The course at Swanley, Kent known as Canada Heights, acquired its name during the 1914-18 War when a large contingent of Canadian troops were camped there on the high ground.

It has, however been in regular use for off-road motorcycle sports for many years, and by the Sidcup and District Motorcycle Club since 1952.

Over the years, the circuit has hosted many events, from Club level to International status. It drew large crowds and national television coverage with the BBC “Grandstand Trophy” events during the 1960s.

Despite its popularity and regular use by riders and spectators alike, it still remained just a rough piece of land for motorcycling until 1985, when the Sidcup Club bought it with the aid of a grant from the Sports Council and sponsorship from companies and individuals.

Once purchased, Club members set about transforming the whole area. Access roads were laid to improve entry for spectators. The tangled undergrowth was cleared to provide better parking and viewing. Then the exciting new track was created.

During recent years, the land has been dramatically improved, but never at the expense of the beautiful countryside and wildlife. Further land at the rear of the site was purchased in 2000 and in 2010 a storage barn was built to accommodate the ground maintenance equipment. The land has been properly managed with many new trees planted as the Club continues to develop the “South’s Most Spectacular Circuit”

The Sidcup Club is extremely proud of its asset and encourages its use by the Police for officers motorcycle training, walkers, horse riders, the Scouts, mountain bikers and others who love the countryside but are not involved in motorcycle sport.

The motocross track itself is spectacular and demanding. It brings out the very best in motocross riders allowing them to use every ounce of riding and athletic skills. Its popularity is seen by full entry lists for all our events and good crowds to see the action.
