Nine races on the opening day includes a three-hour endurance race featuring pit stops, rider changes and intriguing battles amongst 30 teams, including one from Fastbikes magazine. Visitors on Sunday can expect to see a further 13 contests across various classes.

No Limits has established a reputation for introducing new riders to motorsport and a new crop of rookies is expected to hit the track this weekend, especially in the Metzelers Newcomers categories, with huge grids forecast by the organisers.

Amongst these will be the Pirelli Super Series, with a ride in the MCE British Superbike Championship-supporting National Superstock Championship up for grabs.

Meanwhile riders Keenan Armstrong and brothers Matthew and Kurt Wigley are all preparing for full seasons on the MCE BSB support package.
