Hawk­stone fes­ti­val of leg­ends

Classic Dirtbike - - News -

Hawk­stone Park and MX go to­gether like bread and but­ter – if you’ve not been to the Shrop­shire cir­cuit then you’ve missed out. Luck­ily, the Hawk­stone Leg­ends MX gives you the best rea­son of all to go to the cir­cuit – some fab­u­lous MX rac­ing. Last year’s in­au­gu­ral event laid the foun­da­tions for big­ger and bet­ter in 2017.

There was a slight hic­cup when a date clash meant the event had to be pulled for­ward to Au­gust 27/28, but ev­ery­thing is on track for a great event.

With com­men­tary and in­ter­views by Jack Bur­ni­cle and Rob Kin­sey and su­per­stars of MX such as world cham­pi­ons Gra­ham Noyce and Neil Hud­son, and top UK stars of their day such as Bryan Goss, Peter Mathia, Roger Har­vey, Dave Wat­son and Alan Clough for them to in­ter­view, the breaks be­tween races are sure to be en­ter­tain­ing.

As for the rac­ing it­self, how about two days of Toughsheet Evo Cham­pi­onship rac­ing, West Mid­lands Evo rac­ing, the Frank Mercer Memorial Tro­phy and lots of track time from all sorts of rac­ers. Au­gust 28 will be the Leg­ends day when past masters and leg­ends take to the track. It’s £10 to get in, or £25 for a car, go along soak up the atmosphere, min­gle, meet and have a great bank hol­i­day.
