MXGP 2023: Calendar update – new date for the British GP

Infront Moto Racing would like to share an update to the 2023 racing Calendar of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

The MXGP of Finland which is set to take place on July the 29th and 30th will see a change of venue as it will now take place in Vantaa. The event organizer, Vantaan Moottorikerho ry (Moto Club Vanta) has already hosted a successful FIM Junior Motocross World Championship last year at the renowned track of Lavanko in the city of Vantaa.

Vantaa is a historical place and first hosted the FIM Motocross World Championship in 1963 which was won by Torsten Hallman, 4-time World Champion. 30 years later in 1993 it was the legend Stefan Everts who clinched the victory in 250cc. Besides also MX3 rounds took place in 2011 and 2013. The track saw a complete renovation in 2020 to get a fine sand track and softer surface.

The MXGP of Finland will host the MXGP and MX2 categories with no additional classes foreseen. The city of Vantaa is really close from the capital city of Helsinki and is only located 10 minutes away from the airport of Helsinki.
