Lucky 13 For British Supercross

Lucky 13 For British Supercross


It is hard to believe the Future West ACU/FIM British Supercross Championship will reach its 13th birthday in 2009. 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 long 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 28th with round two on Saturday, December 5th. 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.

If you subscribe to the bigger is better theory when it comes to Supercross tracks then you are in for a real treat at Birmingham. 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. If you are planning to attend it would be a good idea to book early with only 5000 seats being installed.

Future West Spokesman 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 The British Supercross Championship, its riders, fans and the off-road world in general all in the indoor comfort of the NEC.”

After the first two rounds at the NEC the series will move on to the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday, January 23rd. 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 31st. The Liverpool Echo Arena is part of the impressive Albert Dock redevelopment complex which boosts a ton of tourist attractions, restaurants, pubs and hotels. The fourth round of the series will once again be held at The O2 Arena in London on Saturday, January 30th. The O2 complex is recognized as the best of its kind in the world and will play host to the series grand finale for the third consecutive year.
