Hawkstone Park Motocross
This exciting internationally recognised venue for motocross is situated in one of the most picturesque areas of the country.
The steep Hawkstone hill with its exposed rock face near the summit, which rises from the lower section of the track as the riders cross the line each lap, has been the backdrop to many classic moto-x images and is instantly recognised the world over.
The venue actually started life as a pre-war hill-climb back in 1938, run by the quaintly-named Crewe and Nantwich Light Car Club! The winner was the driver who made it furthest up the awesome hill which remains the single most breathtaking feature of the track to this day.
In 1946 motorcycle scrambling hit Hawkstone Park courtesy of the Salop Motor Club. In those days heats weren’t necessary. Riders competed under the same rules as the hill-climbers in their cars. Those who made it furthest up the precipitous incline qualified to race!
Today it’s all much more organised.
