Negotiations have been concluded successfully between Rockingham and Croft resulting in Rockingham's 2004 round of the British Superbike Championship being run at Croft, the first time the BSB Championship will visit the North of England

Ashley Pover - Chief Executive Officer of Rockingham Motor Speedway Limited said:

"When first contacted by Croft, we were reluctant to give up our BSB meeting this July. However, I had a meeting with Croft Director Trevor Chaytor-Norris and we have agreed that, for one year only, the Rockingham BSB round would move to Croft.

BSB will be back at Rockingham in 2005. We are looking at giving this meeting a 'Days of Thunder' makeover with more off track entertainment and a live band that will appeal to a wider bike audience. This agreement is a commercial deal for Rockingham, in what is proving to be an extremely busy year for us."

Trevor Chaytor-Norris - Director of Croft Promosport Limited said:

"Croft is delighted to have done a deal with Rockingham which enables a round of the most prestigious national Motorcycle championship to come to the North of England for 2004. This deal will be a boost for the championship with a new venue on the calendar and offer live racing to a region starved of top quality motorcycle sport.

A round of BSB will compliment the other major motorsport championships held at Croft including the British Touring Car Championship and the British Formula Three Championship. Croft has a long tradition of motorcycle racing and very much looks forward to welcoming the teams, competitors and spectators for what will be a fabulous weekend of motorcycle action."
