While other races charge a significant amount of cash to spectators, the all-new Apico 2-Stroke Festival with the Red Bull Pro Stroke National is totally FREE to come and watch this weekend! There are British two-stroke titles up for grabs for modern and Evo bikes. And the Red Bull Pro Stroke National has attracted some of Britain’s top riders like Conrad Mewse, Adam Sterry, Dylan Walsh, James Dunn, Josh Gilbert, Jake Nicholls, Stephen Clarke, Florian Miot and lots more…
The two-day 2021 event, at the popular old-school Sellindge track in Kent on September 4-5, will once again feature lots of racing for two-stroke riders of all ages, abilities and bikes – including full ACU British two-stroke championship titles up for grabs in the 125, Open and Evo/ Super Evo classes. This is the very essence of the racing at the Apico 2-Stroke Festival, with top riders alongside clubmen, amateurs and youths for two days of action.
But within the weekend there will also be classes for Pro/ Expert plus Clubmen MX1 and MX2 riders – on their choice of two-stroke or four-stroke bikes – as they bid to become the first Red Bull Pro Stroke National champions.
The Apico 2-Stroke Festival was born in 2017 as a fun celebration of racing like it used to be, aimed at grass-roots, two-stroke riders and fans in a weekend of fun for all the family. UK mega distributor Apico was on board right from the moment it was announced.
Driven on by the massive success of the events, Red Bull got involved and supported the Apico 2-troke Festival from 2018. Now the energy drink giant wants to go even bigger – giving full backing to a major UK MX race event for the first time in a decade.
Red Bull backs a huge range of motorsports around the world and is keen to support ground-breaking events like the Apico 2-Stroke Festival as it acts as a clear pathway for talent to shine. It gives riders the chance to prove their talent to Red Bull and maybe take the next step to becoming a pro rider.
Organiser Dave Willet said: “Over the past year the world has changed and we want the fun of the Festival to be available for everybody – whatever they ride. Off-road is one big family so we feel it’s only fair that everyone – whatever bike they ride – can share in the fun of this great event with two-strokes and four-strokes sharing the same weekend.
“And it’s testament to the people in charge at Apico, Dylan Brown and his wife Anna, that they have not only been fully behind the Festival since its inception but now have embraced the event merger with Red Bull as a hugely positive leap forward for the sport in the UK. I can’t thank them enough.”
