    Survivor guide: Croft

    Survivor guide: Croft

    Croft Circuit is located near Dalton on Tees, North Yorkshire. It is one of the longest, most challenging circuits in the UK and the North East’s only international racing circuit.

    The circuit

    Offering over two miles of sweeping, super-fast curves, long straights and slow corners, Croft Circuit hosts many prestigious car and motorcycle races. The circuit also offers a range of thrilling experiences.

    Driving experiences

    Track days enable drivers to take their own cars onto the track. Croft circuit also offers novice driver courses (ARDS); ‘New starter driver Mini Cooper S training’ (under 17’s) and corporate experiences.

    Dreams come true

    The chance to drive a racing car or Italian and German super-cars on this scintillating track is, however, the ‘bee’s knees’. There are four possible experience options:

    • ‘Driving’: Take three super-cars onto the track in succession
    • ‘Thrill’: Take one car onto the track
    • ‘Racing Car’: Several laps each in a Porsche Cayman, Formula Forward 2000 and Caterham Seven.
    • ‘Ultimate Super Car’: Multiple laps each in a Porsche Cayman, Lamborghini Aventador, Audi R8 and Ferrari 430

    Other available cars include the:

    • Aston Martin V8 Vantage
    • Ginetta G20
    • Lamborghini Gallardo
    • Lamborghini LP670 Murciélago

    Following an initial briefing, drivers are taken round the track (three laps) in a Mazda3 MPS driven by an instructor before being ‘let loose’ on the track.

    Croft survival tips

    Considering the sheer power of these cars, it is obviously necessary to prevent motoring accidents and potentially serious driver injuries by following a few simple safety guidelines:

    • Watch and listen carefully during briefings and demonstration laps
    • Follow instructions at all times
    • Eat lightly before and drink plenty of fluids (no caffeine or alcohol) during the experience
    • Take breaks as and when necessary to prevent vehicle accidents caused by tiredness

    Sadly, many car crashes near Croft Circuit are caused by drivers seemingly believing they are still on the track. To prevent causing road traffic accidents and the chance of suffering potentially fatal injuries by high speed vehicle collisions, adjusting your driving style back to normal road conditions is imperative.

    The aftermath

    Injuries by high speed accidents can have long-term physical and financial implications for all involved. If you were hurt in an accident on the road someone else was responsible for, you may be able to claim for passenger or driver injury compensation.
