The 2019 MXGP of Great Britain at Matterley Basin will dramatically switch from its customary Summertime slot to March 24, it has been revealed today.
Don’t Miss: How to watch Matterley Basin Grand Prix
The start of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship is so far unconfirmed. With a late February date it looks like it could (likely will) start outside Europe, but when it returns for its first Euro-round Matterley Basin gets the honour with European Championship action coming from EMX250 and EMX300.
After the three European rounds, teams start the Asian tour, starting with the new MXGP of Hong Kong followed by the equally new MXGP of China, which will be held on May 1.
The 2019 MXGP season will conclude on September 22 at Imola, in Italy with support races from EMX125, EMX250 and EMX300.
We’ll have the full look at the 2019 MXGP venue line-up shortly but for now the calendar is below, including the confirmed date and venue for the 2019 Motocross des Nations.
Note that this is a provisional schedule and will be amended over the coming months.
