Croft lays down foundations for new season with full-circuit resurfacing

Croft Circuit is gearing up to reverberate to the sound of horsepower once more as a busy year of British motorsport is set to begin at the North Yorkshire venue following the completion of the entire circuit being resurfaced.

Coming off the back of another memorable season on-track last year, the much-loved circuit focused on executing long harboured plans to resurface during the off-season, with consultations between the circuit landlord and the British Automobile Racing Club taking place.

In conjunction with the UK’s leading sustainable building materials group Tarmac, work to remove all 2.1 miles of tarmac, prepare the ground and then lay new tarmac began in early April – with the work ultimately finishing less than two weeks later.

Such was the meticulous preparation by Tarmac, lines of test tarmac were firstly laid in the paddock to make sure the different batches of tarmac were consistent in their formulation and grip.

Whilst the newly tarmacked surface is set to provide new levels of grip for competitors, the unique character and challenges that Croft has always presented remains the same, with the venue set continue producing edge-of-the-seat entertainment.

“It has been a huge project but one that has proven to be very rewarding for everyone involved as the circuit now looks even more wonderful given that all of the work has been completed,” explained Tracey Morley, Croft Circuit Manager.

“A full resurface has been long overdue and conversations regarding the process had been ongoing for a number of months. One of the major points we worked on with Tarmac was to ensure that the circuit retained its character and the unique challenges it presented teams, drivers and riders.

“We’ve been successfully able to do that whilst also eliminating all of the past issues, ultimately enhancing the experience for everyone that visits the circuit and takes to the track.

“To see Croft looking better than ever is a real positive and in-turn it has set us up for what is shaping up to be another busy season of racing – starting this weekend with the British Automobile Racing Club.”

The BARC will stage the first event on the new surface this weekend (April 13/14) before Croft embarks on another spectacular summer of racing with the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (June 15/16) and the Croft Retro & Classic Weekend (August 3/4) serving as the headliners.
