Time to start this thread off I think now that it is only a couple of weeks away - hope to see a few 10-Tenths members there! Sadly I won't be able to contribute with any photographs this year as I'll be working at the event.

The provisional timetable is on the HSCC website - http://www.hscc.org.uk/resources/Cro...20day%20V2.pdf

There will be double header races for Historic Road Sports, 70s Road Sports, Historic Touring Cars, Historic Formula Ford, Classic Racing Cars, Derek Bell Trophy, Historic Formula Junior, and Historic Formula Ford 2000. Plus a single race for the 500cc F3 cars on Sunday. I understand that there is testing available on the Friday.

In addition to the racing there is scheduled to be a display of military vehicles, classic cars and aircraft with visitors being encouraged to dress in period costume. The HSCC site mentions a fly past on Saturday evening by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and on Sunday a fly past by a Jet Provost. There will be live 'period' music on the Saturday evening in the marquee.

As last year, the 'locals' are really looking forward to this one and we hope that it builds upon the success of last year's event.

This will be going out to the H Formula Ford bunch soon but equally applies to all entrants. Hope for good weather and a nice time.
........Croft a former WW2 RAF bomber airfield is coming up and their 'Nostalgia Weekend' activities will be even more of a show than last year.

There will be a live band and Forties Dance and Pie & Peas Supper in the Dance Marquee on the Saturday evening for all who book a place. It will be 5 a head for food and entry (pay on the night),. Please let me know if you would like to join the HFF bunch getting in the mood for a little bit of war-time silliness as soon as you can on jane.dikko@virgin.net or 01920 871153.

The organiser tells me there along with the huge Military display there will be living history displays and re-enactor groups, trade stalls will be selling a variety of period items, barnstorming period aircraft flying displays are in place and will be even more spectacular than last year and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will make an appearance.

400 classic cars will be attending as well as a fleet of Classic buses (when you want one 29 will come along!) some of which will be circulating the circuit on Sunday morning for charity rides. A special and probably rather noisy 'Battle of Tanks' will be another highlight amongst the many on the ground. Along with the odd appearance of George Formby leaning on a lampost somewhere, maybe a military band there will be Marilyn Monroes' in abundance! Before the dancing on Saturday evening sees a 1940's fashion show and period dress is encouraged by all attending.

Flat Caps and frocks at the ready please. (It's a very personal choice which you choose..!!)

If you want to find out more visit the Croft event website at http://www.croftmilitary.co.uk/ and if any of you wish to use our HFF BBQ equipment anytime over the weekend (you may have to clean it afterwards!) let me know and I'll bring it along.



Provisional Timetable (the Classic race follows our HFF race, the office say this may be rescheduled for those that may want to do both. Please see any updates on the HSCC website)

Very much looking forward to this event. The A105 will be a bit outclassed in the Touring Cars races on Sunday but hopefully keeping up with the back of the field - provided we finish intact at Thruxton this Saturday.

BBMF website says the flypast is at 14h00 on Saturday.

Croft was one of the highlights of the season last year. It sounds as though the organisers are stepping up their efforts to provide an attactive event for the public. Let's hope they put some effort into the paddock facilities as well - the shower and toilet facilities were a bit lacking for those of us staying at the circuit.

Still looking forward to it, though.

Isn't that all part of the nostalgia theme though?

Nothing that a shovel, some standpipes and a supply of old tin baths can't fix ....

Yes - you're quite right. Mustn't forget to pack my Wrights Coal Tar soap and Izal Medicated in case the facilities haven't improved.

What on earth would you need the soap for? Heck man you'll only be there a few days plenty of time for the weekly wash when you get home.

As for the Izal - what on earth is wrong with leaf litter? Tha'll be a marked man if thee makes use of fancy paper tha' noes. Anyway, there's no food north of Watford 'cos the country is covered with aerodromes so tha'll not be needing t'facilities much ...

Entry List

The entry list is now on the HSCC website - looks quite good considering the journey north may put some regulars off. At first glance it certainly looks on a par with last year:

http://www.hscc.org.uk/resources/Pro...oft%202011.pdf

Ref washing facilities - as I don't live far from the circuit I'll bring a hosepipe and a couple of old metal baths (I'll need to empty the flowers out first!). Alternatively the River Tees isn't far if you want an early morning dip.

I think it looks stronger than last year. The Road Sports looks much better supported. Trying to negotiate a pass out with Mrs S for the Saturday, but not nailed on yet!
