Two of Britain’s race tracks will celebrate major anniversaries this summer as Croft hits 50 and Cadwell Park marks 80 years since its first competitive event.
Croft Autodrome hosted its first meeting, the Daily Mirror Trophy, on August 3 1964. On August 2/3 2014 the fifth Nostalgia Weekend will include Historic Touring Cars, Historic Formula Ford and Historic Formula 3.
Meanwhile, the VSCC will honour 80 years of Cadwell Park with its annual race meeting at the Lincolnshire track. Cadwell Park was first used for motorbike racing in 1934 on a chalk track, although it was the post-war era before it came into regular use.
