Croft Circuit welcomes Darlington and District Motor Club for their Spring Race Meeting this weekend with a two-day event will see seven classes consisting of a wide range of cars battle it out across the North Yorkshire track.

The popular Northern Saloon and Sports Car Championship (NSSCC) will take centre stage with races on both days as rounds three and four take place over the weekend following their first trip out of the season to Snetterton in April.

There will also be classes for the Caterham Academy and the CNC Heads Sports Saloon Car Championship as well as the Scottish Motor Racing Club being well represented with three of its series in action over the weekend.

Darlington and Stockton Times: The popular Northern Saloon and Sports Car Championship comes to Croft this weekend

The Scottish Legends Cars Championship face a busy weekend and lining-up alongside the NSSCC grid will be the Scottish Classic Sports and Saloon Car Championship. The Scottish Hot Hatch Championship, that also includes the Scottish Fiesta ST Cup and the Scottish C1 Cup, will also be competing, whilst for classic fans there will be the Citroen 2CV Championship. The weekend will conclude with a 20-minute Saloon and Sports Car Challenge.

On track action starts at 9.30am on Saturday with qualifying and at midday on Sunday. Adult admission costs £16.50 in advance on both days with accompanied children aged 15 and under admitted free on both days. There is also free car parking and free paddock access.

Meanwhile one of the highlights of the northern motorsport scene is set to return to Croft Circuit this summer when the bigger and better Historic Festival Weekend and Show takes place on August 10 and 11.

This year, the summer event will offer not just classic racing on track but plenty of all-round entertainment for the family to enjoy, including children’s rides and live music.

On track action will come from different classes from the Historic Sports Car Club but there will also be lots of new additions off the circuit to evoke memories of yesteryear.

A Wright Cyclone R3350 and a Rolls Royce Merlin will be attending both days whilst a range of steam engines will be on display as well as the regular classic and vintage cars. Fairground attractions and live music complement the festival as well as trade stands and more than 600 classic cars will be on display.

Application forms to lodge an interest to enter the displays or have a trade stand are now available to be downloaded from until July 5, or until all space is allocated, whichever comes first.
