The 2017 Adrian Flux British FIM Speedway Grand Prix sets Cardiff alight on 22 July!
One of the most exciting events on the world championship calendar has arrived and there is an exciting day of action and entertainment ahead.
The day starts with the fanzone which is back on City Hall lawn and starts at 11am. There is a full day’s entertainment on offer, so make sure you get down there early to soak up the atmosphere and meet other fans.
Racing bike simulators, freestyle mountain bike stunts, live music from Capital FM DJ Matt Lissack, Monster Energy entertainment and official SGP autograph sessions are just some of the activities that make up some of the line up on the day!
The action starts at 11am when the fanzone opens, you can get your photos taken with the World Championship trophies and Monster Girls at 11:30 and the free style mountain bike stunts kick off at 12 noon with a display from the Savage Skills team. Throughout the day there will be food and beverage stalls, merchandise and programmes on sale, vintage speedway bike displays and you can buy your tickets to the event if you have not already got them!
BT Sport presenters Scott Nicholls and Natalie Quirk will be back on the stage at 12:15 to give you an insight into what it takes to host a motorsport event live on TV. Savage Skills will be back for a further display at 12:45 followed by live music from Capital FM DJ Matt Lissack. Cardiff residents will know Matt from the breakfast show on Capital Radio South Wales and he will be there to play some tracks to get the crowd going. If you missed Savage Skills earlier, they will be back at both 13:30 and 15:15. At 13:45 it is your chance to meet the SGP riders! Tai Woffinden will be at the SGP autograph table along with wildcard and British champion Craig Cook and reserve Adam Ellis.
Then it is time to head over to the Monster Energy area for their Rig Riot. Riders Patryk Dudek, Chris Holder, Tai Woffinden and current World Champ Greg Hancock will be offering plenty of autographs, giveaways and Monster Energy drinks. This is one not to miss.
There is however still time to meet some more of the SGP riders, with a second autograph session at 15:00 at the SGP autograph table. Current world championship leader Jason Doyle will be signing alongside Emil Sayfutdinov and reserve Josh Bates. The fanzone will draw to a close at 16:00 as the gates to the stadium open at 15:30 and it will be time to head over for the fire themed opening ceremony! Engines start 17:00.
