Stars at Castle Coombe Grand National

By Web editor, 15 February 2014

The Castle Combe Circuit Grand National which takes place on June 21-22, 2014, will see some top stars riding famous bikes as well as a weekend of action-packed club racing around the famous Wiltshire circuit...

Headlining the festival will be 20-times TT winner John McGuinness who will ride the ex Mike Hailwood 296cc Honda Six. He'll be joined on track by Steve Parrish on the 500cc Honda Four, as ridden by John McGuinness in the Mike Hailwood tribute alongside Giacomo Agostini as last year's Classic TT, where the pair famously recreated the battle in the 1967 Senior TT.

Castle Combe Circuit's only motorcycle meeting of the year promises something really special. Run by the NG Road Racing Club, the packed race schedule features just about every solo class including the return of the British Historic Championship after a two year break. The classic theme is continued with the Classic and Specials Parade run in association with the TT Riders Association so expect some special bikes and riders in addition.

Practice, qualifying and racing will take place over both days with the final timetable still to be announced. A special Honda Parade will take place on the Sunday during the lunch break.

For further information on the meeting visit the circuit website or for riders wishing to enter the meeting for the races or the parade contact the NG Road Racing Club at or contact Rodney Gooch, Castle Combe Circuit on 01249 7825417
