Future West has now confirmed that London’s spectacular O2 Arena will again play host to the final round of the official British Supercross Championship.
Currently rated as the World’s number one arena, the O2 will once again rumble to the sounds of Supercross on Saturday January 31st just one week after the Liverpool double header on January 23rd and 24th.
The British Supercross Championship series will kick of at Sheffield Arena on Saturday October 25th marking the 12th consecutive return to the South Yorkshire venue affectionately referred to as the home of British Supercross. “We would like to expand the series and are exploring the possibilities of introducing other venues which could happen as early as this year” said Future West’s John Hellam. “We currently have three of the best venues in the country and would like to maintain that standard throughout the expansion of the series by adding quality venues each year until the sport reaches its maximum potential in the UK” adds Hellam.
This year’s calendar has been tightened up and will end three weeks earlier than last year to avoid any possible calendar conflicts with the Under 21 and Hawkstone International events giving all of the British riders an unobstructed shot at the new British Supercross Championship class title as well as the SX1 and SX2 pro titles.
The popular youth and clubman classes will also once again have national titles with some changes to the structure of the schoolboy classes, which will be announced shortly. The recent long-term exclusive agreement reached between the ACU and Future West for British Supercross championship has given the series huge credibility as an additional major British Championship to compliment the outdoor Maxxis championship.
