Hawk­stone Park

Classic Dirtbike - - Sporting Action -

This leg­endary cir­cuit in Shrop­shire, with its fear­some hill, has been the bench­mark for Mx­ers to step up to for nearly 70 years. Although there were events held at Hawk­stone prior to the Sec­ond World War, the mo­men­tum didn’t re­ally start un­til the 1940s. The con­di­tions at Hawk­stone are par­tic­u­larly tough with the sur­face be­ing de­scribed as a loamy sand and cir­cuit new­com­ers who shut off when land­ing from jumps soon find them­selves stalling as they sink in. On the other hand the sur­face breaks away at the top of the hill and ex­poses a shelf of rock which soon be­comes slick and can cause even the ex­pert riders trou­ble.
