Croft preview

26191709993_a81f6147fa_kIt’s a mixture of sprint racing and endurance for the 2CV Championship at Croft this weekend. After two 15 minute qualifying session on Saturday morning, the first of the two 20 minute sprints takes place at 1.40pm, with the second at 1.45pm, followed by another qualifying session for Enduro at 5.40pm.

Defending Champion Lien Davies will be out to repeat his success at Oulton Park in the first race, but with a win under his belt at Oulton too, Matthew Hollis will be looking for more.

There are 18 cars taking part in the sprints, with that definite family feel about the weekend as usual with 2CV’s. Sandro and Luca Proietti proved their pace and were first on the road at Oulton, before a jump start penalty took the win away.

Having watched from sidelines at Oulton, 2CV legend Pete Sparrow will be out in race one and the Enduro, while fellow stalwart David O’Keeffe will be joining in for the Enduro too, which runs on Sunday for two hours from 3.45pm. Also returning is former champion Alec Graham, adding to an already competitive field.

It may not be the fastest race of the day, but it’s likely to be closest.
