MXGB has announced its calendar for the upcoming 2022 season, with an eight-round championship for the pro (adult) riders set to take place around England. There are no tracks for Scotland or Northern Ireland.
RHL Activities, rights holder and promoter, said when they took over the running of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship that they would need a year before they could start to introduce real change and innovation. So one year on from their teething season, 2022 could be a landmark year as RHL embarks on making MXGB the premier national championship in Europe.
While there isn’t a traditional circuit for the season opener, Culham has become the go-to track to get the British motocross championship underway in recent years. And that’s true in 2022. The circuit located on the banks of the River Thames will host the opener on March 12-13. While Sunday will be the day to note for many with MX1 and MX2, there are plenty of classes to enjoy across the whole weekend, including 65, SW85, BW85, 125, 250, MX2 and MX1.
Culham opened the British series in 2017 and 2018; was off the schedule in 2019, and returned in 2021 for the opening round.
Like March, April only gets one round, with Foxhill hosting round two on April 17. The classes for this venue are confirmed as SW85, BW85, 250, MX2 and MX1.
We get to enjoy two rounds in May. Cadders Hill, Lyng is up first on May 8 with BW85, 125, MX2, MX1 in action. Following Lyng is a championship round on May 22 with Canada Heights now announced to stage this event with BW85, 125, 250, MX2 and MX1 classes.
The award-winning picturesque Blaxhall circuit takes the MXGB series into Summer with a June 19 event slated for 125, 250, MX2 and MX1. FatCat follows that on July 9-10 with a full complement of classes: 65, SW85, BW85, 125, 250, MX2 and MX1. Then Whitby (Skelder Bank) is again on the schedule, with the notable difference of hosting the pro classes for the first time since 2014. Again there will be a full set of classes: 65, SW85, BW85, 125, 250, MX2 and MX1.
In 2014, Tommy Searle stood on the top step of the Skelder Bank MX1 podium with a clean sweep of the three motos. Joining Searle was Shaun Simpson (winner of the championship that year) and Loic Rombaut. In MX2, ‘The Arrow’, Matiss Karro had the Skelder Bank overall victory on his way to the championship title, with Mel Pocock and the late Steven Lenoir in second and third at Whitby.
The ACU and RHL have scheduled August 13-14 as a youth-only event with Warmingham Lane now announced with 65, SW85, BW85, 125 and 250 classes. This brings the series to the finale on September 10-11. This is the last circuit and has been announced as the Landrake circuit, with every class hosted.
