Reigning champion Tommy Searle (Kawasaki), Conrad Mewse (Crendon Fastrack Honda) and Jack Brunell (FUS Geartec Husqvarna) will renew rivalries in January as the first pro-riders confirmed for the 2024 British Arenacross Championship presented by Fix Auto UK.
Earlier this year the motocross stars battled intensely for the coveted title 2023 British Arenacross Champion, with Searle triumphing at the finale in London.
The 34-year-old from Kent followed up his Championship win with overall victory at the Arenacross Festival at Cheshire’s Bolesworth Castle in September.
Conrad Mewse will be hoping to go one better following his stunning series debut earlier this year where he took the title battle with Searle down to the wire.
Entering 2023 for the first time as a fully-fledged ACU British Motocross Championship, the series has been thrilling crowds across the length and breadth of the UK for over a decade and has staged over 100 adrenaline-fuelled shows, entertaining over 300,000 action-hungry fans in the process.
Tommy Searle said: “I’m delighted to be back. I really enjoy Arenacross and can’t wait for it to get started. It’s fantastic for the UK to have a winter motocross championship. Matt and the team do a great job and it’s always exciting to be going to the places on the tour. The crowd love it, so I’m sure most venues will sell out very quickly.”
Conrad Mewse said: “I’m very excited to be back for the 2024 Arenacross British Championship. 2023 was my first season on the tour and I had an awesome time.
“It was such cool atmosphere, so much fun with everyone in the paddock and of course some really close racing so really looking forward to the challenge and hopefully challenging for the title again.”
Jack Brunell said: “I can’t wait to get back to racing the arenas. I feel really strong for 2024 and am looking forward to battling for wins!”
Matt Bates, Arenacross Promoter and Bolesworth Events Managing Director said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to be able to confirm both our reigning British champion in Tommy and his main rivals, Conrad Mewse and Jack Brunell for the 2024 tour.
“Every year we work tirelessly to create a fresh feel with the best riders and best tracks all under the roofs of some of the most iconic city centre venues the UK has to offer. 2024 will be no different as we welcome back Manchester to the tour – the first time since 2018!
“Whilst the new season is still a few months away, excitement is building for the return of Arenacross; rest assured we have plenty of exciting announcements planned that mean a high-octane start to 2024!”
Arenacross is a high-octane show without equal, featuring an electrifying mix of unparalleled indoor motocross racing and fearless freestyle motocross (FMX) action, whilst being simultaneously packed with all-round family fun and edge-of-your-seat entertainment.
