Forge Action Day Returns to Castle Combe
The Forge Action Day has rapidly become a must-visit feature of the Banzai calendar. Despite its modest age, now in its sixth year, it brings together a large number of people from all scenes – not least the Japanese car scene. Moreover, being based at Castle Combe in Wiltshire, the backdrop and on-track action only helps increase the appeal of the event, which takes place on September 10th.
As ever, 2016 is shaping up to bring together a variety of modified metal, including race, road and custom car from across the country and beyond. According to Forge, despite a record 6,500 petrolheads attending last year, this year’s shaping up to be bigger and better. More clubs, cars and potential to get on Castle Combe’s challenging circuit is promising to draw the crowds in!
Forge Action Day 2016 will be up there with the best shows in the UK in terms of the cars and clubs attending. Over 100 owners clubs and 2,000 cars will be on display, with the Jap scene well represented by Honda, Nissan, Mazda and Mitsubishi all present. Adding to the breadth of the show’s offering is the appealing mixture of both old and new cars to take a look around.
Of course this being Forge Motorsport it’s not just the cars that are there to pull in the punters and maintain their interest – even if Forge will be displaying a range of its own project cars. There will be presences from a variety of heavyweight tuning suppliers including Eibach, Pipercross, Miltek, Cobra, Powerflex, Tarox and Litchfield. Many of these will also be fielding track cars so keep your eyes on the circuit!
Obviously this being Castle Combe the track is at the centre of the action. Fully marshalled sessions will be running throughout the day so attendants can get some laps in and there is plenty of space to fill so don’t miss out! Track time also includes drift and club sessions, with the former offering the chance to see professional drift display teams in action. Sounds good, right?
One of the best things about the Forge Action Day aside from its chilled out, intimate vibe is the fact that it’s an inexpensive way to enjoy the modified car scene. Just £12 buys you a full day ticket and if you want to get on track, 15 minute sessions come in at £35 if booked in advance.
We’ll run a report on all the action and best Japanese modified cars once the Forge Action Day has run so watch this space.
