Drivers at the ready to support The Forever Friends Appeal

A charity track day at Castle Combe Circuit near Chippenham on Wednesday 2nd April 2014 is hoping to raise over £3000 for its chosen beneficiary charity, The Forever Friends Appeal at the RoyalUnitedHospital in Bath.

The track day is an exciting opportunity for drivers to experience speed in their own cars, whilst supervised by the circuit’s marshals, at one of the longest established and famous motor circuits in the UK. Track days are not races or timed events and welcome everyone, from beginners to seasoned circuit drivers, who want to discover what it’s like to drive and handle their car at speed in a safe and controlled environment.

On the day, cars on track will range from Ford GT40 replica and Maserati Ghibli to Mazda MX5, BMW M3 and Porsche 911. Classic cars include Ford Escort RS2000, modified MG Midgets and a rapid Morris Minor. Passenger rides may be available and spectators will be welcome and free.

The 36 places for this event are filling up fast and the fundraising total has already reached £1,800, and is still set to rise. All funds raised will be split between The Forever Friends Appeal’s Cancer Care Campaign and the Children’s Ward at the RUH.

Laura Pearce, Events Fundraiser for The Forever Friends Appeal, comments:

“We are extremely grateful to Castle Combe Circuit for making this event possible and choosing to support The Appeal for two very important areas of the Royal United Hospital. This day promises to be the ride of a lifetime for motor enthusiasts and those seeking a new experience with a difference. We hope all of the drivers thoroughly enjoy their day on this world-class circuit!”
