BRING YOUR HELMET & PARTY!
Camp for the weekend and you'll gain early access into the show, get to watch speedway, have the opportunity to be the first to sign up for test rides, bag an early bargain plus FREE entry to Yamaha's Dark Side Party.
There’s a couple of extra treats for campers and they’re completely free! On Saturday night the Peterborough Panthers will be running a full championship round of speedway. If you’ve never been to a pukka speedway round (shame on you) then this is your chance to see one. The opposition is yet to be confirmed but if the 2017 round is anything to go by it will be a terrific nights racing.
Campers also get free entry to Yamaha’s Dark Side of Japan party on Friday and Saturday night. The party includes a line-up of the best local tribute acts including Mind the Gap, The Dizzy Miss Lizzys, The Expletives and the incredibly popular Hooker. There’s also a late bar and as the campsite is onsite it's just a short stumble home.
Join us at the Moose Bar for happy hour and get set to rock!
