Croft circuit is one of the most challenging tracks in the UK. It is also one of the longest at 2.12 miles per lap.
The event, now in its nineth year, is acknowledged as one of the best events in the north of England, with a mix of exhilarating Motor Sport, Military vehicle displays with living history encampments, Classic vehicles from the 1930’s to the 1970’s and barnstorming flying displays from period aircraft. We encourage members of the public to enter into the spirit of the event and don some period clothing and have some fun at the festival.
The friendly atmosphere at Croft Circuit allows you to get close to the race cars in the paddock areas. Military vehicles of all sizes are a must for a photo opportunity and parade laps of the circuit on Sunday morning by Classic cars, Military vehicles and motorcycles, there is something for the whole family.
With cream teas available and a Pimms bar, you can sit back and soak up the atmosphere from times gone by.
There are flying displays planned again for this year with one or two extra special aircraft a possibility subject to availability, more information will be published once confirmation is received. Trade stalls will be selling a variety of products from vintage clothing and military kit to fashionable accessories and a period hair style makeover.
The weekend’s entertainment in the marquee will be hosted by Colin Bourdiec ‘AKA’ George Formby who will serenade you with classics like When I m Cleaning Windows and also has a WW2 ENSA routine that will take you back to the 1940’s. You can also dance along to classic tunes courtesy of the harmony trio 'The Daisy Belles' and a live band in the marquee during both days.
