Autumn Classic at Castle Combe - 1 October 2016
The Vintage Sports Car Club's race for Pre-war sports cars kicked off the nine race schedule, enjoying a window of sunshine and drying track. Minis were the cars to have for the first visit to the 'Classic' of the HRDC's 'Coys Trophy' race for Touring Cars built between 1958 and 1966, being more suited to the treacherous conditions than bigger and normally quicker machinery. A selection of those racing and some on parade are included to show what this event is all about. For those who are interested, the last Ferrari 250 GTO like Nick Mason's at the event sold for £23,000,000.
