MX Nationals UK first round postponed
It is with regret that the organising team of the Michelin MX Nationals have made the tough decision to postpone round 1 of the 2023 championship scheduled for Oakhanger, Hampshire, this weekend (11/12th March).
Due to initial snowfall, then persistent heavy showers of sleet and rain, the team are conscious of the safety of everyone attending with movements in the paddock and potential damage to vehicles. This will also have a profound effect on the local roads surrounding the venue, with traffic entering and exiting the site.
The MX Nationals team are all too fully aware of the time, money and effort that goes into racing, the value of bikes, equipment and Motorhomes, and the long season ahead in this current cost of living crisis. With that very much in mind and the access and safety of all personnel and the medical team, the decision to postpone has been called.
The team are now working on trying to reschedule Round 1 of the Michelin MX Nationals championship to run at Oakhanger on the weekend of March 25/26th. Contingency plans are also being put in place to run at another venue on that weekend should the weather once again prevent the opening round of the championship from being run at Oakhanger.
The MX Nationals team wish to apologise for any inconvenience and is bitterly disappointed not to be getting the championship underway this weekend, especially after the incredible amount of hard work and time invested in finding an exciting new venue for British Motocross.
Rider’s and spectator’s entries will be carried over. Please bear with the team over the next 48 hours while they start packing down the site and have limited opportunities to answer enquiries.

Thanks for your cooperation.
The MX Nationals team.
