What you can expect at the Speedway fanzone in Cardiff 2023

Fans can enjoy a packed programme of entertainment ahead of the FIM Speedway GP of Great Britain – Cardiff on September 2 as the full line-up for this year’s fanzone on City Hall Lawn is revealed (open 10am-3pm).

Britain’s triple world champion Tai Woffinden cranks up the volume at 1.30pm with his trademark Cardiff burnout.

He then joins his fellow Monster Energy Speedway GP athletes Fredrik Lindgren, Dan Bewley, Patryk Dudek and Jack Holder for the always-popular Monster Energy Rig Riot at 1.45pm – the perfect opportunity for fans to some grab Monster Energy Speedway GP goodies.

All 18 riders competing in the FIM British Speedway GP will be taking part in the Cardiff signing session from 2.15pm. With large crowds expected, get there early to avoid disappointment, and don’t miss your chance to meet your Speedway GP favourites and grab an autograph or selfie.

We will have a special Q&A with VIP guests and former speedway stars on the main stage at 12.15pm.

BMX flatland star Adam Kun will be performing live in the Monster Energy Zone at 10.30am, 11.30am and 2.45pm, with the Battle Bikes stunt show also wowing fans at 11am, 12pm and 1pm.

 Speedway GP’s resident DJ Karl West will be performing from 2.15pm to get fans pumped up for a huge night of World Championship action.

Join us at the big screen for your chance to win exclusive Speedway GP prizes and experiences in our Cardiff quizzes at 11.45am and 1.15pm. And keep an eye on the big screen for a special display marking 100 years of the sport.

Throughout the day, there will be plenty of photo opportunities. Don’t miss your chance to meet the brand-new Speedway GP mascot Speedy, who will be posing for photos with fans at 11.30am, 1.15pm and 2.15pm. Fans can also grab a picture with the Speedway GP World Championship trophy or the We Love Speedway sign.

There will be face painting for kids – and big kids – who want to show their national colours, as well as a vintage bikes exhibition.

FIM British Speedway GP nominated charity Blood Bikes Wales join in the fanzone as they raise cash to support their vital work, assisting the NHS with crucial deliveries, including vital blood supplies and samples, plasma, donor milk for specialist baby units and essential medication between Wales’ various hospitals.

Fans can pick up a Cardiff memento in the Speedway GP merchandise shop and food, drink and programmes will be available for purchase.

The Cardiff fanzone closes at 3pm as the action switches to the iconic Principality Stadium.

Make sure you arrive early to ensure a smooth entry as we build up to racing with an unmissable Speedway GP laser show, celebrating 100 years of racing.

DJ Karl West will also take to the stage to get Principality Stadium bouncing. The Cardiff Arms Park Male Choir will then sing the Welsh and British national anthems, before 23 heats of epic Speedway GP action get underway.

During the first track maintenance break, fans should keep an eye out for an exclusive opportunity to win a money-can’t-buy prize – your chance to present a trophy to the third-placed rider in the FIM British Speedway GP on the main stage.

And the evening will come to a spectacular close with the famous Cardiff indoor fireworks display after the champagne has been sprayed.

Tickets can still be purchased at fimspeedwaygpofcardiff.seetickets.com and also on the day.
