Calling all youth motocross racers! If you’re not already booked-in to compete at this weekend’s Apico Two-Stroke Festival at Sellindge in Kent then you need to pester your folks big-style and get them to commit to attending the best grassroots-racing weekend of the year because by doing so you could win a £1,250 pucka prize package from title sponsors Apico.
Unlike last year when just one rider took home the big prize, this time around the best MX fest on this planet will be rewarding four different riders – one each from the Auto, 65, SW85 and BW85 classes.
But it’s not as simple as rocking up and kicking ass. To ensure that the right riders take home the big prizes, festival head honcho and all-round two-stroke nut Dave Willet is asking four of the festival’s pro riders – Mel Pocock, Nathan Watson, Billy Bolt and Bradley Smith – to help decide who the worthy winners will be.
And to do that they’ll be looking for the riders that shine brightest during the track walks and tuition sessions that the fast four will be offering up for free all weekend long – so big smiles, using your Ps and Qs, being open to fresh ideas and giving 100 per cent at all times will put you somewhere in the running.
Of course, you’ve got to be in it to win it and flabbergastingly there all still spaces on the line in all four groups so if you’re not already entered then don’t mess about.
