Everything that’s on at the Speedway fanzone in Cardiff 2022

Speedway Grand Prix fanzone in Cardiff

The FIM British Speedway Grand Prix takes over Cardiff on Saturday 13th August, – and the action starts long before the engines fire up.

The highly popular fanzone returns to Cardiff’s City Hall Lawn from 10:00 on Saturday (race day) with a fun-packed programme of entertainment for all the family ahead of the evening’s racing.

The Monster Energy rig will be open to fans all day, as well as hosting a special event with British Speedway Grand Prix rider Tai Woffiden. There will also be sessions with riders Patryk Dudek and Greg Hancock in the afternoon.

Tai Woffinden

Grab an autograph or a speedway selfie with your favourite riders at our autograph session, featuring all of the Speedway GP riders from 2.15pm.

Monster Energy brings the noise at 1.30pm, when triple world champion Tai Woffinden winds on the throttle for a burnout.

Fans can then grab some freebies and meet Monster Energy athletes Woffinden, Freddie Lindgren, Patryk Dudek, Jack Holder and Dan Bewley at the Monster Energy Rig Riot from 1.45pm. There will also be plenty of entertainment in the Monster Energy zone throughout the day, including drink sampling, music and a photo booth.

Speedway GP legends will appear on the main stage from 12.15pm and again at 1pm as we celebrate the stars of the shale, who have topped the Principality Stadium podium since 2001.

The two-wheeled action gets started early with some freestyle mountain bike stunt performances at 11.30am, 12pm, 12.45pm and 2.45pm.

Throughout the day, fans can have their photo taken with the FIM Speedway World Championships trophies and pose on a speedway machine. And don’t forget to grab a photo with the brand-new ‘We Love Speedway’ sign!

There will be plenty of fun for kids all day, including face painting and glitter tattoos, plus a display of vintage bikes and food and drink available for purchase.

The fanzone closes at 3.30pm when the doors to the Principality Stadium open, with fans advised to arrive in good time to clear ticket and security checks.

Racing will start in the stadium at 5pm and culminate with a spectacular indoor firework display.

For the first time, action will also continue on Sunday as the Principality Stadium hosts the FIM SGP2 of Great Britain – the second round of the revamped FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship, with entry included in the FIM British Speedway GP ticket price.
