The greatest moments in Castle Combe's 70 year history

From wins for Moss and Hawthorn to a 1994 Tyrrell smashing the lap record, there have been plenty of memorable occasions in Castle Combe's long history. Autosport marks its best ahead of its 70th birthday celebrations at the Autumn Classic

It was 8 July 1950 when Castle Combe staged its inaugural meeting for 500cc Formula 3 cars. The Wiltshire track is celebrating its 70th anniversary with this weekend's Castle Combe Autumn Classic, a two-day bonanza that will again feature motorcycle-engined cars as major draw.

Although it will be staged behind closed doors due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, there could be no better time for Autosport to mark the occasion by recalling the key moments in the old war-time airfield venue's history as part of this week's commemorative issue of the national racing supplement.
