Classic Sights And Sounds Set For Croft Historic Festival And Show This Summer

One of the highlights of the northern motorsport scene is set to return to Croft Circuit in mid-August when the bigger and better Historic Festival Weekend and Show takes place (10 - 11 August).

A two-day meet of classics from the 1950s through to the 1980s with something for all the family, the popular meeting at North Yorkshire’s premier race circuit has been an established fixture on the calendar for over a decade in the guise of both the Croft Nostalgia and Croft Retro meeting.

This year, the summer event will offer not just classic racing 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 and showcase classic vehicles from the 1950s through the decades to the 1980s 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, a Hercules and Dioramas will be on display as well as the regular classic and vintage cars.

There will also be a mini train station ride, carousel and hook a duck for the kids, a large tipi with seating where you can relax and enjoy the food and entertainment as well as a food court including a prosecco van.

Live music ranging from the 1950s to the 1980s will sound out across the circuit whilst the ever-popular Colin Bourdiec is back at the track. Northallerton Silver Band.

There will be the usual variety of trade stands for the crowds to enjoy and the friendly atmosphere at Croft Circuit allows everyone to get close to the race cars in the paddock area along with a display of around 600 vehicles of all shapes and sizes pre-1988. There will also be a competition on Sunday for the best dressed in vintage costumes.

Application forms to lodge an interest to enter the displays or have a trade stand are now available to be downloaded here until 5th July 2024 or until all space is allocated, whichever comes first.

Croft’s brand-new Café, Hanger 50, will also be open and serving refreshments over the weekend too.

Ticket prices start at just £18 for adults on Saturday with children aged 15 and under admitted FREE, there is FREE car parking and FREE paddock access.
