Tyres to continue as official sponsor of the Castle Combe Circuit
MELKSHAM, UK, APRIL 15, 2021 –
Avon Tyres is delighted to announce that it will continue as official
sponsor of the Castle Combe Circuit through 2021, extending an arrangement
that stretches back almost 70 years, to the early 1950s.
Combe Circuit, located just 12 miles north of the Avon Tyres headquarters
in Melksham, Wiltshire, has carried Avon branding since 1952. Signage was
first applied to the now iconic Avon Tyres footbridge, which crosses the
pit lane entry, followed by a second bridge between Quarry and the Esses,
renowned to be two of the UK's most challenging circuit corners. Today, an
array of Avon advertising boards, banners and flags can be seen around the
also provides practical assistance to the venue; many of its support and
response vehicles, as well as the single-seater and saloon cars used by the
racing school, are equipped with products from Avon's ultra-high
performance PCR (Passenger Car Radial) and motorsport ranges.
forward, as restrictions relating to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic
are relaxed, Avon intends to play a key role in events staged by the Castle
Combe Circuit, in a similar vein to its Aston Martin-themed display at the 2019 Autumn Classic.
Razeto, Head of Marketing & Communication, Avon Tyres, said, "We
are very proud of our long-standing association with the Castle Combe
Circuit. Extending the arrangement through 2021 was a natural step and we
look forward to our brand featuring prominently, on and off the track, when
events at this fantastic circuit resume in earnest."
Davis, Sales and Marketing Director, Castle Combe Circuit, said, "It's
absolutely fantastic that we are once again welcoming Avon Tyres as our
main circuit sponsor for the 69th year. We are really excited about working
together closer than ever as we look forward to celebrating possibly one of
the longest motorsport sponsorships in history next year."
