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.
SO.....the MCE Insurance British Superbike season is over, and what a year it's been.

NORTH boys Graeme Gowland and Barry Burrell are looking good for a great potential battle in tomorrow's two Mirror.co.uk BSB-Evo races at Thruxton.
Gowland of Allendale, Northumberland, arrived back with the WFR Honda squad this weekend after missing the first three rounds after breaking his wrist in the first race of the year at Brands Hatch.
And now he is keen to make up for lost time, and has been a consistent top three Evo runner since he jumped back on board yesterday morning.

ALEX Lowes stamped his authority on the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship as he stormed to pole at Thruxton this afternoon.
The Lincolnshire rider grabbed the top spot in his first qualifying session since joining the MSS Colchester Kawasaki squad just over a week ago.
Not only does it make Lowes' first BSB pole, but it is also the first time the team has ever had one of its bikes head the grid.
