MOUNTAIN VIEW MOTOCROSS TRACK & 'THE DESERT' PRACTICE TRACK

Mountainview Motocross Track has now opened for practice days for the past three years and so far the feed back has been very good. It's only half a mile from our main track and is a sand based track suitable for riding in all weather.

We have also set up a practice track at 'The Desert' which is out in the back section of the track. It is used on set days as we alternate between tracks.

Both tracks run under controlled timed session and groups are grade according to ability ie grade A riders will not ride out with Grade C, youth will ride separate from adults and quads will not be out with solos etc., this way we keep safe practice and everyone gets loads of safe practice time. Flag marshals and first aid trained staff are always there.

The 'Back Practice ' track will only be open for week day practice providing riders are booked in and is open for all bikes quads , sidecars , solos contact 07927 990313 before 9.00pm the previous night .

Mountainview will be open most Saturdays (weather permitting) follow us on Facebook to see what is happening each week or text 07731438170 or email marlene.sykes631@btinternet.com for updates.
