The 2022 Michelin MX Nationals calendar has been announced, with the six-round schedule starting on March 19-20 and concluding on September 3-4.
The championship propelled itself to a new high level in the last campaign with its free live streaming, which pulled in over 100,000 viewers from all four corners of the globe – promoting British championship motocross in a positive and professional light. Youth, Clubman and Amateur riders shared the limelight in the near eight hours of uninterrupted coverage from each round, along with the Expert and Pro ‘Fastest 40’ riders.
The 2022 MX Nationals championship will be a six-round series starting in March and ending the first weekend of September, with events no fewer than three weeks apart, giving riders, teams and the organisers enough time to recover and prepare correctly for the following round.
The MX Nationals expect to confirm the venues soon and are in the process of crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s. There’s also the juicy potential of new venues for the championship. “After the chaos of the past two years with Covid and races coming thick and fast in a condensed season this year, we really wanted to try and get a good balance back to our championship,” MX Nationals Director Paul Irwin said.
“It’s hard work at the best of the times, even more so running back-to-back weekends. So we’re pleased to have a nice rhythm to our 2022 calendar.
“We really wanted to be in a position to also announce all the venues, but we’re just not quite there with some of the venues as they have to clear a few things on their end, and we’d rather announce all the venues at the same time.
“As soon as we have confirmation on them, we’ll announce where we’re going, hopefully with a couple of new ones to the championship.
“We’re excited about getting six quality rounds of British championship racing out there next year and with the reach of our free to view live streaming, again getting the Michelin MX Nationals powered by Milwaukee spread around the world.”
