Alfaholics 17th annual track day for classic Alfa Romeos will be held at Castle Combe circuit on Saturday 21st April 2018.
All 105 series owners welcome!
We would once again like to welcome owners of all 105 series Alfas to take part in our 2018 track day. Every year there is a fantastic international flavour to the weekend with customers travelling from Europe and far beyond to attend the event! The atmosphere and camaraderie is always fantastic so we are looking forward to another thoroughly enjoyable day. Additional drivers in any cars entered are also welcome. Those wishing to attend the day as spectators will be warmly welcomed and can take part in a 4 lap circuit parade over the lunch hour.
Signing on will take place at 8.00am sharp in the Howard Strawford Centre, followed by a compulsory drivers’ briefing. Familiarisation laps with instructors will begin at 9.00am when the circuit opens. There will be a 1 hour break for lunch from 12.30 to 1.30pm. The afternoon session concludes at 5.00pm when the circuit closes.
Castle Combe is well known for its technical and challenging layout, combining chicanes and fast corners that make for very exciting driving. With 12 cars permitted on the circuit at once, there will be virtually unlimited track time all day!
We will once again have our favourite instructor, Erling, to provide his expert circuit instruction. He is an official Castle Combe instructor and will be able to assist you with improving your racing lines, braking points, gear change points and provide lots more tips to help you improve your skills. Those who have benefitted from his instruction in previous years have said how much their enjoyment of the day had been enhanced as a result.
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 Tavern Restaurant situated in the paddock will be open all day serving food and drinks for the benefit of all.
In the evening
To round off a great day, everyone is welcome to join us afterwards for an early evening dinner and drinks at an excellent country pub just a mile from the circuit. This has become a popular tradition over the past few years so please let us know if you would like to attend.
How to book
The cost for a car plus driver is £225 plus VAT with additional drivers at £60 plus VAT. One to one instruction is £20 plus VAT per session.
As usual, demand is sure to be considerable and numbers are strictly limited, so please contact Andrew at [email protected] as soon as possible in order to book your place and avoid disappointment! Alternatively, you can call us on +44 1275 349449.
We will once again be holding our popular open day at Alfaholics on the Friday before the track day (Friday 20th April). Everyone is very welcome to attend, look round our workshops and chat to fellow Alfisti. There will be a buffet lunch and refreshments are provided all day.
