French International date set

The seventh annual Lacapelle Marival International will be on February 18, a week after the Hawkstone International and the final race before the opening MXGP at Argentina.

Located in southern west of France, Lacapelle Marival has hosted several Grands Prix (Sidecar, Women and MX3) but also European and French Championship rounds. They are now fully focused on their pre season event, which is now the biggest in France since the event at Valence was stopped.

“Last year we had a strong line up and it seems that this year will be even better,” said Vincent Ayroles, former MX rider and member of the staff for Lacapelle Marival . “We had a good feedback from the teams in February, and our goal is to do even better next year. We are talking with nearly all the factory teams, and even if there’s the last round of the Italian Championship at the same date we are optimistic as we already signed with Kawasaki KRT, Yamaha Kemea, Husqvarna Rockstar and Bud Racing Kawasaki. For sure within a few weeks some other top names will be confirmed,” he continued.

As usual the MX2 riders and MXGP riders will have separate races (two heats per class) before the Super final where the best representative of each class will join for the final race. “ Everyone enjoyed this race format, so we’ll keep it. The event will be organised on a single day, so we can preserve the track as we’ll be early in the season; practice sessions and races will take place on Sunday 18th,” he continued. Last year Clement Desalle and Benoit Paturel won the MXGP and MX2 classes.

Lacapelle Marival is located in the southern west of France, 80km south east of Brive and 180km north of Toulouse. More information on the web site and on the facebook page
