Guild of Motoring Writers track day

More than 50 Guild members and guests took to the fast, flowing Castle Combe racing circuit in Wiltshire for the fifth Big Day Out track day.

An eclectic mix of cars included pre-war MG and Alvis racers, Cobras, Porsches, Alfas, BMWs, Mazda MX5s, an Austin Maestro and more.

This year the event was supported by a new sponsor, Suzuki. A new Swift Sport was in action on track all day long and there was another available for road tests. New models from Peugeot, Citroën, Toyota and Lexus were also available for test drives.

Experienced sports car and single seater racer Mike Wilds was on hand to give driving tuition and passenger rides.

Since its inception in 2013 the Big Day Out track day has become a firm favourite with Guild members and will return again next year.

The Guild’s next major event is the Annual General Meeting at Aston Martin Lagonda’s Gaydon headquarters on 9 May.
