1 Mins read

Carl Fogarty will join Castle Combe in celebrating the 60th anniversary of their first dedicated motorcycle meeting next month with a guest appearance at the Fowlers Pro-Bike National race meeting.

The four-time World Superbike champion will be joined on a special parade lap by stars from the British Superbike Championship including Michael Rutter and Martin Jessopp of Rapid Solicitors Bathams Ducati and Scott Smart of Moto Rapido Ducati.

For Fogarty, it will mark his return to the track where he set the circuit’s first ever 100mph motorcycle lap on his way to winning the MCA Star Race 22 years ago. It was the circuit’s first national bike meeting for 20 years and 'Foggy' averaged over 100mph for all eight laps taking a 3.5 second victory from Steve Chambers with his fastest lap clocked at a stunning 102.22mph.

On Saturday 3rd September, the Wiltshire track will also put on a day of top class national racing with the Rapid Solicitors Ducati 848 Challenge, British F2 Sidecars and the British Historic Grand Prix Championship among the entertainment on show.

Local Melksham company Avon Tyres will also be putting on a static display showing the 100 years in which they have been making bike tyres, and with the additional support of Motorcycle Direct Insurance and BLD, it is sure to add to an exciting day's entertainment.

Adult admission costs just £15 with accompanied children under 16 admitted FREE. A paddock transfer costs just £2.50 with practice getting underway at 8.45am and racing from 11.20am. Further information is available at www.castlecombecircuit.co.uk or by ringing 01249 782417.
