Bennetts BSB headlines mega 2018 events calendar at Cadwell Park

Friday, February 23 2018

Cadwell Park circuit has announced its 2018 calendar, headlined by the Bennetts British Superbike Championship 'Party in the Park', plus historic bike and car events and a busy line-up of high-octane entertainment almost every weekend from March until November. Tickets for most events are now on sale from £12, with free admission to under-13s.

Past and present celebrated on two wheels and four

Britain's biggest national racing championship is the standout event this season, with the new-look Bennetts British Superbike Championship arriving on 17-19 August. Reigning champion Shane 'Shakey' Byrne will be aiming for his seventh title, and third in a row, but will face tough opposition from rivals Leon Haslam and 'Master of the Mountain' Josh Brookes. The three-day 'Party in the Park' is the championship's most popular event, and local fans will be cheering on the Hondas, prepared in nearby Louth, as well as the town's own BSB hero, Peter Hickman.

Two historic events top the list of car fixtures. The Historic Sports Car Club Wolds Trophy will be back on 19-20 May with a plethora of classic single-seaters, sports cars and the ever-popular touring cars in one of the best settings to watch historic racing. The Vintage Motorsport Festival is a firm favourite with Cadwell Park fans, and this glorious event featuring some of the world's most priceless machines from motoring's pioneering age takes place on Saturday 22 July.

Fans of more modern performance cars will love Modified Live on Bank Holiday Monday 7 May. It's headlined by the spectacular Time Attack Championship for highly-modified cars on the circuit, plus public track time and demonstrations as well as displays and entertainment off the track. Two-wheeled followers will get their own equivalent with Moto Time Attack on 14-15 July, a fastest-lap competition for the UK's quickest and wildest bikes.

Huge variety of bikes and cars to take on the Cadwell challenge

A wide-ranging selection of bike and car club racing championships and series will visit Cadwell Park this season, and for most weekends of the season the track will be filled with racing machinery.

The season is bookended by two stage rally events. The Alan Healy Memorial Rally on Sun 8 April will provide an exciting finale to the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship season, with the title set to be decided. The North Humberside Rally and Fireworks on Sunday 19 November will be a round of the following season's championship, and ends the year in style with a spectacular fireworks display.

The Autumn will also include two historic motorcycle events, starting with the Vintage Motor Cycle Club Championships on 29-30 August, where bikes and sidecars dating to before Cadwell Park's existence will be in action. A slightly newer era will be recalled at the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club Championship on 6-7 October, and the sight of these elderly machines leaping over the Mountain will certainly be something to behold.

In addition to these highlights, there's much more club racing action throughout the season, and each event offers great value for money with admission from just £12, and under-13s go free to all of the year's fixtures.
