COMMENT  This weekend (1-2 October) sees two Autumn Classic events: Castle Combe on Saturday and Prescott, both Saturday and Sunday. Luckily, they are not far apart, so why not do Castle Combe first, then spend a night away in the Cotswolds before descending on the American-themed Prescott Speed Hill Climb meeting. Sounds good to me....
