Five-times world champion David Knight MBE is entered as part of a three man team, riding in the International VMXdN race representing team Isle of Man at the 2023 VMXDN Foxhill on August Bank holiday weekend at the iconic Foxhill Grand Prix circuit in Wiltshire.
The team is consisting of-
- David Knight MBE who will be riding a KTM 300 with number 101
- Danny McCanney riding a Honda 250 with number 102
- Gavin Hunt riding a KTM 300 with number 103
The IOM team is an added interest into an already stacked field. The event is looking to be bigger and better than the awesome 2022 event which many who attended say is the greatest race in the UK calendar. Event promoters Dave King and Rob Walters are preparing for the event to be 50% bigger than the inaugural race.
The promotion team say: “We are flat out putting plans in place for a new 70 acre car parking facility, which will be on the top side of the circuit to get the day spectators in cars off the road quickly to ease any of the traffic entering and exiting the circuit. This will leave the paddock with more space to park both the riders as well as camping. We have a crew of specialist parking attendants to make sure we make the most of the space with the correct access points needed.
“We also have an all new security firm in place consisting of ex-police and service personnel – all very respectful but these guys don’t take any messing about!
There will be added infrastructure for 2023 with regard to toilets and bins, as well as four times the volume in food and drink suppliers to handle the crowds expected… its going to be awesome.”
