The expert riders from the Adrenaline Tour motorcycle stunt show are one of the headline attractions at this year’s big event, with an action-packed display that aims to entertain petrolheads of all ages.

But there will be lots of traditional attractions, too, including the equestrian events, dog agility display and dog competitions, a birds of prey display and a chainsaw carver.

And that’s without mentioning the vintage cars, tractors, go karts, and many other highlights.

Organisers say that the horse events include qualifiers for some of the biggest events on the equestrian calendar, so there’s sure to be a compelling competition to provide great entertainment for spectators.
