The Vets Northern All Comers Closed Circuit Championship, over 10 miles, has become a regular on the calendar at the Croft Motor Racing Circuit, near Darlington. Under the expert supervision of Gavin Russell (Cleveland Coureurs) was his usual large team of helpers from VTTA North Group and clubs affiliated to CTT Teesside DC and they ensured proceedings ran flawlessly. In this third running of the championship a daytime date in October was not available so with some trepidation beforehand it was held on the evening of Wednesday 21 June, following a 'Come and Try It' event. The concerns that riders would be reluctant to travel for an evening event were unfounded with 89 vet entrants (65 in 2021, 72 in 2022).
