It’s back 2022 – Croft Nostalgia Festival

Incorporating the Historic Sports Car Club Race Meeting

 Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th September 2022

I was disappointed when Croft Nostalgia disappeared off the calendar. Croft is a good circuit, conveniently located and with an experienced team able to get cars in and out with the minimum of delay. Excellent period racing with a crowd who embrace the request to dress up Goodwood Revival style. The good news is that it is back and I for one will be there. Croft Nostalgia will take place at the North Yorkshire race track on Sunday 4th September 2022.

After an absence of three years, one of the highlights of the classic car and motorsport scene will see the tenth running of the popular event and promises to be another unforgettable day out as the North East’s premier racing circuit pays homage to yesteryear as part of the Historic Sports Car Club race meeting over the weekend.

The late summer event will appeal to all the family with a host of attractions to keep everyone entertained. There is a blend of live music from the wonderful Daisy Belles, The Ragtime Swing Band and Colin Bourdiec (aka George Formby), as well as plenty for the children with traditional fairground rides including an old-fashioned helter-skelter.

There will be Classic and Vintage car displays where you can see the cars close up and soak up the atmosphere as well as watching them in action during the track parades. Vehicles on display include the Austin-Healey 3000, MG Midget, AMC Hornet Sportabout Gucci Edition, Ford Mustang, classic Triumphs and many, many others.

And why not celebrate the day out in style? All visitors are encouraged to come along dressed in period costumes from the naughty ‘40s, fabulous ‘50s and swinging ‘60s to truly create a sense of yesteryear.

Other attractions include trade stands, Northallerton Silver Band, a unique aeroengine as well as top quality racing over the weekend. There will be lots of food and drink outlets as well as a host of other attractions still to be announced.
