Masters of Dirt, a freestyle motocross entertainment show, rides into town on March 14. Here's a look at a few extreme sports events in London.

Go karting London, Tower Bridge

From one-off races to group events, and heat-based ‘Grand Prix’-styled comps, this Thames-side track, TeamSport’s 2010-opening flagship venue, caters for all. With hair-raising bends and fearsome flyovers, this two-tier track – two levels which can be used as individual tracks or combined for the ultimate test – offers top karting opportunities.

Dates and times vary
100 Clements Road, SE16 4DG
£42+
Tube: Bermondsey

Banger racing, Wimbledon

What could be better than watching a bunch of guys drive souped-up, salvaged crash-machines with little regard for either their own or their competitors’ safety? The figure-of-eight track and comically unforgiving speeds make for a collision-riddled race. Stock Car racing and Hot Rods also feature at this top south London racing venue.

Sun, Mar 4. 5.30pm
Wimbledon Stadium, Plough Lane, SW17 0BL
£12+
Rail: Wimbledon

London Motorcycle Museum, Middlesex

London’s only biking museum, which celebrates the history heritage and future of life on two wheels, the LMM,
is home to collections of British bikes that have been restored and preserved. Featuring more than 100 machines, dating back to a 1902 Ormode up to the 1991 Norton Rotary, the museum is also host to a number of events, next up being a relaibly British St George’s Day Harley Hog Roast on April 22.

Opening times vary
29 Oldfield Lane, Greenford, UB6 9LD
£8
Rail: South Greenford

All-day Scooter Sunday, Ace Cafe

Scooters are not just for Mods and Quadrophenia’s Jimmy, as this all-day scooter-celebrating event clearly demonstrates. Combined with the Vespa Club Great Britain’s 60th anniversary, this meet will be the place to be for scooter riders to show off their two-wheeled ‘beasts’, to meet other scooter riders and lovers, as well as those just wanting to marvel at the fantastic machines themselves.

March 25
Ace Cafe, Stonebridge, NW10 7UD
Free
Tube: Stonebridge Park

BMX Olympics, Olympic Park

Not a sport that is readily associated with the Olympics, BMX makes only its second appearance at the Games after its debut in Beijing. With the Olympic BMX track hailed as “a spectactuar course in a spectacular setting” by none other than BMX World Champion Mariana Pajon, it’s a top venue to catch the world’s finest riders competing for the coveted Gold Medal at the self-styled, ‘Greatest show on Earth’. Britain’s hopes for glory? That would be the impressive 22-year-old Liam Phillips, who’s already a two-time world champ silver medalist with ten consecutive British Championship titles. And three times UCI BMX World Champ Shanaze Reade (above right).

Aug 8-10
BMX Olympic Park, Stratford
£20+
Tube: Stratford

Redbridge Cycle Centre, Redbridge

Benefitting from the Olympics’ legacy and part-funded with £4.5m from the London Development Agency, this cycle centre offers road and off-road purpose-built tracks: urban mountain biking that lets you take to the wilds of the east London and still get the Tube home. Top choice is the 3km MTB single-track, which boats a smart descent section.

Forest Road, Hainault, Ilford, IG6 3HP
£2+
Tube: Hainault
