About the Event
The Classic Racing Motorcycle Club returns to Croft on the 2nd & 3rd of October with their solo and sidecar machines, recreating the Classic and Post Classic racing scene of the 60’s, 70’s , 80’ and mid 90’s.

There will be a Grand Prix and Historic Race Bike Display and demo as well as the VJMCs Classic Bike Show village with club and trade stands too.
Sunday’s programme features the final rounds of the ACU National Championships - these races have attracted a superb high quality field that have all the ingredients to make spectacular races for the considerable prize money.
No CRMC race meeting would be complete without the sidecars, one of the most spectacular forms of motorsport there is with the “passenger” performing acrobatics to keep all three wheels on the tarmac! There are two sidecar races each day with over 20 full grids, and if you thought this was a man’s game, then think again as half a dozen of the sidecars have lady passengers! Special Guest star is Alex George!
Practice starts at 09.30am on Saturday morning followed by a thirty race programme starting around 11.30am. On Sunday it’s a Midday start to the race programme of eighteen races and two parades.
