Red Bull commits to Apico 2-Stroke Festival
The world’s premier energy drink brand will support the three-round Apico 2-Stroke Festival series in 2019 and beyond..
Red Bull backs a huge range of motorsport events around the world and is keen to support ground-breaking events like the Apico 2-Stroke Festival. This year the company went all-in by making the famous Red Bull Straight Rhythm head-to-head race in California for two-strokes only – and it hasn’t stopped there by showing love for the two-strokes in the UK.
Red Bull athlete support is second to none in the world of motorsport including competitors such as world champion motocross superstars Tony Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings, plus Supercross stars like Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin.
Red Bull will be in attendance at all three festival rounds in 2019, starting at round one on May 25-26 at the legendary Marshfield Moto Parc in Wiltshire. Red Bull want to start by working with the grassroots of the sport and believe the festival is the ideal place to start after attending Sellindge Mx last year the brand bought into the atmosphere of the event and really like vibe and focus for everyone to enjoy themselves both on and off track.
The brands passion for motorsport in general is second to none however they’ve been absent from UK Motocross events for a while and feel that’s all changed as the brand is 100% behind the petrol heads of the sport.
Red Bull are in talks with their UK-supported riders to attend some of the events in 2019, like last year when KTM factory rider Jonny Walker raced at the final round in Kent.
Event organiser, Dave Willet: “To be working alongside such a huge global brand so early on at this stage is insane. After meeting the Red Bull team and discussing future plans it really pleased me to have such a cool creative bunch of individual sharing the same passion as we do. This is very exciting times for UK motocross as a whole not just the 2-stroke revolution.”The dates for the 2019 season are as follows:
May 25th and 26th – Marshfield MX, Wiltshire
August 3rd and 4th – Iron Works Moto Parc
September 21st and 22nd – Sellindge MX, Kent
