Brown Memorial Motocross incorporating the Huck Cup takes place.

Mike Brown was the brother of Alan, and the Uncle of Alans son Tom who both run the Motoxtreme MX Shop and Kawasaki dealership in Marshfield village itself and who run the event.

Tom tells us more “My uncle Mike was a influential figure in the local motocross scene and was big on the AMCA scene in the 80’s, and it was him who actually got the Marshfield track in the first place.  Mike was sadly killed in a work accident in 1988 and my Dad has been running the Mike Brown Memorial Trophy since 1989.  Right from the start it was well attended with big names from the area like Mike Church and Chris Bryan, and the big names have kept coming. In 2006 three times World Champion won the meeting and in 2007 it was Neil Hudson”.

Sadly another big member of the Marshfield motocross community Mark Hucklebridge lost his fight against Cancer last year, and in 2017 the Huck Cup was incorporated into the Event.

Tom continued “Hucks was a big friend of my mine from an early age, and he was to most people on the Motocross circuit.  He was an inspiration to us all to the very end, and it’s fitting that some of the sports biggest names are turning out to ride in his honour, with many others sending Social Media messages of support.  The line up this year is amazing and I can’t wait to seem them all out on track.”

In fact the Huck Cup is a who’s who of British Motocross racing with World MX star Conrad Mewse lining up along side Kristian Whatley, Jake Nicholls, Elliot Banks Browne and Ryan Houghton, on top of some big names from not too far past like New Zealander Josh Coppins, former British Champion Stephen Sword, Tom Church and reigning champion Luke Hawkins.

Last years winner Simon Bracey will be back to defend his Mike Brown Memorial trophy title and he will have to battle out with a full line up of local Motocross racers all out to get their hands on the coveted silverware.

Practice will start at 9.30am with racing looking to start at about 12noon.  Entry is just £5 so an absolute bargain, with refreshments and Trade stands on hand.  The postcode for the venue is SN14 8LJ.  With 2 X 20minutes moto’s per class the aim is to be finished so that people still have time to travel back and enjoy the rest of their Good Friday.
