FIM WORLD SUPERCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP ROARS INTO CARDIFF
26th September 2022, 10:09 am By Principality Stadium
In two weeks, Cardiff will host the first ever, Round 1 of the World Supercross British Grand Prix, with the sport’s biggest stars set to light up Principality Stadium on Saturday 8 October.
The sport of supercross is intense dirt bike racing in a stadium environment and combines the adrenaline-fueled action and jaw-dropping jumps with live music, freestyle motocross stunts, and awe-inspiring pyrotechnics, making it a perfect family night out.
While there are popular domestic championships across Europe and standalone events in cities such as Paris, France, and Herning, Denmark, the World Supercross Championship has historically taken place in the United States.
However, in 2022 a new era of World Supercross Championship finally goes global and will pit the best riders on the planet against each other in stadiums across the globe, including the likes of championship favourite and international superstar Ken Roczen, Cole Seely, Justin Brayton and 40 of the world’s best athletes. And with the UK the birthplace of motocross racing, having the first round of the championship take place in Britain is a fitting appreciation of the sport’s history.
Current US champion and former World Supercross Champion, Eli Tomac, will also make a wildcard appearance at the event, adding to the star-studded lineup. His inclusion, alongside archrival Ken Roczen, will give fans the chance to watch the pair reignite their rivalry and do battle head-to-head.
On Saturday 8 October Principality Stadium will be transformed into the ultimate dirt bike battlefield for one epic night of unmissable action and intense competition racing, with 10 teams and 40 of the best riders from across the globe doing battle.
“Our mission for the World Supercross Championship is to elevate supercross to a truly global audience and give international fans the opportunity to experience this incredible sport at a world championship level, firsthand. We are so excited that October 8, inside Principality Stadium, will mark this momentous occasion for supercross, and fans will get to see the likes of Roczen, Tomac, and others go head-to-head in the UK!” said Adam Bailey, managing director – Motorsport for SX Global.
“We’re thrilled that Principality Stadium has been chosen to host round one of the FIM World Supercross Championship. Hosting the first round of the WSX, we look forward to delivering an outstanding experience for all supercross fans travelling to Cardiff and adding this to our successful 20-year history with motorsport,” said Mark Williams, Principality Stadium Manager.
