This coming weekend (14th and 15th September) the Vets Motocross des Nations takes place at the famous Farleigh Castle venue. The stars of yesteryear from all over the World will descend on the Farleigh circuit, which overlooks the River Avon.

The 2013 Vets MXdN is the fifth edition of this fantastic event and with more than 500 entries in the Evo and Twinshock classes. There will be plenty of racing action to keep everyone entertained throughout the weekend, with the main highlight being the International Evo Team Event.

Current holders Team Belgium will be looking to retain their crown, the team will be led by Farleigh Supremo Werner De Wit, Johan Boonen along with Jan Lauryssen and Edmond Natterman who will face tough competition from Team France, Team USA, Team England and the Southern Hemisphere team.

Team France consists of multi World and AMA Champion Jean Michel Bayle riding a full factory 1989 RC 500 Honda, together with fellow World Champions Frederic Bolley, Jacky Vimond and Yves Demaria.

Team USA will be making the long journey to Farleigh Castle with 48 year old John “Junkyard” Dowd heading the team. Dowd will be tough to beat having recently scored points at the AMA Nationals at Southwick last year.

Team England will be fielding Mark Eastwood, Rob Herring, Mark Hucklebridge and Tom Church, while the DT Evo Series team will be featuring Phil Lewis, Phil Mercer, Rick De Feu and Brian Wheeler.  While the Southern Hemisphere team also looks like a very strong three man squad in the shape of Josh Coppins, Darryl King and Ryan Hunt.
