The all-new British Youth Motocross Nationals series will kick off next weekend at Milton MX Park in Northamptonshire, with near full grids across all five classes and we at MX Vice.com are excited by that fact. As proved with the strong line up of Brits at last weekend’s opening GP we appear to be in a good nick when it comes to young talent coming through and we have to maintain that. We’ve been saying that British Motocross is a pretty healthy state right now, especially considering the state of the economy.
As well as hosting the inaugural British Youth Nationals round, Milton MX Park is also the venue for round four of this year’s Maxxis British Championship. The track is a challenging one that always provides close and exciting racing, making it the perfect venue for what continues to be the leading youth championship in the United Kingdom.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better track than Milton MX Park to kick off the series,” declared Gareth Hockey, Director of RHL Activities, the series promoter. “It’s a British Championship track and the British Youth Nationals is a British Championship series, so it’s a perfect fit.”
“We’ve been working on the preparations for the opening round for months now, making sure everything is in place for a successful first event. The series is already proving popular, with all classes now close to capacity, but we still have some wildcard spaces in few classes, should anyone want to race at short notice.”
“It continues to be our aim to work closely with the ACU to make the British Youth Nationals the premier youth series in the United Kingdom, as well as a breeding ground for future British World Champions, starting this weekend in Northamptonshire,” concluded Hockey.
Admission for each round is £5.00, with children under 12 admitted for free.
