Cadders Hill Information

History

Cadders Hill, Lyng is a natural hillside motocross circuit, primarily sand based, without too many man made obstacles. It is nonetheless a spectacular, physically demanding motocross venue that has witnessed many titanic battles for championship points. The Norwich Viking MCC team is constantly updating facilities for both riders and spectators.

The Norwich Vikings have been organizing motorcycle events at the Cadders Hill venue since 1936. Originally the venue was used for hillclimbs. After the war they ran what were known as mountain grasstracks until the circuit became too rough and from 1949 onwards they switched to scrambles. Club President, Dennis Slaughter MBE, started competing there in 1948 and has been involved in one capacity or another ever since and still spends much of his time maintaining the track.

Lyng was one of the venues for the Grandstand Television Trophy scrambles in the late 60s; it also hosted a 125cc Grand Prix in 1993 and has been running British Championship events for over 30 years.
