Day of Champions: Event returns to Silverstone MotoGP for 2022

1 of 3

The Day of Champions charity event is back with all of the most popular elements returning after a Covid-enforced absence. A ride-in, paddock access, pitlane walk, and charity auctions are all planned, with MotoGP stars joining the fun and games.

The event will kickstart the 2022 British Grand Prix on the Thursday before the Monster Energy British MotoGP round at Silverstone on August 4. Day of Champions is one of the major fundraising events for British-based charity Two Wheels for Life – the official charity of MotoGP.

Day of Champions was cancelled in 2020 and was forced to adapt and change in 2021 because of the pandemic and restrictions.

“We are so grateful for the kindness of all of those at MotoGP and at Silverstone for being so willing to assist in our dream of getting Day of Champions back on the calendar,” said Two Wheels for Life founder, Andrea Coleman.
 
“The past two years have been hard work for all charities, and we have been fighting back from a huge drop in fundraising as a result of the pandemic.
 
“Day of Champions has always been a foundation of our fundraising activities so not being able to run in 2020 and having to change the way it worked in 2021 forced us into making many changes to ensure we were still able to keep funding the essential work our charity partner Riders for Health does in Africa.

“We can’t wait to see everyone at Silverstone again this year and we are really looking forward to seeing a capacity crowd, all of the elements of Day of Champions that people love so much, and being able to give everyone a great day out.”

Ticket prices for general admission start from just £25 if pre-booked, or £30 on the day, head to the Silverstone website to get yours.
