The first two rounds of the Arenacross Tour proved to be a box-office-busting sell-out showdown at The SSE Arena, Belfast last weekend with capacity crowds on both Friday and Saturday evening.

The gathered audience was treated to world-class racing from the aggressively competitive Pro 450 and Pro Lites, with French racers Greg Aranda (Team Green Kawasaki) and Cedric Soubeyras (FRO Systems) giving a master class of Arenacross racing. The youth classes, including the Team Green Supermini Cup and, exclusive-to-Belfast All-Ireland Cup, also provided non-stop entertainment with some early championship contenders emerging across the groups.

The Fix Auto FMX crew were as skilful and flamboyant as ever in their endeavour to win the adoration of the excitable fans, with Arran Powley, recovering seemingly unscathed from a backflip landing crash winning the biggest cheer of the night. These guys are clearly made of the hard stuff as he was back out in the next set with his FMX AX family of Dan Whitby, Samson Eaton, Nez Parker and Petr Pilat.

By selling out at Belfast on two consecutive nights, Arenacross not only delivered on its promise of providing all-round family fun and razzmatazz but also engaged in a spot of trend-bucking by actively taking motorcycling to totally new audiences, providing a positive boost for the motorcycling community in the process.

The Arenacross Tour now heads to The Resorts World Arena at the NEC over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of February, prior to travelling up to Sheffield for the final rounds on the 16th and 17th of February.

Friday night tickets offer a whopping 25 per cent discount over the Saturday and are available by calling the hotline on 0844 581 6952 or from the Arenacross website
