Loket, one of the most famous circuits on the MXGP calendar will stay on the schedule until at least 2025, with Infront Moto Racing signing a deal that will help ensure the future of the MXGP of Czech Republic.

Located 150km west of Prague, the old-school hard-pack circuit of Loketske Serpentiny, Loket, has been part of the FIM Motocross World Championship calendar since 1995, hosting some incredible action over the years.

While the Czech Republic Grand Prix was missed from the 2020 calendar, due to Covid-19 pandemic, in 2019 Loket hosted some intense racing that saw Romain Febvre claim maximum points in both races to secure the overall victory ahead of Tim Gajser and Jeremy Seewer. While in MX2, it was Jorge Prado who was victorious, with Henry Jacobi and Thomas Kjer Olsen also joining the Spaniard on the podium.

“We are very excited to go on for a long term of five years, it is an important decision for all parties involved,” said Infront Moto Racing’s COO Daniele Rizzi. “Over the next five years, we will make sure that the sport of motocross is developing even further in the country and this is a very important agreement that we have reached today. It has been many good years in Loket so far and it will be even more rewarding to be there with ACCR for the coming five years.

“Relations like this, with ACCR and with a strong motorcycling club that Loket is, are the fundamentals to create a solid growth for the sport and a solid future for motocross.”

Autoclub of the Czech Republic President Jan Šťovíček underlines the importance of this renewal. “This is a historical moment for us and for our country,” he said. “We are signing a contract for five years. Czech fans and spectators can enjoy MXGP for five years as the most important international event in the country of the season.”
