With much to see in terms of the latest motocross, enduro and trials machines and a healthy showing of top-level personalities, the Stoneleigh Park halls were buzzing. Retailers happily reported a steady stream of business throughout the day and the My First Honda Licence and Strider Balance Bikes activities in hall four were mobbed.
British MX1 and MX2 champions Kevin Strijbos and Elliott Banks-Browne together with Extreme Enduro star Jonny Walker and British Enduro champ David Knight took time out to talk with stage compere Jack Burnicle, meet fans and sign autographs, and more stars of the racing world are expected to make a visit to Stoneleigh over the next three days. Suzuki's Stephen Sword is confirmed for Friday and Kawasaki's Tommy Searle and Honda's Nico Aubin are both expected on Saturday.
