Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Been meaning to go for a few years. Interest in motorsport as well as 2 wheels. Have also done a few laps
of Croft in my time
Jon
Another good event is the Easter Monday Sprint, look up the old white mk1 golf, if you get there

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Via our Cultural Attaché from the Industrial Heartlands, we are hoping to get a bit more involved at the Croft event.
Watch this space!!

Try me best - honest! big_smile

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Things are moving forward here. Looks like we will be invited to take part. This could involve a parade lap etc.! More details later!! big_smile

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Excellent, keep us involved, entry is in for easter Monday sprint, always a good event. A parade lap sounds great, not sure I have anything fast enough though, my biggest 'classic' is 400cc. Have got a full set of leathers though...............(if I can still get in them)

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

It looks like there will be space for us at the event. The parade lap will be a gentle affair, given that bikes like my 1919 Triumph model H will be there. The organisers will firm up what role they want us to play fairly soon.

So, does my 35yr old bike fit the brief from Croft?

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

We are awaiting those details from the organisers. Will publish them as soon as they are confirmed.

I checked on the web site. The cut off date seems to be 1st Jan 1978

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Phew, my 1913 TT Triumph just fits in then!

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

1966  100cc Suzuki or 72 Honda on knobblies!   ????

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Just checked, and now confirm the z400 is a 76 so its eligible. Pretty sad I didn't know when it was reg'd really.
Old age.
Anyway, as it hasn't got 'kill me quick' tyres on I'm definitely game
to try and scratch round Croft in a shower of centrestand and footpeg sparks, or bin it trying.
I presume that's what a 'parade' lap is all about?

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Still up for joining in on the parade lap thing, who do I have to contact?

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

If you look on this page of the event you will find an entry form you can download, fill in and submit:

http://www.croftcircuit.co.uk/racing/no … -timetable

Classic Vehicle Booking Form - the bottom of the selection list.  wink

Good luck - it may be full up by now.  hmm

You're never too old to learn something stupid.

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Looks like the wording is classic 'racing' motorcycle, so I have nothing that fits into that category.
Oh well, will probably go down as a 'punter
Cheers anyway

Nil Desperandum, Jon.  neutral

Don't be put off - there is no technical definition of a classic 'racing' motorcycle.
BSA M20s, Tiger Cubs, ES2 Nortons have raced - even Puch Maxis and Mini Motors have.  yikes
You will never know until your entry is submitted, accepted or declined.

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

Good point, strip off the knobblies and headlight, whack some number plate boards on and straight through pipes?
cheers

Re: Croft Nostalgic Weekend

I’ve just got my ‘punter’ tickets. I’ll watch the high speed corners on the knobblies.
