One of the highlights of the local motorsporting scene is set to return later this year with a new-look Croft Historic Race Weekend and Show planned for early September at Croft Circuit.

The popular meeting at North Yorkshire’s premier race track has been an established fixture on the calendar for over a decade in the guise of both the Croft Nostalgia and Croft Retro meeting, but for 2023,the organisers are planning something a bit special to incorporate classic cars and vintage vehicles up to the 1980s.

Many of the favourites remain, including a full programme of action-packed racing on track with various classes from the Historic Sports Car Club over the weekend of September 2nd/3rd, whilst off the track, there is entertainment of all sorts in a hark back to the care-free world of days gone by.

The event is acknowledged as one of the best events in the north of England given its variation of attractions which will again see displays of military vehicles, classic cars and other interesting and rare classics dating from the 1940s through to the 1980s.

There will also be a range of live music ranging from the 1950s to the 1980s, trade stands and steam engines for the crowds to enjoy and the friendly atmosphere at Croft Circuit allows everyone to get close to the race cars in the paddock area along with a display of around 600 vehicles of all shapes and sizes pre-1988.

Application forms to lodge an interest to display a vehicle are now available to be downloaded from the Croft Circuit website until 4th August or until all space is allocated, which ever comes first.

Ticket prices start at just £18 for adults in advance each day with children aged 15 and under admitted free, there is free car parking and paddock access.
