Sunday the 21st August is just over a week away and it’s a date not to miss out on if you’re into fast-high octane fun. The Petrol & Pistons show is hosting a round of the BSSO Scooter Racing Championships at Croft circuit, Teeside and it’s only £8 for a ticket. Here’s a summary of some of the attractions on offer…
BSSO scooter racing
The one day meeting will see no fewer than 45 geared and auto scooters battling it out on track. Unlike the usual mixed scooter race meeting format, this event will run the geared and autos in separate races – 3 races each. Expect more scooter races and track time than you’re used to at an ‘ordinary’ BSSO meeting.
See the Italian Casa Performance boys battle it out with the Brits in their second visit to Croft this season. As it stands the grids are packed and the championship is heating up nicely, so expect to see some close racing at the quick track during this very special meeting. Replay Racing and SRP Racetech will want to gain a few valuable points at this round.You’ll also get to see the autos, PSN Scooters are fielding a brace of riders this season including the odd Scomadi or two, so be sure to look out for them.
Our two SLUK lads are also out there, Barrie Braithwaite in the LCGB Production Class and Craig Robinson in the Street Class, so give them a cheer for us.
SLUK custom show at Croft
We’ll be there running a custom show and we’ll also be selling some limited edition ScooterLab merchandise. We’ll have our own stand, so just look out for the custom scooters and pop over to see us. If you want to enter the custom show you can apply online using the link at the bottom (a list of classes are also on there) or just ride up on the day.
The organisers of Petrol & Pistons have kindly donated some fantastic trophies and there will also be an exclusive laser cut SLUK souvenir for all custom show winners.
The first 200 scooter riders will get a free patch (pictured above).
Round 5 of the MSA Time Attack Championships will also be held at Petrol & Pistons so expect to see retro, modern and race cars up to 1100bhp battling it out to get the fastest lap.
Tickets just £8
Yes that’s correct, for just £8 in advance (or £10 on the gate) you’ll get a full day of tyre-smoking action both on and off the track.
