Youthstream announce a manufacturer’s team race!
ERNÉE (France), 29 September 2015 – After the celebration of the 69th edition of the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, Youthstream and the FIM met with the teams and manufacturers in a very positive atmosphere to make a summary of the 2015 season and discussed the improvements to be made for 2016.
Everyone agreed that it has been an excellent year for MXGP and they all shared their will to keep on cooperating to continue making the sport grow.
Mr Giuseppe Luongo, Youthstream’s President, used the opportunity to present a new big event which will be launched in 2016: the Riders and Manufacturers Cup, an event that will take place in the well-known Veltins Arena in Germany on the 8th October 2016. Every manufacturer will take part with their 2 best MXGP riders and their best MX2 rider, the concept will be similar to the MXoN but instead of the riders riding for their country they will ride for their manufacturer. The format will be 3 races with the 3 riders per manufacturer in each race, and the race track will be built with riders’ safety as priority while providing a great show for the fans. The event will be televised worldwide with a television coverage similar to the MXGP World Championship. Financial support will be given to the manufacturers and substantial prize money will be available for riders and manufacturers. This new project will be organized and promoted by Youthstream, be sanctioned by FIM, in cooperation with ADAC and DMSB and have the participation of all the Motocross manufacturers and all the best Motocross riders in the world.
