For those that don’t know, the MCF is one of the biggest Motocross licencing bodies in the UK with over 2,000 members and almost 50 clubs throughout the country that stage hundreds of grass-roots Motocross races every year.
The team at the MCF are as passionate as the next person in the sport we all love and that’s why we’ve grouped together a bunch of great people from within the sport to help do the best we can for the British National Health Service.
If ever there was a time to get behind our countries selfless front-line NHS workers, now is the time to do it. The MC Federation have got nine teams taking part in seven challenges ending Sunday 3rd May all in aid of NHS Charities COVID-19 Urgent Appeal And Air Ambulance UK.
With the current Coronavirus pandemic having an unprecedented effect on the entire off road industry, the MCF has launched ‘MCF Team Aid’ to bring together our sport in a bid to support two incredible causes during this difficult time.
The MCF Team Aid team challenges consist of a back-wheel change competition, design a helmet (winner has there’s brought to life by Image Design Custom) and a 5k run. Teams will be scored and judged by a panel of judges consisting of the likes of three-time World Champion Dave Thorpe, former World number 2, Tommy Searle and MCF Manager Gareth Chamberlain (brother of the Nations manager, Mark).
Alongside the challenges, the MCF will be running online auction from 10 am Monday, April 27th to 8 pm Monday, May 4th with proceeds going to both charities.
Auction lots include:
- Arenacross VIP family ticket

MCF General Manager, Gareth Chamberlain, said “I think MCF Team Aid is a great opportunity for the motocross community and the off road world to come together, have some fun and help raise funds two services we rely on more than most. The two charities we have chosen to support are imperative to our industry, and we hope that through the challenges and online auction, we can help make a difference.”
With MCF Team Aid being born in these uncertain times the MCF would like to use the event to help raise funds for the unbelievably selfless, brave and relentless hard work of all the nurses, doctors and many other key workers at the NHS and Air Ambulance. Both of whom are imperative to the sport and the current crisis.
