Welcome to the Canada Heights Round of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship Fuelled by Gulf Race Fuels
The intertwined tracks of Canada Heights last saw the take on of the British Championship in 2021. The track allows the rider to show off their endurance skills throughout the long straights and sharp turns tend to take the riders out on a tricky slope. Leaving no end of space for riders to compete with each other it's hard to get a lead on this circuit as the track leaves no room for error.
The course at Swanley, Kent known as Canada Heights, acquired its name during the 1914-18 War when a large contingent of Canadian troops were camped there on the high ground. It has, however been in regular use for off-road motorcycle sports for many years, and by the Sidcup and District Motorcycle Club since 1952. Over the years, the circuit has hosted many events, from Club level to International status. It drew large crowds and national television coverage with the BBC “Grandstand Trophy” events during the 1960s. Despite its popularity and regular use by riders and spectators alike, it still remained just a rough piece of land for motorcycling until 1985, when the Sidcup Club bought it with the aid of a grant from the Sports Council and sponsorship from companies and individuals.
The Revo ACU British Motocross Championship Fuelled by Gulf Race Fuels is the perfect day out for anyone who is interested in motorsport but also those who are looking for a family day out. During your time at the event you will see riders battle it out to the chequered flag in each race as the Championship begins its 2022 season tour before the ACU British Motocross Champions are crowned at the final round on September 10th and 11th.
