AC/DC front man Brian Johnson returns to track that got him hooked on motor racing. This time he’ll be a competitor.
As if there were not already enough compelling reasons to visit Croft Circuit’s Nostalgia Weekend (August 2-3) with its irresistible blend of fast cars, wheel-to-wheel racing and vintage music and dress, a special guest is now set to rev anticipation into overdrive.
The man famous for such rock anthems as Highway to Hell, Back in Black, Hells Bells and You Shook Me All Night Long will take to the Croft circuit in the Historic Touring Cars class next week. He’ll be driving a ‘64 Mini Cooper that he purchased last year after driving it in his television series CARS THAT ROCK WITH BRIAN JOHNSON.
A serious car guy whose first experience of high-octane action came at Croft when he went to watch an MG race at the North Yorkshire venue in the mid-1960s, the Sarasota, FL-based Englishman – originally from Tyne and Wear – has been competing in historic events in the United States and Europe for the past couple of decades.
