CROFT Circuit has announced its chosen charity for 2022 as Race Against Dementia, founded by three-times Formula 1 World champion Sir Jackie Stewart.

It raises and allocates funds to accelerate global research and development in the race to find a prevention or treatment for dementia.

Sir Jackie's wife Helen was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in 2014. Her short-term memory is now fading, and dementia is taking hold of her mind and body. 

Race Against Dementia is driven to raise money to fund dementia research in the hope of aiding a breakthrough in the prevention or treatment of dementia with the greatest of urgency.

"I’m so grateful that the team at Croft Circuit have selected Race Against Dementia as their chosen charity for this year. Myself, and the Stewart family, have fond memories of attending Croft with Paul Stewart Racing and I am really grateful for their support in joining us to beat dementia,” said Sir Jackie.

Darlington and Stockton Times:

Fifty million people around the world have dementia and unless a cure is found, one in three people born today will die with the disease.

Croft Circuit manager, Tracey Morley said: “As a family we suffered first hand too, as we watched my father's condition deteriorate with this disease, we sadly lost him in 2020. I feel there is a great link here for Croft Circuit to support such a worthwhile charity."

Croft Circuit will take charitable donations this racing season for this cause via official outlets at race meetings. Anyone who would like to help Croft Circuit raise funds for Race Against Dementia this year, can contact Ms Morley via email at or call 01325 721815. Further details can also be found by visiting
