Moto1 is to be held this weekend (October 30th and 31st) at Donington Park.

It has been announced that leading motorcycle manufacturers have stepped up their support, supplying more than 100 machines.

Top-level machinery will be on display from Honda, Husaberg, Gas Gas, KTM, Montesa, Scorpa, Sherco, Suzuki, TM and Yamaha. The bikes will be used by the 24 hopefuls aiming to become the UK's best all-round motorcyclist.

Having proved his superiority in road-race, motocross, trials and supermoto, the overall winner will collect £6,000 in prize money.

Robbie Alan, Moto1's Managing Director, said: "The manufacturer support is outstanding. For the first year of Moto1, the response has been tremendous."

In addition to the racing, there will be stunt riding displays, a World Long-Jump record attempt and a classic parade.

The Moto1 action will be screened on Sky Sports, on November 17th 2004, at 5pm.
