Classic Car Comment  Motor racing returns on 4 July with a meeting at Castle Combe Circuit, although not historic, with strict COVID-19 guidelines which will apply into the foreseeable future. Team Retro-Speed senior member Ken Davies is in charge of proceedings at Castle Combe so we take this opportunity of wishing him and the rest of his team a safe day and the very best of luck.
