Bumper 13th year for UK Supercross

1 of 1

The Future West ACU/FIM British Supercross Championship reaches its 13th birthday this year.

The long-running British Supercross Championship that usually kicks off at Sheffield will this year fire up at Birmingham's NEC as part of the Carole Nash International Motorcycle and Scooter Show on Saturday, November 28th.

The ten-day annual motorcycle show that dwarfs all other UK shows will host two rounds of the British Supercross Championship on consecutive weekends. Round one will be Saturday, November 28, with round two on Saturday, December 5.

In addition to the two rounds of British Supercross action the track at the NEC will not be sitting dormant during the rest of its ten day run, daily Supercross demos will be held four times a day on none race days.

The sprawling Hall 5 at the NEC will be transformed into an off-road zone including a Supercross track twice the size of the normal arena style venues with seating for 5000 fans.

Future West’s John Hellam said "It's a good progression for our series to start off at the Carole Nash Motorcycle Show.

"With an annual attendance of around 160,000 it is a great opportunity to introduce motorcycle enthusiasts of all kinds to British Supercross."

The series then moves to the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday, January 23. Liverpool will play host to its third annual visit for one night only.

The Echo Arena will be the only Northern stop of the Championship this season as Sheffield will be hosting its first-ever British round of the FIM Indoor Enduro World Cup on October 31.

The fourth round of the series will once again be held at The O2 Arena in London on Saturday, January 30th.
