Two Yate racing drivers are showing off their cars in the Town’s Shopping Centre.
Chris Hignell and Dan Burt, in conjunction with Castle Combe racing circuit, will have two of their race cars on display on Saturday 18th April.
The cars, a Fiat Punto HGT, and a Dominator TS400 Sports GT, will be available for photographs and for youngsters to get a first hand experience of the workings of a race car.
 The cars will compete at Castle Combe later this year, and are supported by local businesses including Abrahams Jewellers, Infinity Exhausts, Sodbury Fuels, Avon Valley Adventure Park and Miles Tea & Coffee.
Castle Combe will be promoting the racing and action days held at their circuit, and will be giving away a range of prizes. These include entry tickets and baseball caps as well as a formula ford experience. Chris and Dan have also offered high-speed laps in one of their cars for one winner later in the year.
 Abrahams Jewellers celebrate their 70th birthday this year, and have sponsored the Driver of the Day award at the circuit for 30 years. They will be on hand to tell visitors all about a prize draw taking place later this year.
