The FIM World Supercross British Grand Prix will make its triumphant return to the United Kingdom as the opening round, this time under the lights of Villa Park, which would be transformed into the supercross battlefield for the first time in its long and illustrious history as an iconic sport and entertainment venue.


The race day presents an intensive format with three back-to-back races to define the Grand Prix winner in each class. But before that, riders will hit the track for Free practices, qualifying sessions and heats, including a Superpole shootout among the top 3 from each WSX class heat.

Free Practice: Practice sessions for both the SX2 and WSX sessions generally occur previous to gate openings. There also will be a pair of sessions the day before.
