The Goodwood of the North!

Posted on Aug 01, 2012 by Paul Tiernan

Chaps in the North face a fair old trek to the Revival each year. Now, thanks to the Croft Circuit near Darlington, if you can't make it to Goodwood, you can still get your fix of vintage racing...and dressing up. The Nostalgia Weekend, dubbed the Goodwood of the North, is in it's 3rd year and is already a well-respected and attended event. Fans will be able to see more than 240 vintage racing saloons, GT and single-seater sportscars, from the 1940s through to the 1970s, battle it out on the track, including vehicles once driven by Al Unser and Derek Bell. There will also be a display of more than 400 classic cars and World War II military vehicles, as well as music and fashion from across the eras. A flypast of a Spitfire is planned to celebrate the circuit's connection to the Second World War when it was used as a bomber base. A dozen classic buses will be on hand to transport visitors to and from the event. The organisers state that "dressing in period style is a must".
