Fast and furious family fun, The Adrian Flux British FIM Speedway Grand Prix is set to return to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday July 21st, celebrating its 18th year in the Welsh capital. I’ll be attending with my son and I cannot wait!
The day starts in the activity-packed fanzone which will open on City Hall lawn at 11am featuring a jam-packed schedule of family-friendly fun including live music and stunt performances; parkour/ free running demonstrations; face painting and rider autograph sessions.
The biggest event on the Speedway calendar, the GP was first held at the former Millennium Stadium in 2001 in front of over 30,000 fans. Now the longest-standing third party event in the stadium’s calendar, crowds regularly top 40,000 with visitors drawn to the capital to watch 16 riders – 15 permanent and 1 wild card – compete over 23 heats; four riders over four laps on 500cc bikes with no brakes!
Multiple World Champions will be going up against each other this year, including Great Britain’s double series winner, Tai Woffinden.
Engines start at 5pm and the event will end with a spectacular firework display in the stadium itself.
