The Pozzani Silkolene Shorttrack Championship climbs up to the Buxton Speedway track in the breathtaking surroundings of the Peak District for round five of the national championship.

Local hero and HM Plant Honda rider Ade Collins will want to repeat  last year’s win at Buxton but Jacopo Monti is on fantastic form after the last round at Stoke.

But neither will have an easy ride with the likes of 2009 champ Peter Boast, three-times UK champ Marco Belli, Richard Mason, Glyn Pocklington, Tom Woolley, and Ben Baker in the mix

Support class's include the ever popular Redmax Thunderbikes, Arrow Engineering Juniors and mad mini bikes.

It all kicks off on Sunday, August 1, with practice starting 11am and racing at 1pm.

The track is at Dale Head Lane, Axe Edge, near Buxton, Derbyshire.
