National Standard BMX Racing Track in Cornwall – You can make it happen!

This project has been set up to build a National Standard BMX Race Track on land at Carn Brea in Cornwall which will put the county clearly on the map for the future of BMX Racing. At this stage we need your help to raise money which will be used as matched-funding to secure the larger funding required to build this fantastic new facility.

We have worked really hard to get to this stage of this project – IT IS NOW YOUR TURN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Cornwall BMX Racing Club is a well-established racing club with a growing membership and significant record of achievements at local, Regional, National and International levels. The club is British Cycling affiliated and has Go-Ride accreditation, with British Cycling qualified in-house coaches that provide regular training sessions.

We are based in the beautiful county of Cornwall in the south west of England and want you to come and experience all of our fantastic assets whilst also being able to ride a top class BMX Race facility – SUN, SAND, SURF and BMX RACING….what more could you ask for?

This new track will become a centre of excellence over time with exemplar National facilities to allow the continuous development of riders. The track will support riders by providing qualified coaches who are able to inspire and develop riders to meet their own goals and targets. Whilst the track’s key objective is to provide National BMX Racing within easy reach of the main conurbations of Camborne, Redruth, Pool and Truro, it will be developed and located to attract all levels of riders from wider-reaching areas.

The track will act as a hub of activity and capture your aspirations whether you want to simply fun free-ride with friends, become a Cornish Champion, compete at Regional level, take on the National BMX Race Series or represent Great Britain at World and international level. It is planned to use a blend of initiatives to ensure that the club secures incomes streams which in turn will ensure sustainability of the facilities.

Communities in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth Community Network Area have been awarded a total of £47,300 to help them run local services and organisations. The grants have been awarded by the area’s Community Network Panel, using money allocated from Cornwall Council’s ‘Local Devolution Fund’.

The Local Devolution Fund, which totals £608,000, has been divided between Cornwall’s 19 Community Network Panels.  It can be used to support the devolution of Cornwall Council services and assets to town and parish councils, and other local organisations, or to support local partnership working projects.

  • Cornwall BMX Racing Club, who are planning on using the funding to provide a world class facility at Carn Brea so that the young people of Cornwall can compete on a national level.

Mark England, Chairman of Cornwall BMX Racing Club, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the club and its partners to develop a much needed high standard BMX Racing facility in Cornwall. We are grateful to Cornwall Council for this contribution towards taking on the management and development of this community sports facility which also has wider benefits to the whole of the South West and will attract riders from across UK.”
