Charity Track Walk: Saturday evening (June 15) will see the stars of the BTCC and TOCA support championships put their best foot forward for a public track walk jointly in aid of Children with Cancer and the Alzheimer’s Society.
The track walk will begin as soon as racing finishes on Saturday (c.18:15), with drivers and fans invited to gather at the end of the pit garages near to the pit-lane exit. Drivers already confirmed to take part include joint championship leader Rory Butcher, Yorkshire’s own Dan Cammish and Senna Proctor, two-time BTCC Independents’ Champion Tom Ingram, race-winners Stephen Jelley and Matt Simpson and Team HARD rookie Michael Crees.
Fans are asked to donate what they can to join the stars of the show on a lap of the circuit on foot. Signed memorabilia is also up for auction on the Croft Facebook page too: www.facebook.com/croftcircuit/
