Hawkstone Park remains one of the most famous moto-x circuits in the World, and certainly the most well known in the UK.

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 deep sand that is present throughout the circuit becomes rougher as the meeting progresses, creating a new test for rider and machine as they take to the start gate for each and every moto. The more tired the riders become the greater the challenge becomes.

The whoop section out in woods is still a favourite amongst spectators, with only the brave daring to tackle this technical part of the lap on full throttle. The consequences of mistiming such an attack normally results in a spectacular crash, which leaves a lasting memory both with the rider and the assembled audience.

The flowing and undulating circuit has many good vantage points for the public, but in terms of crowd there is never any deeper gathering than at the great sand pit section just before the bridge that separates the riders from the welcome sight of the finish line, bar a few new corners.

Since Jobe lept above Malherbe in the 1984 - 500 GP, captured in the most iconic moto-x image of all time taken by Nick Haskell, people have flocked to this point to witness similar feats of bravery.
 
Over the twenty or so years since, judging by the returning crowds, they have never been disappointed by the action that this truly great circuit continues to serve them.

We hope you too enjoy your day at this awe inspiring venue!
