Once again, we will be providing evening entertainment, bars and food. With economy camping packages we’re hoping that as many of you as possible decide to get the full British Motocross Grand Prix experience.


For the cost of a weekend ticket, you will you get to see not only the premier MXGP and MX2 class, but the fiercely contested 4-stroke EMX250, EMX300 and Honda 150 class.


On Saturday, you will see the riders take part in practice and qualification races for of all the classes. Without a doubt, you’ll see spectacular whips as the top riders enjoy showing off in front of an energetic crowd - something the English are famous for! On Sunday you will be thrilled by some incredible high octane action, with hard fought battles taking place throughout the day - but who will emerge the victor? 


Between races you will have time for some retail therapy in the trade village. Here you will be able to grab GP exclusive deals, snap up some bargains and check out the latest bikes that the top manufacturers have to offer. And while you’re at it, there will be a variety of food stands and bars to keep you fuelled throughout the weekend.

We even have some incredible talent from across the pond with MX Superstar Chad Reed getting into the mix. The British fighters Tommy Searle, Shaun Simpson, Max Anstie and Jake Nicholls will also be out in full force for their county!  At round 11, of 18, the British Motocross Grand Prix will fall at a definitive moment where all the riders are at their peak, and where every point matters.
