The Range & Wilko back VMXDN Foxhill and Farleigh Castle Vets MX

The Promoters for both the VMXdN Foxhill and Farleigh Castle Vets MX are proud to announce they have secured sponsorship from high profile retail giant ‘The Range’ for the 2024 events and moving forward.

Chris Dawson, founder and chairman, the mogul behind these brands is an ex-rider and lifelong hardcore motocross fan – he hasn’t missed one VMXdN meeting and has been so impressed with the standard of the Vets events he immediately wanted to get involved to help elevate the promotion and professionalism.

The Range is a huge retailer, selling great brands in all areas of the home, garden & leisure sector including everyday consumables such as food, cleaning, and laundry products; most stores also have a huge Iceland food store within.

Late last year The Range acquired the brand of the much loved, value retailer Wilko and are rapidly opening Wilko stores as well as having launched their on-line platform which sells a huge amounts of original and popular Wilko products across gardening, pets, DIY, paint, and much more.

It is clear that thousands of the everyday motocross community will be familiar with and shop with these brands, so the promoters of VMXdN are delighted at what a great fit their new sponsor is to the sport; especially considering Chris Dawson’s lifelong affiliation with the sport.

The Range will support the events across the board and will be a huge boost in helping promote VMXdN Foxhill – especially with their massive social media presence. They will also be having event promotions in store with a specific range of MX related items.

During the build-up to the events, The Range will provide a VMXdN Foxhill & Farleigh Castle Vets MX ‘event specific’ click and collect offer, where people can order on-line and then collect from the ‘on-site’ Range collection truck at both the Foxhill & Farleigh Castle circuits. There will also be goods available to buy on the day, such as camping chairs, tables, air beds, pop up tents, BBQs, picnic products and much more.

Spokesman from The Range said, “We are really excited about the ‘Show’N’Shine’ this year” which is to be held on Friday the 23rd August at VMXdN Foxhill, “the prizes will be donated by The Range and will be rather special to say the least!”

Promoters Dave King and Rob “DocWob” Walters travelled to the Range Global headquarters down in Plymouth back in March to seal the deal with Chris Dawson and his corporate chiefs. Reporting that “It was quite an eye opener! The HQ was huge, the nerve centre that controls everything from its vast store network to its multi-brand online platforms that sell to 27 Countries across Europe as well as the UK.”

“The Range, and Wilko are huge High Street stores accessed daily across the country by hundreds of thousands and it’s a huge honour to have the support of such huge brands for a UK motocross event” Dave King expressed. Rob ‘DocWob’ Walters continued, “Their HQ is impressive, and the sheer scale of the business eye watering. It’s incredible to have the support of such a household name brand for both VMXdN Foxhill and Farleigh Castle Vets MX 2024 and beyond! With their help the future is looking very bright indeed. To say we are excited is an understatement!”

The UK Vet’s two stroke motocross scene is hugely supported and adored in the UK, with both VMXdN Foxhill held over the four-day August bank holiday weekend of August 22nd-26th quickly establishing itself as the “must go to” event on the yearly calendar, so much so that the 2024 event is on target to be sold out – such is the demand for tickets.
For 2024 we have added the OG vets’ race, the Farleigh Castle Vets MX (September 13th – 15th) to our portfolio which we plan to bring back to its glory days.

This means that riders and fans have two fantastic family friendly events to enjoy in 2024. If you have a passion for the golden era of 80s/90s/00s racing, two strokes and MX in general – and not forgetting the off-track entertainment – grab your tickets now.
