CELEBRATE CARDIFF'S 20TH SPEEDWAY GP IN SATURDAY'S FANZONE
Celebrate 20 years of the FIM Speedway GP of Great Britain – Cardiff and be part of an action-packed fanzone on City Hall Lawn this Saturday from 10am.

Make a day of it in the Welsh capital as speedway fans from all over the world get ready for Britain’s biggest arena motorsport event, with plenty of star guests, surprises and a day of entertainment for the whole family.

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.

And take home the perfect souvenir of Cardiff’s 20th FIM British Speedway GP – visit the Speedway GP merchandise shop.

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.

Tickets for the FIM British Speedway GP are no longer available online, but can be purchased from the WRU Shop at the Principality Stadium, between gates three and four on Westgate Street on Friday (13:00-17:30 BST) and Saturday (09:30-17:30 BST).
