SPEED­WAY THRILLS

Peter­bor­ough Pan­thers take on the New­cas­tle Di­a­monds and campers see it for FREE!

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

An of­fi­cial round of the UK Speed­way Cham­pi­onships will see the Peter­bor­ough Pan­thers take on the New­cas­tle Di­a­monds in the Maxxis Arena on Satur­day night.

It’s a jaw drop­ping spec­ta­cle ev­ery­one should see at least once. The 500cc methanol-burn­ing sin­gles only have one gear and no brakes. Trav­el­ling at speeds of up to 80mph on a loose sur­face, the riders pow­er­slide through the turns on full lock, shale spray­ing out as they try to find grip.

Only campers get in to see the speed­way for free. There’s plenty of space and tick­ets are only £30 (when booked as a group of four or more) plus chil­dren un­der 16 get into the fes­ti­val for free! With more stalls, more test rides, more clubs and more stunt shows, plus a full round of DTRA flat track racing dur­ing the day, it’s go­ing to be a packed week­end.

A camp­ing ticket also get you ac­cess to the Yamaha Dark Side party on both Fri­day and Satur­day night with live mu­sic and a li­censed bar. If you can’t camp you can still get in to see the speed­way, but you’ll need to pur­chase an ad­di­tional ticket on the gate (£16).
