Fans can see a variety of racing cars from throughout the ages at the CSSC’s Croft Anniversary event with machines from the 1950s through to the 2000s including hatchbacks, saloons and single seaters taking to the track.

The one-day meeting will see qualifying take place throughout the morning before racing gets underway after the lunch break.
