Performance Car Action Day, Saturday 10th September 2011: Forge Motorsport Partnership

Castle Combe Action Days

Castle Combe Circuit Action Days are delighted to announce a new partnership with one of the UK’s leading performance tuning companies – Forge Motorsport. The premier aftermarket tuning brand will be supporting the historic Wiltshire circuit’s popular Summer ‘Performance Car Action Day,’ on Saturday September 10th – which also incorporates the inaugural “Subaru Saturday” event, set to attract a raft of Subaru owners and fans of the rally-bred marque.

New Performance Car Action Day event partners, Forge Motorsport (www.forgemotorsport.co.uk) will be showcasing a range of their tuning products including intercoolers, alloy tanks, blow off valves and much more to the 1000’s of performance car, drift and track day fans attending the Summer Action Day in early September. And Forge will also be demonstrating and displaying some of their highly-modified race and sprint cars – including Bo Neilson’s Astra VXR (2010 Time Attack Champion), Steve Chaplin’s VW RSI Beetle, aka ‘Herbie’ (2010 VW Racing Cup Champion) and Joe Fulbrook’s VW Racing Cup VW Bora 1.8T; showcasing many of their products in style in the packed paddock, and on the speedy circuit.

This Summer’s Performance Car Action Day is set to attract over 100 car clubs to the paddock, 1000’s of performance, drift, circuit and track cars on display, a plethora of trade stands to pick a bargain up at and, of course, a great value chance to lap the historic 1.85-mile high-speed circuit with like-minded enthusiasts – with track time costing just £30 a session (booked in advance).

Last year’s Summer Action Day saw an invasion of drift cars, slewing sideways around the circuit in a haze of tyre smoke. And they will be back in force this year, along with a huge gathering of Subarus, for the first ever Castle Combe “Subaru Saturday.” And, as well as the Japanese performance cars, there’s bound to be a big turn out from Castle Combe regulars, like the RS Owners Club, Vauxhall VXR’s, Caterhams, Audi RS’, BMW M-Power cars and pretty much every performance car imaginable, from Ariel Atoms to Z-Car Minis.

Castle Combe has been hosting Action Day events for over 25 years now, attracting tens of 1000’s of drivers, doing millions of high speed laps of the track and featuring 1000’s of car clubs. The unique events give petrol-heads the country over the chance to lap around this fabulous, flowing, fast circuit and enjoy seeing 1000’s of perfectly-presented performance, drift and track cars.

Chairman of the famous Castle Combe Action Days, Howard Strawford said: “We are very proud of the Action Days. For almost three decades now, we’ve been running these track-based shows to different car clubs and motoring enthusiasts, where you get a chance to have some high speed thrills on track, as well as share your common interest with 1000’s of people with similar passions in the historic paddock. They are a great day out for all the family, and offer great value for money for those who want to drive our fabulous circuit.

“We are very pleased indeed to have Forge Motorsport on-board for this year’s Summer Performance Car Action Day. It’s a brand that’s well known and respected in the track day, tuning and racing scenes, and we are sure their stand and demonstration cars will bring something special to the event.”

Peter Miles, Managing Director of Forge Motorsport said: “We are extremely pleased to be sponsoring Castle Combe’s Performance Car Action Day in September. This is the first time we have been involved in these established, exciting track and show events at the historic Wiltshire circuit. We’re very much looking forward to the day.

“Castle Combe’s Action Days present a great opportunity for us to showcase our brand of performance products directly to our target audience marketplace – enthusiastic performance car owners and track day fans. We have some fabulous new lines of intercoolers, blow off valves, alloy tanks, actuators, brake hose kits, silicone hoses, carbon fibre and much more besides to showcase – all ideal tuning products for the performance car and track day market attending the Performance Car Action Days. And we will also have a range of Forge Motorsport cars on display, including Bo Neilson’s 2010 Time Attack-winning Astra VXR, Steve Chaplin’s 2010 VW Racing Cup champion VW Beetle RSI and Joe Fulbrook’s VW Racing Cup VW Bora 1.8T, which I’m sure the crowds will enjoy watching on track and inspecting in the paddock.”
