RACE fans could be looking forward to better improvements at Croft, if pledges by the new owners of the circuit are carried out.
Running of the north Yorkshire track has been taken over by the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC), who also manage Thruxton and Mallory Park.
Denis Carter, BARC Chief executive, told MCN that for the circuit to be in BSB’s future it needs to be ‘taken up a step,’ and added: “We have plans to add a commentary box and improve camping facilities for the spectators.”
The track is popular among riders for its fast flowing section and tight corners, and it was the scene of one of the great last laps in racing this year when Leon Haslam pegged back Karl Harris by several seconds for the lead in the wet for his debut BSB win.

The land will remain under the ownership of the Chaytor-Norris family and all major developments will be discussed with them first. Trevor Chaytor-Norris said: “We are very pleased to have entered into this partnership with the BARC and am sure will help bring a new and exciting chapter in Croft’s history.”
Next year’s round of the British Superbike Championship is provisionally scheduled for the weekend of August 10, 11 and 12.
