Combe Sa­loons to have first away round for decade

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Cas­tle Combe Sa­loon Car Cham­pi­onship will hold a race away from the Wilt­shire track for the first time in over a decade this sea­son.

Se­ries or­gan­is­ers have booked a non-cham­pi­onship event at Don­ing­ton Park on a Bri­tish Au­to­mo­bile Rac­ing Club meet­ing onjune 18. The move has been made af­ter com­peti­tor de­mand for an away fix­ture. It is non-cham­pi­onship as the se­ries’ of­fi­cial cal­en­dar and reg­u­la­tions had al­ready been rat­i­fied by the MSA.

Cas­tle Combe Rac­ing Club’s Jo Lewkow­icz said: “A num­ber of driv­ers have asked about rac­ing some­where dif­fer­ent and Don­ing­ton had a spare slot on that meet­ing so we went for it.

“It will be a sin­gle 20-minute race with 15 min­utes qual­i­fy­ing and is open to any sa­loon cars fit­ting our reg­u­la­tions. We al­ready have 30 peo­ple’s names down for it and a max­i­mum grid of 40 cars so it could be­come a reg­u­lar fix­ture in fu­ture sea­sons.”
