Steel Hawk Motorcycle club have announced a brand new event for 2022, the ‘Farmboy Bash’ kicking off on the fifth and sixth of February at the Wheeldon Farm Off Road Centre in Devon.

The ‘Farmboy Bash’ is a brand new event for mini bike racers and will also incorporate two days of ‘Revvi Cup’ electric bike racing for the youngsters to enjoy and get into the sport as Steel Hawk MCC’s Paul Oughton explains. “We had such a positive response to the ‘Revvi Cup’ races at our ‘Airborne Gunner Summer SX’ this year that the guys at Revvi wanted to do more so we started to think of how and when we could do that.”

“We thought taking it inside would be a good idea for obvious reasons like the unpredictability of the British weather and it allow us to kick off our season earlier. Then we thought, ‘how cool would it be to lay on a minibike Supercross?’ so we’ve combined the two and plan to make a really cool event for adults and kids alike under the lights down and in the dry down at Wheeldon Farm.”

Jeff Perrett, who along with Paul and Julie Coyne founded the Steel Hawk Motorcycle Club is confident it’s going to be something to look forward to. “I think it’ll be a fun weekend, which is what we’re all about. When we set out with Steel Hawk our main aim was to lay on different and fun events to the norm. I think over the past few years we’ve achieved that objective and we’re now in a position to add more like the ‘Farmboy Bash’, ‘4 Nations Team MX’ and ‘Hammer & Tongs Team Trophy’ and we’ve got another couple more up our sleeve.”

“Minibike racing on a small, technical indoor Supercross style track will be really entertaining and we can create a good atmosphere. Having been involved as the team manager for the British team at the Pit Bike of Nations at Red Bud a few years back and racing in it myself down the years I know there’s a real good laugh to be had.”

“So why not go for it and add a minibike event to our portfolio of events? We want to try and cater for all different varieties of off road motorcycling, again, that was another reason we came up with our ‘Helter Skelter Hillclimb’. We’ll look to lay on a party on the Saturday night at the ‘Farm Boy Bash’ and just generally try to have a good laugh in the dark, cold winter before looking forward to our summer events.”
