Croft Circuit Guide

Croft Circuit in Darlington is one of the UK’s longest and most challenging racing circuits. It hosts the British Touring Car Championship, classic car weekends, Rallycross, and a range of track days, driving experiences, and new starter experiences throughout the year. 

Croft Circuit has a good range of spectator spots, so it’s a popular day out for all. Arriving at Croft Circuit, you’ll notice the picturesque lawns and a compact pit lane with all important amenities nearby. Bike and car track days are supported by a dedicated campsite.

The start-finish straight is probably the tightest corner of any UK circuit, followed by a never-ending right-hander and a Chicane. Then there’s a 90-degree right, super-fast left-right Jim Clark Esses, and the opportunity to pick up even more speed before the Barcroft right-hander.

Driving experiences include Porche Caymans, racing cars, Caterham Sevens, and MINI Coopers for junior drivers. Croft Circuit is also a popular option for corporate events, as it has multiple function rooms and it’s within easy range of the A1 and A19.
