CIRCUIT BIOGRAPHY

  
Close to the urban centres of Darlington, Middlesbrough, Newcastle and York, Croft Circuit brings the BTCC to the northeast of England and thousands of passionate race fans. Though a relatively recent returnee to the BTCC calendar in the late nineties, the 2.1-mile circuit has been developed for over 50 years into a top-flight racing venue.

Coming just before the ‘summer break’, Croft is always a pivotal round as teams seek to pull out an advantage over their rivals before mid-season testing commences. Traditionally a track that favours rear-wheel drive machinery, the North Yorkshire venue is renowned for its challenging, technical nature. Indeed, it is often regarded as the truest all-round test on the BTCC calendar.
