Cad­well Park in Lin­colnshire is more known for road rac­ing but it has oc­ca­sion­ally hosted proper rac­ing too as our im­age of an MX GP shows.

Lin­colnshire’s Cad­well Park race cir­cuit is no stranger to close rac­ing, though gen­er­ally it is on the tar­mac cir­cuit. How­ever, there have been a num­ber of top line mo­tocross races held there too. Though our im­age is of Dot rider Pat Lam­per and Greeves man Alan Clough, both of whom put up a de­cent per­for­mance on the 1.1 mile cir­cuit marked out on the in­field area, it was to be 20-year-old Bel­gian Joel Robert’s day as he made his im­pact on the mo­tocross world. In a meet­ing-long tus­sle with UK’S Dave Bick­ers, which saw Bick­ers win the first leg and Robert the sec­ond, it was the Bel­gian who would leave Cad­well on top of the world.
