The former motorcycle racer bought the Thoresway track near Caistor, Lincolnshire around six months ago. He says he has hired “the best” to get the track up and running, with the aim of holding the British Motocross Grand Prix there in years to come.

In a YouTube video for his followers, Guy from South Killingholme said: “My relationship with Thoresway was when I worked in Caistor. 

“Most people know it as Caistor, they don’t know it as Thoresway – it’s always been a legendary place.

“Every time you go past it, you look at the track and wonder what’s going on, trying to see who’s riding on it.

“Then I come and rode here and ended up riding for Honda. I used to ride here, I was cr*p but I loved it, I used to get home and be knackered.

“It was great. It was discipline for road racing and fitness, it was great.

“I ended up owning the track about six months ago. We have the best track builders on the case.”

The Thoresway is situated in the Lincolnshire Wolds, with builders saying it has the potential to be the best in the country due to its unique landscape.

Alfie Smith and Johnny Douglas, from Terraforma Mx circuit design, have been tasked with moulding the track and said it could have thousands of people in attendance when it is finished.

Johnny said: “It’s an amazing landscape, it’s got some really aggressive hills and it’s better than some Grand Prix tracks.

“It’s a uniquely extraordinary landscape and I’m hoping people will love it.

“We’ve been given the remit to give it the business.

“The landscape is unique. A prerequisite of decent motocross is to have an extraordinarily unique landscape.
