TAKE PART IN SOME ‘GENTLEMANLY’ RAC­ING

Dress up, act posh and thrash the nuts off your cus­tom bike

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature - Jor­dan Gib­bons, Se­nior Re­porter

The main event of the Malle Mile is a se­ries of head-to-head grasstrack sprint races for cus­tom and clas­sic mo­tor­cy­cles. The for­mat is sim­ple – two rid­ers line up and place their left hand on their hel­mets then the flag drops, their clutches dump and it’s a mad sprint to the line. This year every­one will race the qual­i­fiers on the Satur­day with the big fi­nale on Sun­day. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a Hill Climb Slalom for scrambler bikes as well as the Moto Polo Cham­pi­onships (it’s pretty much what it says on the tin). Our pick is the Roughs Course, which is a tri­als course in­spired by the agility course at Crufts, al­though this track has a ‘flam­ing hoop of death’.

As well as the rac­ing, there’s loads more fun events such as an open air, drive-in mo­tor­cy­cle cinema, a cus­tom bike show and the le­gendary af­ter-party. En­tries are still open for both the sprint and the slalom. O Info: Kef­in­g­ton Hall, near Or­p­ing­ton on Fri­day-su­un­day, June 30-July 2. See www. mal­lelon­don for more details.
