Matterley Basin - Motocross Heaven
News Tuesday 14th August 2012 By Geoff Meyer
What might surprise many people is that the first ever Motocross race was held just 50 kilometres from the Matterley Basin circuit, where the British Grand Prix will be held on August 16, 17, 18 and 19. Motocross is not a very different sport than it was back in 1924 when it was first run. Motocross began as Scrambles and the first known Scrambles event was held at Camberley in Surrey in England.
