Two fantastic days of classic bike trackday enjoyment start with the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics magazine trackday. You can enjoy six sessions on Castle Combe circuit’s 1.85 miles of super-smooth Tarmac, where you can blast down through the ultra-fast Folly and over Avon Rise before reaching the infamous Quarry Corner, then on to Old Paddock, Hammerdown and Camp Corner before the start of another great lap.

The second of the two Classic Bike Trackday events at Castle Combe sees the VJMC hosting in memory of the late Andy Callingham, a club member who sadly passed away in the autumn of 2017.

Andy had a passion for motorcycles of all types, but particularly Japanese and Italian, so the club has encouraged Italian machine riders to join in and take to the Tarmac in honour of this former club member.
