Mini Action Day at Castle Combe
As huge supporters of Castle Combe Circuit, we were delighted this year to become official sponsors of the Mini Action Day at Castle Combe which was held in association with Mini Sport on the 26th September.
The Mini Action Day attracted enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe to take part in an action-packed series of events which includes track sessions, parades, lunchtime cruises, charity rides and demonstrations.
Situated at the West Country Circuit in Chippenham, Wiltshire, the Mini Action Day Event is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year and with our involvement for 2015, we ensured that the day was better than ever – bringing along our good friend, Paddy Hopkirk for exclusive meets & greets at our club stand.
We can’t wait for next year at Castle Combe, when we welcome back friends, fans and old favourites to join us at our stand.
