The BMX British Championships was held at a new venue in the late 80’s , it was the at the American Adventure Theme Park in Ilkeston Derbyshire , which actually is not very American , not really that adventurous and to be honest it was not really a theme park except for one biggish rollercoaster called The Missile ….i think , which i managed to climb up a few years later whilst i was drunk , but that’s a whole different story which i can’t tell for legal reasons haha, so moving quickly on………
The track was built in a bowl , and i think it was pretty good for the time , but im sure others will disagree haha
All you kids who have only ever seen Champs races at Cheddar missed out on some very interesting tracks in the 80s and early 90s!!!!
Here is a vid of Dale Holmes winning the Pro Cruiser final in 1990 at the American Adventure Theme Park track.
