Round eleven takes the MXGP paddock to the leafy rolling hills of Hampshire, UK, and to the Matterley Basin track.
The on-track action is likely to be anything but serene however, with Team HRC at full strength with Evgeny Bobryshev fresh from his French podium, and Gautier Paulin returning and sure to be showing the pace again that saw him leading the qualifying race on home soil last time out.
The 1640m hard pack track is nestled into the area’s hillside, so viewing is fantastic for the fans – you can see the entire track from every point of the venue.
Just under 100km South-west of London, outside the typically English city of Winchester and on the edge of the South Downs, Matterley Basin owes a lot of its beauty to the fact it sits within the National Park.
First used in 2006 when it also played host to the Nations, the venue returned as a regular fixture in 2011. Last year Paulin was third in qualifying, and Bobryshev just missed the podium with a pair of fourth place finishes on Sunday to put him fourth overall.
