The annual Aberdare Park Road Races will take place in South Wales on August 3 and 4, promising two days of non-stop action around the 0.9-mile wooded track.

Bikes as small as 50cc two-strokes will compete alongside race-prepped 125s, alongside other classes including screaming 600cc supersports. Additionally, Supermotos will be in attendance, as well as classic superbikes up to 750cc, and even race modified Honda CB500s and Suzuki Bandit 600s.

Parades will also take place, with other attractions also including trade stalls, and a number of hot and cold food stalls.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be forming a working partnership with Greenlight TV to get Aberdare Park onto national TV and beyond,” Aberdare Park Race Director, Derek Smith said.
