The Michelin MX Nationals team are pleased to announce the venue that will host round four of the 2017 series. This event replaces event to replace the original round one.
Round four will now take place at Sherwood MX near Mansfield on July 8/9th 2017.
After a number of visits to the venue and following discussions with Barry Dring, we are pleased to be able to announce this new venue to our schedule.
With the help of RFX KTM riders Ash Wilde and Nathan Dixon a major revamp is planned that will include an extended lap time and a variety of new challenges for our riders making it a truly national venue. In addition raised spectator viewing areas are to be added to give a greater view of the action.
