10th of September is a day for your diaries! The races kick off with gymkhana then horse trotting, there’s a fun run and a cross country race then the motorbike racing begins!
There are some pro classes for folks who are riding motocross all the time but it’s the locals races that make longnor special. This is the day that all the locals dig their motorcross bike out of the shed for - you’ll see all sorts of folk riding all sorts of bikes. There’s even a few motocross sidecar outfits. There’s lots of classes to enter, thousands of spectators and a good bar.
After an afternoon of motorbike racing theres usually a mass migration up to the village pubs.
Longnor Races is held at Waterhouse Farm (SK17 0LA) off the B5053 South of Longnor Village.
