With this being a summer series, one day of racing will take place on the specially adapted Outdoor circuit, and the other day will be on the Indoor track, which served up such great racing during the Indoor series.
In the Adults, British Indoor EX champ and FIM E-Xplorer racer Sam Winterburn from the PCR E Performance Factory Sur-Ron team will be looking to add the EXGP title to his collection but he will have competition from the 2022/2023 EX Lites Stock Mod indoor title winner Isaac Ash who has moved up to the Open class with the Rev Monkey Sur-Ron team. Ben Clayton is also set to be in the line up as will Fast and Female racer Beanie Reece, and PCR E Performance racer Chloe Richardson.
The racing in the Auto E-5 class in the Indoor series was out of the top drawer with the title going down to the wire with two of the protagonists, Teddy Moore and Jesse Barks set to do battle again. In the Indoor Terry would be crowned the champ but it was Barks who won at Wheeldon last time out so this is set to be a great one.
Over in the Mini-E class another Indoor Champ will be looking to claim another title and thats Ethan Kentch. Ethan will have to be at his best with a great line up of riders entered including George Hutchings who showed good speed at the Devon venue and Keyan Parry who was third in the Indoor series and a host of other riders looking to mount a title challenge.
The Oset 12.5 class has gone from strength to strength and there are a whole host of little superstars in this class. Two riders who will be keen to put their best foot down this weekend will be Oliver Fostun and Louis Good both of whom won rounds of the Indoor Championship.
The Revvi South West Showdown Electric Balance Bike cup will be fantastic to watch with a superb entry of little racers keen to strut their stuff on both of the circuits. One to watch out for will be Austin Roberts who has won all four Revvi events this year in the Revvi Open 16″ 5-6 year old category. Can Austin make it five from five this weekend??
