BSB Exclusive: Croft vows to be back in 2013
CROFT Circuit has tonight revealed it plans to be back on the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship calendar in 2013.
The news comes just hours after it was revealed the North Yorkshire circuit would not host a round of the leading two-wheel domestic championship in 2012.
Although BSB is now to run a round at Assen in The Netherlands next September, series officials confirmed today that Croft hadn't been lost at Assen's expense, and that it was actually the circuit itself which chose not to host an event.
Croft Circuit currently operates under incredibly tight restrictions following a legal battle a few years ago, where it is only allowed 40 'noisy' days per year.
Tonight, a spokesman for Croft Circuit told Burning Rubber that everyone involved was working hard to try and sort the situation out so that the British Superbike Championship can return to the North East in 2013.
"It's unfortunate that the British Superbike Championship will not be coming to Croft in 2012," he said.
"However, this is not a long term thing. This is simply just for 2012. We are very, very much looking to bring it back in 2013.
"British Superbikes is a very prestigious event and not one we wanted to lose. It's a firm favourite with the fans and we will be working very hard to bring it back to the region."
