highly recommend you pay the small charge for this, as the pleasure obtained from the day is greatly enhanced.
As usual, demand is sure to be considerable and numbers are strictly limited, so please use the advance registration form below to avoid disappointment! Please print and send to the address above or fax to +44 1398 351163.
