It's a month away, and all the usual HSCC grids will be there (most double headers) plus 500cc F3.

I've read reports of previous years and am very tempted to make the trek up this time. Track looks a bit bumpy and fast from watching BTCCC action a few weeks ago. Who's driven it?

Think only time have ever been to the circuit was when it was used as a stage of the RAC Rally. Can remember a Stratos minus engine cover- lost in a forest somewhere- circulating and sounding even more gorgeous than usual........

Nostalgia!

You should definitely make the effort Mike - it's a great weekend. I hope the organisers get good weather for the whole meeting this time, they deserve it.

Yes, I'll be there Iain - doing 'timing' this year so no photos I'm afraid. Looking forward to it - they are trying to put on another good show with the non-racing attractions again http://www.croftmilitary.co.uk/ so as Alan says we just need the weather for it now.

What do you mean we talk funny? Just packing the car to set off for the Le Mans Classic - do they speak 'Yorkshire' there?

I'm working on the principle that like Spa, there has to be good weather one year.... Anyway, there can't be that much left up in the sky, surely!

Delta is already re-prepped, Morgan looks good to go as well, so no excuses for not being there.

Croft is a fantastic circuit and well worth a visit - it may be a little light on facilities but the track is fantastic. Maybe I'm biased as it was where I saw my first ever motor race - it has changed quite a lot and mostly for the better although I still miss the double decker bus that used to be the commentary tower!

Jon and I are heading north with the Falcon and the Grantura and looking forward to it already

It's my closest circuit on the HSCC trail but only got to know it a couple of years ago. Well worth the trip. The organisers put a huge amount of effort in to attract local sports enthunsiasts to come along and watch, so you get a reasonable crowd (even in monsoon weather). Plus fancy dress (anything old basically) is encouraged as there is a whole host of old military memorabilia on show and usually a couple of 'chaps' flying byplanes and the likes.

Circuit wise, its got plenty in it to keep it challenging. If you took Cadwell Park, flattened it and shortened the straight bits a little you would get the idea. Not the widest track around but with some pretty ballsy corners, a tightish chicane and a 1st gear hairpin its got plenty to keep you occupied.

I didn't find the circuit too bumpy, but there are tarmac changes that can catch you out if it rains.

You should just go... (in fancy dress + tash)
