Lining up on the grid will be a wide variety of classic UK marques including Manx Nortons, BSA Goldstars, Matchless G50s and Triumph Tridents.

Also featuring will be the European manufacturers with Ducatis, Moto Guzzis and BMWs alongside early Japanese machines from Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Honda, giving spectators plenty of variety to watch.

The sidecars are well represented with the likes of BMW and Imp-powered engines as they will battle it out over the 2.1-mile circuit.

As Croft revisits a golden era of racing there will be a packed programme with 26 races set to be held over the course of the weekend as well as on-track parades from the GP Legends, classic solo machines, and classic sidecars.

Sunday’s line-up of racing will also include the ACU Post Classic 1300 Championship, ACU Post Classic 750 Championship, ACU Classic 500 Championship and ACU Classic 350 Championship.
