The 2011 British Supercross Championship kicks off at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on October 22nd, Future West have been hard at work nailing down a stellar lineup of British Supercross stars to compete in the series. Sheffield will see the return of Supercross after a three year absence from the South Yorkshire venue. The action inside Motorpoint Arena will reach boiling point as riders eagerly anticipate the first drop of the gate. The five round championship will visit Belfast’s Odyssey Arena for round 2 on November 19th, Glasgow’s Braehead Arena for round 3 on November 26th, London’s Wembley Arena for round 4 on January 14th and Birmingham’s LG Arena for the final round on February 18th.
There is little wonder that this year’s series is attracting the best line up of top British pro teams and riders in the 15 year history of the series. Huge purse and huge exposure are just a few of the reasons the boys are amped to kick off the much anticipated winter series.
Already confirmed for this year’s championship are defending British Supercross Lights champ, Kawasaki mounted Jack Brunell and defending British Supercross champ, Red Bull KTM UK’s Tom Church. Both riders are chomping at the bit for another year of fierce indoor competition all in the warm dry comfort of the UK’s premiere indoor venues. Also confirmed is Scottish Superstar Stephen Sword and Dave Thorpe’s new Buildbase Honda team rider Nicolas Aubin of France along with many more top flight British motocross stars.
