A King’s Lynn car dealer is again the main backer of one of the region’s most prestigious motocross events.
Stebbings Car Superstore, East Anglia’s number one car supermarket, have renewed their partnership with the Lyng round of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship.
The third round of the UK’s headline domestic motocross series is in Norfolk on Sunday and attracts all the leading British-based factory-supported teams and riders.
Stebbings director Anthony Skerry has increased his company’s interest in the star-studded Cadders Hill event over consecutive years, and became a full round sponsor last year.
After renewing the agreement with Andrew Hay from the Norwich Viking Motorcycle Club he said: “Our increased involvement last year was hugely successful for both ourselves and the Norwich Vikings and I look forward to another first class event.”
The Norwich Vikings have been organising motorcycle events at the Cadders Hill venue since 1936, and running British Championship events for more than 25 years.
Lyng clerk of the course Andrew Hay said: “Stebbings commitment to Lyng has allowed us to continue moving our events and venue forward.
This not only allows us to host major championship meetings, but also provides enhanced facilities for the grass roots.”
KTM World Championship contender, Jake Nicholls will make a welcome return to the championship.
The Ipswich rider, who lives in Belgium during the season, will ride in the MX2 class and is bound to be a challenger for the top step of the podium.
Hay said the conditions at the course were perfect, after the cancellation of the previous round at Kent’s Canada Heights.
The Cadders Hill circuit is easily reached from the A47, the postcode is NR9 5QZ. Timed qualification starts at 9am and the first of eight championship races starts at 12.15pm.
