Paul Edmondson has now confirmed the final round of the ACU British Extreme Enduro Championship
Adstone Set To Host Eddy’s Xtreme Final
Paul Edmondson has now confirmed that the final round of the ACU British Extreme Enduro Championship, the Eddy’s Xtreme Enduro series, will be running on Saturday June 23rd at Manor Farm Adstone in Northamptonshire.
The venue is home to Enduroland and has hosted big events in previous years but the Xtreme Final looks set to be the biggest and best yet. Enduroland’s Boss Hog, Nigel Wheatley, has jumped at the opportunity to host the event and both he and Fast Eddy have plans underway to make the event memorable.
The first two rounds of Eddy’s Xtreme Enduro series have tested riders over two one-hour races, then one two-hour race and the final round will be a series of shorter Enduro-X races over a newly built course.
The format for the event will see each class ride for 15 minutes of timed qualifying, purely for start positions, followed by four individual class races with the top five riders from each class, excluding Youth racer, contesting a Grande Finale in the evening, followed by plenty of partying and entertainment.
Adstone already has a small Enduro-X course which will be replaced, totally redesigned and rebuilt by something much larger and much more spectacular that will be Europe’s largest outdoor Enduro-X arena when completed.
A recent meeting at Adstone between Paul Edmondson and Nigel Wheatley was very productive and plans for the Extreme Arena have already been drawn up with work starting in the next couple of weeks.
The course will be built in a style which will encourage racing for pure spectator entertainment and after looking at recent extreme events such as Red Bull Romaniacs and Red Bull’s New Zealand venue both Fast Eddy and Enduroland will be bringing sections such as wall rides, containers and other European style obstacles, not usually seen in the UK, to this event.
With KORR’s Jonny Walker leading the Championship it will be his to lose, however, with KTM’s David Knight and Husaberg’s Graham Jarvis still in contention amongst a host of other top stars who excel at this type of racing, the final round promises to be the ultimate showdown on the ultimate course at a really superb venue.
Adstone has the capacity and facilities to accommodate an event of this scale but more importantly for the riders, it also has some seriously technical sections outside the arena, which will be used throughout the day before the final showdown in the Arena on Saturday evening.
Eddy’s Xtreme Enduro has maintained the five-class format; Pro, Expert, Clubman, Veterans and Youth 13-16 limited to just twenty riders per class. Demand for entries is expected to be heavy with so many riders in contention for a British Championship title across all classes.
Boss Hog will attend to all matters outside of racing. There will be plenty of entertainment throughout the weekend with a firework display, the famous Dog Inn, a live band, mini bike and quad hire and plenty to entertain kids and parents in addition to the stars of Enduro racing for a British Champions title in the most spectacular fashion.
As if the Extreme Final was not enough to sate rider’s appetites there is also a round of the Rock Oil XC Championship scheduled for the following day where riders can experience the course used by the Pros.
Make a date in your diary, Adstone June 23rd and 24th. Definitely one not to miss.
