Here's your guide to what's on in the Adrian Flux British SGP fanzone on City Hall Lawn from 11am this Saturday.

19 / 07 / 2018, 12:00

The Adrian Flux British FIM Speedway Grand Prix is roars into Cardiff this Saturday with an action-packed fanzone on City Hall Lawn. 

One of the most exciting events on the World Championship calendar has arrived and there is an exciting day of entertainment ahead.

The day starts on City Hall Lawn at 11:00. There is a full day’s entertainment on offer, so make sure you get down there early to soak up the atmosphere and meet other fans from around the world.

Jaw-dropping stunt performances, freerunning shows, official SGP autograph sessions, Monster Energy entertainment and live music are just some of the activities in the packed programme.

Get your photos taken with the World Championship trophies and Monster Girls at 11.30am.

BMX and freerunning stunt performances kick off at 12:00 with a display from the Extreme Bike Battle team. In case you miss them, they’ll be back in action at 12.45, 13.30 and 14:45.

BT Sport presenters Scott Nicholls and Natalie Quirk will be on the main stage at 12:15 to give you an insight into what it takes to host a motorsport event live on TV.

To get the world’s biggest speedway party started, there will be live music pumping through the fanzone at 11:45, 12:30, 13:15 and 14:30.

At 13.45, it is your chance to meet the SGP riders! Double world champion Tai Woffinden will be at the SGP autograph table along with wild card and British champion Robert Lambert and two-time SGP winner Bartosz Zmarzlik. 

Then it is time to head over to the Monster Energy area for their Rig Riot at 14:00. Greg Hancock, Tai Woffinden, Chris Holder and Patryk Dudek will be on hand to sign autographs, and with Monster Energy giveaways and drinks up for grabs, this is one not to miss!

Meet even more SGP riders with a second autograph session at 15:00 at the SGP autograph table. Reigning world champion Jason Doyle will be signing alongside Craig Cook and the British SGP reserves, who are soon to be announced!

Throughout the day there will be food and beverage stalls, merchandise and programmes on sale and vintage speedway bike displays. Plus, delve into the technology of road racing and speedway bikes with a Science of Speed presentation brought to you University of Wales Trinity St. David.

The fanzone draws to a close when the gates to the Principality Stadium open at 15:30 - then it’s time to head over for live music and more action-packed entertainment in the opening ceremony! Engines start at 17:00.

If you still need your ticket to Cardiff, there's no need to miss out. They're still available from the WRU Shop near gate 3 at Principality Stadium.
