A world-class off-track entertainment package has been confirmed for Silverstone's round of the 2010 MotoGP World Championship in June, with the Red Bull Pro Nationals motocross championships, Red Bull X-Fighters Jams and trials legend Dougie Lampkin all set to leap into action to keep fans on the edge of their seats throughout the mid-summer weekend.
The AirAsia British Grand Prix – due to take place from 18-20 June – will play host to the fourth round of the 2010 Red Bull Pro Nationals, what is widely-billed as one of the most dynamic motocross series' in Europe. Four races, along with practice and qualifying sessions on a specially-designed track will provide plenty of off-road action when Valentino Rossi and co. aren't tackling Silverstone's new 3.666-mile Grand Prix Circuit.
What's more, the Red Bull X-Fighters will be performing six spectacular 'X-Jam' freestyle motocross shows during the weekend. The London show of the X-Fighters 2009 World Tour sold out in just two hours, and with a number of the world's leading FMX riders set to feature at Silverstone, their high-flying acrobatic displays are guaranteed to be just as popular.
The crowd will also be wowed by stunt shows from the legendary Dougie Lampkin MBE. The twelve-time Trials World Champion is renowned for his spell-binding skills and tricks on two wheels, and the fans' favourite will be making a number of appearances, performing various routines in different locations around the venue. A Red Bull mobile DJ will also keep fans entertained throughout the weekend.
Access to the motocross races, Red Bull X-Fighters Jams shows and Dougie Lampkin displays is free to anyone purchasing a ticket for the 2010 AirAsia British Grand Prix. Advance tickets start from just £15.
“We promised MotoGP fans a better experience at Silverstone, and that is exactly what we are delivering,” revealed the celebrated Home of British Motor Racing's managing director Richard Phillips. “On top of a multi-million pound investment into an exciting new circuit and improved viewing facilities, Silverstone and Red Bull are providing a world-class line-up of entertainment to run alongside the spectacular MotoGP action. Silverstone's round of MotoGP will be a phenomenal event, at affordable prices.”
