Big time Moto Cross returns to the famous circuit Canada Heights on Sunday March 24th when round 2 of the Maxxis British Moto Cross Championships comes to Swanley in Kent and again this prestigious meeting will again be supported by the News Shopper.
Known as the “South’s most spectacular circuit”, Canada Heights came be reached by following the AA signposts at Junction 3 of the M20/M25 interchange and for those of you with Sat Navs you will need to tap in BR8 8DX to get your directions.
The organisers, the Sidcup Motorcycle Club are making this event very special and again have done extensive work to give spectators easy access to all parts of the venue with superb viewing areas.
The British Championship is recognised as one of the most competitive domestic Moto Cross championships in the world and has paved the way for World Champions in the past and this event which is organised by the Sidcup Moto Cycle Club has earned a good reputation over the years as being one of the better rounds of the series.
It is a great adrenalin rush to watch the bravery of the riders jumping to great heights over the hilly course, soak up the atmosphere of the very best riders in the country battling for honours and the raw excitement of this sport is a shock to the system.
The tension of 40 bikes on the start line and the crazy first corner charge must be seen to be believed. The chestnut fenced circuit lets you get so close to the action you can feel it through your boots! If you enjoy photography, this is definitely the motor sport for you!!
