RON AND LEON HASLAM TO RIDE AT CASTLE COMBE.

Author: Cartersport
Posted on: Wednesday, Jun 25 2008



As well as some top class club racing and the two feature races, race fans will be treated to the sight and sound of BSB star Leon Haslam who will be demonstrating the HM Plant Honda Superbike at the Fowlers-sponsored motorcycle meeting.

Leon will take to the circuit for a short lunchtime demonstration on Sunday and joining him on the track will be his father Ron Haslam riding Andy Caddick's ex Honda UK and Wayne Gardner three cylinder RS500 machine.

In the 1980's, Ron Haslam was one of the most successful British racers, regularly finishing on the podium in Grands Prix and although Ron only made one appearance at Castle Combe on a Ducati, this will be a unique opportunity to see Ron riding on an extremely rare and evocative bike as he joins Leon on the circuit.

Local European Championship racer Tommy Bridewell is planning on racing his Suzuki GSXR1000 at his local event where he'll be up against defending CCGN Champion Victor Cox who races in the British Championships and more top class entries are expected.

Full details of the event will be found on the Castle Combe website at www.castlecombecircuit.co.uk and for further information please contact Rodney Gooch, Castle Combe Circuit Ltd., Castle Combe, Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN14 7EY.
