Apico 2-Stroke Festival – British Championship open to all

When the Apico 2-Stroke Festival opens for a weekend of action-packed motocross racing over the 22nd and 23rd of July 2023, a number of ACU-sanctioned British Championship titles will be up for grabs.

But, says organiser Dave Willet, “interested riders shouldn’t be put off by the title, as the classes are also all about fun, and are open to all abilities, whether that’s at club level or those recreational riders who prefer to ride at practice days.”

On the 125cc-front, any rider aged 15 and over can race on a dual adult licence which means youth riders who would normally enter the Youth 125 category, could move up and race with the adults, race for prize money and race for the chance to be crowned the ACU British 125 Two-Stroke Champion.

The ACU British Open 2-Stroke class is also open to riders with different skill sets and, again, there’s prize money on offer as well as the British title.

“The racing at the Festival is for anyone looking for an action-packed weekend full of premix fun,” explained Willet. “There really is something for all riders and they don’t need to be out at the front of the pack to enjoy the vibe and get stuck in. Obviously the Red Bull Pro Stroke Nationals are for the hard core Pro and ProAm guys, however, when it comes to grass-roots racing with a British crown in the mix, any competent 125cc or 250cc rider who fancies a go will be welcome. What’s more, if any of the over 15-year-old 125cc riders reckon they can mix it with the adults, we will be more than happy to help them.

“The racing has been awesome to watch over the years,” added Willet, “and we can’t wait to see what this year will bring.”
