The world’s first ever scooter festival, Scootfest, has been hailed a success by scooter veterans, amateurs and spectators alike, after a weekend of top freestyle scooter action unfurled at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.

Scootfest saw a 2,500 strong crowd descend on the festival, as 100 professional kick-scooter enthusiasts from around the globe battled to claim victory in the sport’s first ever World Cup. Over 1,000 amateur scooter fanatics got their first taste of competition too on an array of public courses, pro parks and street arenas.

Stoneleigh Park hosted five scooter parks for beginner and pro scooter fanatics to test their skills, but also an outdoor cinema, a fairground, and a 500 pitch campsite. Further entertainment was provided well into the evening by Rudimental and a DJ set with Chase & Status featuring MC RAGE on the main music stage.

Stuart Brass, director, SoulSports organiser of Scootfest, said: “Scootfest was a huge event for us this summer, and hopefully all of the amateur and professional scooter fans, and indeed the spectators, had a lot of fun, and enjoyed the party that went well into the evening.

“Stoneleigh Park was the perfect venue for Scootfest, particularly with its vast outdoor space and excellent facilities. There aren’t too many venues in the UK that could accommodate five different scooter parks, an outdoor cinema, music stages, a fairground, and still have space for 500 camping pitches! As such, we hope to be back again at Stoneleigh Park in 2013!”
