Back on the entry list is Ron Harper from Middlesborough with son Jack in the family`s venerable Spitfire. Ron has been racing this car at Croft since around 1971 so knows his way around.
Another welcome return to a local team is the Claxton Racing team of Bob and son Neil. Bob was recently at the Silverstone round in the Skoda but Neil returns after missing the last 2 CSCC seasons in his Suzuki SC100.
Thomas Carey is back after missing Silverstone with gearbox problems from the previous Thruxton round. The ex-Gary Streat Honda CRX is always a bit of a giant killer against the biggesr class cars.
David Brewis has previously raced a Lotus Elan and a Suzuki in the series but for Croft brings his next machine out a Darrian T90.
Wayne Crabtree like Carey also returns after missing Silverstone. The smart RSR Escort Mark 1 had a tangle with the Mazda at Thruxton but is back for blue oval fans to cheer on at Croft.
For many the Morris Minor V8 sums up the spirit of the series best...built up from a old 1960s Police car by builder Chris Isaacs into an immaculate rumbling race car and has proved very reliable with it too. New owner Craig Percy continues his series commitment and will surely gain new fans.
James Plant provided on of the best spectacles at Silverstone in the amazing Allard V8 with a great sound and controlled driving. Built up by John Plant this is a real old fashioned home made special and returns for a second series outing.
Paul Sibley remains the series stalwart having entered every single round in the ex-Rob Cox 'Black Bullet' Lotus Elan
