It’s the end for MX Nationals as we know it

The MX Nationals championship will end at round five at Hawkstone Park on September 2-3 which will be the final ever round of the series under its current format, say organisers. “Now is the time for change, and we look forward to doing something new in the future. This is the end of MX Nationals Championship as you know it,” said Neil Irwin, MX Nationals Director.

“While we understand the disappointment this news may bring, we firmly believe that it is the right decision for MX Nationals, Pro teams and riders in mind,” he said. “With the dwindling registered riders’ entries and the increased number of wildcards each round, it is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain the series, and it questions what the future of the championship and British Motocross looks like. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the participants, teams, sponsors, and fans who have shown unwavering support and enthusiasm for the Michelin MX Nationals series over ten years. Your dedication and encouragement have been instrumental in driving the championship’s success over the years.”

Originally planned as a six-round championship this year, unforeseen challenges arising from the persistent British weather, the closure of secure tracks mid-season, and a heavily packed MX calendar during September and October have necessitated calling the championship to an end at round five. The final round of the 2023 championship will be round five at Hawkstone Park on September 2-3 .

Paul Irwin – Race Director, added, “We invite you all to join us at Hawkstone as we celebrate the victories and the end of the season in style. The final round promises to be a thrilling event where the best of the best will showcase their skills and compete for the coveted championship titles. Let us come together to honour the riders’ accomplishments and witness the crowning of the 2023 MX Nationals champions.”
