Make a weekend of it at Malilla’s ultimate festival of speedway as the Betard Scandinavian FIM Speedway Grand Prix takes over Hultsfred as well as the G&B Arena this weekend.

Malilla’s campsite next to the G&B Arena is already open and welcoming fans from around the world. If you’re looking for accommodation just a few minutes from the track, click here: http://bit.ly/2OjzShi.

But in a change for 2018, the Friday night festival takes place in Hultsfred’s OBS Järnvägsparken.

The party area opens from 19:00 and special guests Greg Hancock, Patryk Dudek, Maciej Janowski, Peter Ljung, Peter Karlsson and Joel Kling will be giving interviews and signing autographs from 20:00.

There will be live music by local band Pollux from 22:00 with a DJ from 23:00 to complete the perfect build-up to a huge night of racing on Saturday.

Fans based in the G&B Arena campsite can take advantage of a free shuttle bus to the Hultsfred festival, departing at 19:15 and returning at 00:15.

Saturday’s party takes place at the G&B Arena as usual, with a DJ taking to the stage after the Betard Scandinavian SGP from 22:00 until late.

Before the action, the party area will also host the SGP signing session, featuring world champion Jason Doyle, Greg Hancock, Nicki Pedersen and Peter Ljung from 17:10.

Need a ride to the G&B Arena from Hultsfred or Virserum on Saturday? No problem!

A shuttle bus picks up from Hultsfred Kloster at 16:00, Campingen at 16:15, Valhall at 16:30 and Malilla Coop at 16:45, returning at 23:00 and 01:15.

The Virserum bus leaves Tobro at 16:45, Hotell Dacke at 17:00 and Moliljan at 17:15, before returning at 23:00.

If you haven’t got a ticket, don’t worry! Tickets are still available online – buy and print at home here: http://bit.ly/2OToQ3m. Or get your tickets from the G&B Arena ticket office at the main entrance from 15:00 until 19:00 on Friday or from 13:00 on Saturday.
