The Dirt Bike Show moves back to its traditional mid-November slot at Stoneleigh Park this year and for the first time in its nine-year history will run before the NEC Motorcycle Show.

David Watson of Promoto, the organisers of the Show since it first ran at Stoneleigh Park in 2000, believes that running ahead of the International Motorcycle Show at the NEC will be positive for the off-road scene.

"Manufacturers frequently premiere new models at the Dirt Bike Show, like KTM with itsradical new quad last year." He continues. "We expect to see more new machine launches at Stoneleigh Park thanks to the later dates for the NEC event and that will create a buzz at our Show that's good for exhibitors, visitors and the off-road world in general."

Record numbers of visitors and exhibitors attended the 2007 Dirt Bike Show and major celebrities, such as Stefan Everts and Billy Mackenzie, frequently mingled with the crowds during the four day event.

The 2008 Dirt Bike Show will run at Stoneleigh Park from Thursday 13th - Sunday 16th November.
