News Archives | WSB Results | Supermoto Results | British Superbike Results | MotoGP Results |

    The second round of the Vivaldi British Supermoto Championships take place next Monday at the technical Karting North East Circuit, Sunderland.

    Top Supermoto riders will be on show including reigning British Champion Matt Winstanley, former British Champions Christian Iddon and Ady Smith, plus hot shot Freddie Fiorentino and rising star Sam Warren. The top riders will be gunning to take the wins and also the 'Vivaldi Rider of the Day award' where the winner of this prize earns himself 1000 prize money.

    It was an epic battle at the first round at Lydd a couple of weeks ago and no doubt the racing will be more intense this time round. All are now firmly established on the Supermoto scene and each one is gunning for the win. Only 0.4 of a second split Iddon, Fiorentino and Winstanley in one of the races at Lydd and no doubt there will be some fairing bashing going on at Sunderland between the front runners.

    What is Supermoto?

    OK think Moto X, think Enduro, think Speedway and Road Racing and combine the four and that will give you a rough insight into Supermoto. One of the most entertaining forms of motor sport to hit the UK shores for a long time.

    A sport that is steadily making itself a name throughout the country, it will soon be the talk on everyone's lips. One of the most enthralling sports to evolve in Europe in the last few years it has been described as one of the most exciting forms of motor sport to date.

    A combination of skill, fitness and pure insanity is what it takes for you to class as a top Supermoto rider. Combining the high speed of racing on track with the skill of tackling the roughest terrain the riders ability is tested to the limit. With a 70% based tarmac track and 30% based off road section this form of motorsport combines the love of Moto Crossing and Enduro to the pure thrill factor of riding flat out on tarmac.
