Test rides

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 2018 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 Arena. Day tickets do not include access to watch Speedway. Visitors who have a day ticket to the Festival can purchase a ticket on the day to stay to watch the Speedway for an additional £10.00

Is there anywhere I can leave my helmet and leathers?

Yes, there will be a helmet park on site which is sponsored by our chosen charity. The first item will cost £2 and any additional items will be charged £1 per item. Proceeds go to our nominated charity. The helmet park will be open from 9am through to 5.30pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday.


Due to the nature of the activity at this event (loud noise, fast bikes, bike racing) dogs must be kept on a short lead at all times. It is the responsibility of the owner to clear up after their dog. 

Can I bring children?
