Ultimate guide for a weekend at the Track

time clockA weekend away can include a choice of driving experience. Whether you want to ride an F1 racing car or perhaps a Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari. Many packages allow you to experience more than one car, such as a sports car, classic British motor and F1 Maclaren. Driving experiences last up to 3.5 hours and include a briefing and instructor demonstration. These experiences make ideal gifts or are perfect for stag dos as part of a longer weekend in Middlesbororugh or Darlington.

The site hosts a full calendar of motorsport events including F3, TVR, GT and other races. It’s also home to the prestigious British Touring Cars (BTCC) event, and operates also a number of top-notch supercar driving experiences during the year. Several budget-friendly hotel rooms or bed and breakfast properties are located within close distance of the race track.

The 2.1 mile long lap is very challenging, offering plenty of turns and corners. It’s unofficially known as a real driver’s circuit. There is no 70 mph speed limit, little use of cone chicanes to slow you down and even junior drivers have the opportunity to test their skills.

Race meetings

The circuit plays host to a busy calendar of racing meet events including motor-racing, rallycross, bikes, nostalgia races and much more. Whether you just want to watch or want to take part, these events can make up the main show of a Croft Weekender.

Test days

This stadium also plays host to test days, which enable you to bring your own new car or bike and test drive it at speeds you wouldn’t normally be able to. Track days also allow you to bring your own vehicle to drive it at leisure on the track.

Where to Eat

Visitors to the circuit as part of a corporate or large event can have catering arranged. Alternatively there are numerous nearby pubs, hotels and restaurants that serve food.

A croft weekender is likely to be an unforgettable weekend, whether you go to test drive your new car, take part in a race meeting or enjoy one of the many available driving experiences. Stag dos, corporate events, birthdays or just for fun – any excuse to go is a good one.

With plenty of cheap accommodation and eating options just a short drive away and the city of Middlesborough just 20 miles away, a trip to Croft can make up part of a fabulous boys weekend.
