MXGP returns to Australia from 2025

The news fell in the night, and came from distant Australia; From next season, for at least five years, the MXGP will be in Australia, precisely in Darwin.

We don't know if the teams will welcome this news, but Infront has confirmed that they have signed a five-year deal to organize the Australian GP, ​​scheduled for September each year. Australia is one of the 'justified' places, along with Japan, as the country has produced enough champions (Jeff Leask, Andrew McFarlane, Chad Reed, the Lawrence brothers and others) for the World Championships and the Americans. He returns there one day. Back there, yes, a triple GP was organized there under the Tourna era as the 500 was discontinued in 2000 (win for Joel Smets) (wins for James Dobb, Michael Pichon and Stephen Everts). During the GP 500, local Andrew McFarlane caught the eye of Michael Rinaldi in 2000, who hired him for the following season.

While these two GPs took place in Bradford, in September 2025 the MX2, MXGP riders and women will travel this time to Darwin in Australia's far north.

David Luongo: ” We are truly delighted to bring MXGP to Australia and Darwin, marking a successful visit to this dynamic country. Australian fans are as impatient as ever to get their Grand Prix, as they have been waiting and talking about a round in their home country for years. Additionally, hosting the event in Australia not only reinforces its position as a major player on the global motocross scene, but also underlines our commitment to showcasing this exciting sport to fans around the world and expanding events overseas. We look forward to witnessing the overwhelming enthusiasm and support of local and international fans as Australia becomes part of the MXGP calendar from 2025.. »
