And organisers say spectators are in for two days of two-wheeled madness!

The Bridgestone British Masters is one of the UK’s largest motocross championships and takes place over six rounds at some of the UK’s best tracks.

“FatCats Moto Parc circuit is a very technical track consisting of deep ruts and large jumps which will test the riders’ capabilities,” said a competition spokesperson.

“This is the first time the Bridgestone British Masters will be taking place at FatCats Moto Parc and to celebrate its attendance the track will be altered for this extra-special event so all riders are on a level playing field.
