All the colour, atmosphere and spectacle of Britain’s biggest, brightest motocross family festival will return to Skelder Bank over the weekend of July 20-21 when it hosts round four of the Red Bull Pro Nationals.
After heavy rain forced the cancellation of last year’s event at the picturesque circuit overlooking Whitby, series promoter e22 Sports is eager to make amends to local race fans.
The mix of top-flight Pro adult and Youth racing combined with a host of off-track activities have firmly established the Red Bull Pro Nationals as a family favourite with round two at Weston-super-Mare in mid-May drawing a series record of 10,000 spectators over the weekend.
The racing is an international affair with competitors from eight countries battling to win a slice of a series prize fund that currently stands at over £70,000.
Big money attracts big names and the two Pro classes are stacked with world-class stars including defending champions Nico Aubin (France) and Neville Bradshaw (South Africa) along with current series leaders Kristian Whatley (England) and Steven Lenoir (France).
Away from the track, the focus is firmly on family fun and getting youngsters active. There will be kids’ Motocross Try-Outs throughout the weekend giving younger visitors the chance to learn to ride under qualified supervision and on the Sunday there will be Zorb Balls, bungee trampolines, bouncy castles and appearances from children’s TV favourites Peppa Pig and George, Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam.
And Sunday is the day organisers wheel out the aerial gymnasts of the MX world when the UK’s top Freestyle Motocross riders hit the ramps, backflipping their 100kg machines 40ft above the ground.
Admission is £13 adults, £3 children and £30 for a family of four when booked online.
