So when we heard there was a Grand National Motorcycle race meeting being held at Castle Combe racetrack just a short car journey away from us we knew James would love it!
Saturday morning the sun was shining and of we headed to the Castle Combe circuit. Prices were really reasonable at £10 per adult for 1 day admission (or £15 if you visit on the Sunday), under 16's were free and parking was also free!
There were lots of different types of motorbikes racing much to James delight including the classic bikes, F2 sidecars, solo classes and also parades of some of the bikes! We found a great place to sit right on a bend so the bikes were slowing down so that James could get a good look. Did you know Castle Combe is the only race track where you can walk the entire way around and still watch the race the entire time!?
Food and drink was available on site but we took our own blanket and picnic to keep costs down and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Here are some more pictures from our day at Castle Combe -
The Castle Combe Grand national motorcycle race meeting is spread over 2 days with each day packed with at least 20 races so it really is an action packed day out for all the family to enjoy, especially if you have a little motorbike fan like we do!
