Mid Wales crowds revved up for tonight
The stunning hillside track at St. Harmon, just outside Rhayader, Mid- Wales, will reverberate to the sound of competition motorcycles this evening (June 1) when the long-awaited return of the PAR Homes/Bodenham Enterprise Park/Steve Rowlands & Sons sponsored Welsh Open Motocross Championship takes place.
And there’s a brilliant national-class entry taking part, with top UK GP stars Tommy Searle, Estonian rider Harry Kullas as well as Adam Sterry, Jake Millward & Stephen Clarke.
Also starring in this fantastic line up are Dan Thornhill, Calum Mitchell & John Adamson who will hoping to field a strong challenge along with top locals Alex Walton and Zac Stealey in front of the large crowd at the Cwmythig Hill circuit and hoping to earn some of the big prize money on offer. Also making the trip to Cwmythig are AMCA stars Tony Craig and James Mackrel.
Jonny Groves of Shape n Scape has been busy giving the spectacular track a huge facelift, which includes a downhill ski jump, wall of death berm and the infamous 65ft finish line table top jump as well as a 125 ft uphill triple jump and rhythm section. New for 2022 is a spectator area on the uphill triple jump.
With practice at 5.45pm and the first race at 6.45pm there’s a slickly run ten-race programme, three races per group, Pro/Experts, Clubman/Veterans and Novices/Ladies/Beginners, with the popular Grand Final “dash for cash” race at the end of the evening for the top Pro/Experts on the night.
The circuit, virtually the whole of which can be seen from any one vantage point, also has a full trackside public address system, keeping the large crowds informed (4,000 spectators turned out for the event the last time is was held in 2019) will be top motocross commentator Chris Czora.
As well as the ten races, there are trade stands, good catering facilities, licensed bar, a tarmac drive into the circuit with excellent hard parking and permanent toilets - everything for the family to enjoy a good night of entertainment.
