Two-stroke evangelist Dave Willet is pulling out all the stops to ensure that the upcoming Apico Two-Stroke Festival – which will be held at the recently revamped Sellindge circuit in Kent over the weekend of August 31/September 1 – will be one to remember.
The latest top rider to sign up for the event is world championship-level off-road all-rounder – and two-stroke fan, obviously – Nathan Watson who tried out the track at a recent Red Bull ride day and knew there and then that he’d be back to compete against the UK’s best two-stroke pilots on race weekend. His WESS buddy Billy Bolt will also be lining up alongside motorcycling legends like MotoGP star Bradley Smith and well-known motocrossers Mark Eastwood, David Campbell and the unstoppable Brian Wheeler.
As well as classes for modern-day 125cc and 250cc/Open smokers, owners of Evo and Super Evo machines are catered for too and then there are the three kids’ classes which are open to Auto, 65 and 85cc competitors.
With the event being held over the last weekend before most schools open up their doors again for the autumn term, the festival is the ideal way to spend a final, family summer-holiday weekend in the idyllic Kent countryside before the mundane Monday-to-Friday grind kicks in once more.
