I went to Croft about 6-7 years ago for the BTCC. It makes a change being able to buy a burger for £2 rather than the £6 the traders charge at Brands Hatch. What north south divide?

Heading back there this year after missing last year. Hoping this weather we are having up here blows over and provides a dry race day. Taking a first timer along with me too who's a bit of a BMW fan so I suspect he will leave a happy lad.

I agree that AJ looks the business again this year and seems to have his shine back after a tough few years trying to find a winning formula. He has got to grips with that 3 series very quickly and it's obviously a decent package to start with.

Looking forward to watching this as its my very local circuit shame I can't be there as we are at Knockhill racing with the NSSCC so TV it is
the new tarmac at croft is around 2 to 3 seconds a lap quicker for us clubbies so I expect we may see laps of around 1.21 in qualifying and 1.23 in the races assuming its dry
Some thing to watch for tho is the large bump that has appeared on the apex of clevaux that is new to the drivers and may catch a few out initially !

I agree Jordan may be a favourite, he's very quick this year although what he's been lacking so far is luck. Hopefully he'll be able to finish all three races well inside top 10 (and win at least one) to ignite his title chances.

Sutton will be strong as well given this is RWD-friendly track but I'm really curious if Proctor finally finds a sweet spot. Would be good to see him up there in top 6.

Who else will be there?

So we all know Croft is a RWD track. Clearly the new BMW is super-fast...so expect them to be there - likewise the Subaru...will be interesting how Oliphant and Proctor get on....no excuses here!

Maybe a Jelley win?

As for the FWD contingent ....

Dynamics....should be quick, likewise Norlin...

Ingram....looked hard work at Thruxton but he still got some points

Others...?

AmD Hondas could be mega....like really mega...last year Eurotech struggled though

Could also be up there; Chilton, Morgan, Hill, the Vauxhalls ...

Love Croft! Lets see!!!

It's local to me but I am at Cadwell this weekend. Based on my last BTCC trip there in the wet -



- if it is still raining THE place to watch in qualifying is about 100m beyond the chicane ; it doesn't look much but you will see what I mean as it is a brilliant place to watch high speed saves



- take a Stanley knife to cut down all those f***ing gazeboes which spoil everybody's view



- the burgers are cheap (if not 2 quid cheap ) and that is because most of them taste like they are made out of road kill


- every time I go to Croft after BTCC it looks like a war zone - take your effing litter home !!!!

I am sure the racing should be better than it was at Thruxton. There are plenty of outbraking places here

I've even seen the medical car outbrake itself and spin off the track here

Absolutely right!
Halfway down the banking on the entry to the complex is very good, you can see across to the other side and back to Sunny in/Out as well.

That isn't litter, It's destroyed gazebo because some Stanley blade happy **** couldn't be bothered to get up early enough to claim themselves a prime spot.

Weather could throw in a curve ball, but if itís wet Sutton will be right up front & the 3 series seems better in the rain than the 1 series was, might give the FWD guys more of a chance though. If itís dry like you say Sutton & the BMWís (including Oliphant & Jelley) with the Hondaís, Vauxhallís, young Jakeís Audi punching above his weight, along with Morgan, Ingram & Chilton chasing them. With Proctor if he doesnít shine at the next two circuits I canít see him featuring the rest of the season.

If it's wet Sutton will sail off into the distance in race 1 and 2 assuming he's near the front in quali. Probably do the same no matter where qualifies to be honest if it's wet on race day. Be interesting to see what Proctor does with a car that should be the class of the field in those conditions.
