We do not charge for test rides and we do not guarantee a test ride when purchasing your ticket. We will not operate a pre-booking system for test rides for the 2017 event. Visitors are required to book test rides directly with the manufacturer on the day - arrive early as test rides are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Riders are required to bring their own leathers, gear and helmet.


A round of the UK Speedway Championships will take place on Saturday evening in the Maxxis Arena. Day tickets do not include access to watch Speedway. Tickets to watch the speedway can be purchased on the day for £16.00
