Whitby is a hardpack track and has in previous years held prestigious events such as a round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship, along with many national and club level races. The circuit offers great viewing for spectators in front of the impressive backdrop of Whitby bay. The Skelder Bank track is widely recognised as one of the best venues in the North East and is always popular with both the riders and race fans alike.
Back in 2014 Whitby hosted a round of the Official ACU British Motocross Championship where we saw Tommy Searle who was riding for team CLS Kawasaki Monster Energy at the time win the MX1, whilst Matiss Karro who at the time was riding for Wilvo Forkrent KTM won the MX2. It will be interesting to see Tommy Searle return to the MX1 this year riding the Crendon Fastrack Honda team to see if he can take home the chequered flag once again.
The weekend of July 30th & 31st will see the 65cc, Small Wheel 85cc, Big Wheel 85cc, 125cc, 250cc, MX2 and MX1 riders take to the Skelder Bank circuit.
The 2021 weekend at Whitby saw some close battles across all classes with eager hearts fighting to take home first place. With the impressive tabletops overlooking the sea and Whitby itself, it’s sure to grant immaculate views that immerse the riders and spectators.
The Revo ACU British Motocross Championship Fuelled by Gulf Race Fuels is the perfect day out for anyone who is interested in motorsport but also those who are looking for a family day out. During your time at the event you will see riders battle it out to the chequered flag in each race as the Championship begins its 2022 season tour before the ACU British Motocross Champions are crowned at the final round on September 10th and 11th.
