Next round of the Vivaldi British Supermoto Championship heads to the Rock - June 28th 2005

    Series organisers are pleased to announce that the next round of the British Supermoto Championship will be held at the Rockingham Motor Speedway on the 30th and 31st July.

    The format for the weekend at the Corby, Northants circuit will be the same as other championship rounds this year with the Saturday being a practice day for all-comers. Sunday is race-day for SM1, SM2, SM4 and Clubman's Trophy.

    The start/finish line of the specially designed circuit will be in the shadow of the Turn 4 seating area and main grandstand making an impressive backdrop to the championships first visit to the motor speedway. The course will be an interesting 60/40 combination of tarmac and gravel which is a higher off-road percentage than usual for UK competitors.

    Following an initial inspection of the circuit at the end of last week championship organisers will be undertaking further work over the coming weeks in conjunction with the ACU and AMCA. Input will be sought from senior riders within the championship prior to the track layout being finalised.

    Championship organisers were very excited about the prospect of attending such a high profile venue. Mark Powell from Vivaldi said he hoped Rockingham could become a regular date on the Supermoto calendar.

    "A primary objective of ours is looking at ways in which we could expand the sports appeal. Taking Supermoto to such a high profile circuit is the first step in that process. If the weekend is as successful as we hope then we'd like Rockingham to become a permanent fixture in the British Championship for many years to come."

    Also at Rockingham on the same weekend will be a BRSCC meet which will include Formula Ford, VSR Championship, Super Coupe Cup and Fiat Racing Challenge. Mark Powell said that the double billing would benefit both championships.

    "The BRSCC double-bill gives us the opportunity to piggy-back our marketing and promotional initiatives. We understand that their event attracts a couple of thousand spectators, hopefully we can convert some four-wheel fans over to our unique form of two-wheel racing!"
