Both local and national motorsport fans of all disciplines can look forward to another great season with a wide variety of events all set to take place at Croft Circuit, near Darlington in 2009.
Once again, the two most popular motorsport championships in the country head to the North Yorkshire track with British Superbikes and British Touring Cars all taking centre stage while the calendar is complemented by a range of club and national class racing throughout the year.
Retaining the date slot from last season, the British Superbike Championship takes place over the weekend of September 12th to 13th as some of the world's best two-wheeled stars converge on the tricky 2.13-mile international circuit and also making a welcome return is the British Touring Car Championship which visits Croft on June 13/14th and boasts another healthy field including Ford returning to the series.
Rallycross is well catered for with rounds of the British and Open Championships scheduled as well as the exciting Superprix which sees some of Europe's top drivers in attendance, and to round the year off, the massively-popular Christmas Stages Rally takes place on December 27th.
The British Sprint Championship heads for Croft on Easter Monday (April 13th) and in addition, there are rounds of numerous club championships on two, three and four wheels.
For the most part, prices have not been increased and remain at 2008 levels and with accompanied children aged 15 and under admitted free with an adult, it represents fantastic value for money.
