New season kicks off with bikes and cars in action this March

Friday, March 01 2013

High speed action on both two and four wheels will get Cadwell Park's 2013 season underway in style this month, with powerful bikes and cars taking to the track. It's the first opportunity for fans starved of motorsport over the winter to get a high-octane fix.

The two-wheeled brigade kick-start the season, with Auto 66 taking residence at the circuit on 23/24 March. The Yorkshire-based club has nurtured the careers of many British Champions, TT winners and World Champions including the legendary Barry Sheene and the Lincolnshire circuit has a reputation that makes it an essential stop on the route to stardom.

Ten classes of motorcycles will contest the weekend's races, from 50cc race bikes to lightweight specials and the bigger-capacity machinery in the club's Formula Libre category, where almost anything goes! There will also be races for the spectacular sidecars, which are sure to be highly entertaining around Cadwell Park's many turns and the non-stop excitement that bike racing provides is the perfect antidote to the winter blues.

Just a few days later the highly modified machinery of the Time Attack Series will bring plenty of tension to the track on Easter Monday (1 April). Competitors race against the clock and the challenge of Cadwell Park's twisting and undulating tarmac, one of the trickiest venues in the championship.

The event is as much about the cars as the drivers, with entrants aiming to build the most powerful engines and tune chassis to produce the fastest possible lap. However the drivers need to be fully focussed on extracting the maximum from their machinery, and the result is a spectacular expression of driving at its most extreme.

Time Attack isn't just about raw horsepower, and the series is also aimed at newcomers to motorsport, many of whom will be making their competition debut this Easter. Indeed, spectators keen to find out more are encouraged to chat to drivers and riders in the paddock at all Cadwell Park's club events.

Tickets to both events can be booked from just £10 in advance, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click the links.
