The Norwich Vikings club are hosting the meeting at their famous Cadders Hill circuit, where they have held events for the past 60 years.
The first two rounds this year, at Swanley in Kent and Landrake in Cornwall, have produced some exellent, closely fought races, particularly in the MX2 class for 250 cc fourstroke bikes.
With 2006 Champion, Carl Nunn, still recovering from a back injury, the favourite will be 17-year-old Tommy Searle on the factory KTM, but he will face tough opposition from the Kawasakis of South African Gareth Swanepoel, Shaun Simpson and Tom Church.
