Classic Jags look a bit thin as well. Especially for 30 mins of qualifying and a 1hr race all on Saturday.



Likewise the FF1600s compared to recent times. An hour of Sunday track time, in total, looking a tad competitor light. Hopefully it will fill out a bit in the next week.

Some decent grids there, but what has happened to the touring cars?

Bloody dreadful showing from nearly every race - very disappointing . And an awful advert to the many locals who tend to come to this meeting and BTCC only .

Interesting, Malcolm! Thanks for that. The Jag Challenge seems to be fading away, as the last (non championship) round at Dijon in June was cancelled due to lack of entries. Very surprised by FF numbers, but perhaps F3 has been affected by the proximity (in time) of last weekend’s Silverstone Classic races?

Did the organisers think they were going to get any sort of decent turnout for the Jag race.?

This is always a problem when Croft is only one week after Silverstone Classic.
As the Silverstone meeting is one of the historic calendar's top dogs (and, I'm sure, would not contemplate taking Croft's first August weekend in to consideration) then Croft must change their date to ensure a 2 week gap.

Silverstone Classic date is very much governed by the Brit GP date, two weeks between so that the same temporary infrastructure can be used for both. Not quite such a consideration, but Nürburgring OldTimer is the weekend after Croft, and the two have clashed before.

And they can't move to later in August because that's The Gold Cup's slot...…

I am aware of that but it as FF1600 , for one , wasn't at the Classic , it isn't the only reason . Croft never overflows with entries but this is the worst yet.

Be aware that if anyone intends travelling from the north-west via the scenic route through the Yorkshire Dales (or even staying up there - I think some have in the past) - there was a lot of flooding there yesterday. At least one bridge collapsed, properties flooded, roads closed and a fair bit of disruption

Mainly in Swaledale but maybe other areas? Hopefully the main routes (or whatever passes for main routes in the Dales) will be clear by then but 'just in case'.

Whatever genius that thought it a good idea to stage a 60 minute Jaguar race for just half a dozen cars , really does need to think again . Those of who had not left already were still weeping with boredom by the time the last two races were staged . Compared to every previous Nostalgia meeting(to which this is equivalent ) this feels flat and really rather dull. Good on the folk who have turned up to race , especially the good number of FF2000s , but it's a meeting defined by absences, with some very thin grids .

The Touring car race was boring with about 10 cars.

TBH the Jag race was alright at the start on the comms anyway.

Although when you get people who normally get lapped when the series has a good grid winning its not great.Anyway good for those who turned up for thst one.

Most grids were poor which is no surprise.What can they and we do to get bigger grids.No shortage ot cars out there to race.
