Infront Moto Racing has announced an agreement with the FFM (French Motorcycling Federation) to stage FIM Motocross World Championship rounds and multiple Motocross of Nations over the next six years.

Following the opening round of the MXGP series, Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo, along with the President of the FFM Sebastien Poirier, finalised a contract that will see MXGP events continue in France.

The renewal ensures the organisation of the MXGP of France every year until 2027 and two editions of the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in 2023 and 2026. In addition, the FIM Junior Motocross World Championship will be hosted by France in 2025.

“This agreement allows in particular to ensure an annual Grand Prix on French territory and a recurrence of the Motocross of Nations,” said David Luongo in a press release.

“Over the years, France has demonstrated the quality of its organisation, its clubs and its circuits capable of welcoming MXGP and above all the passion of its supporters. I would like to thank Mr Poirier and his teams for our collaboration – always constructive and fruitful.”

Poirier said: “I am delighted with the calendar decided with InFront, which secures the major motocross events to come until 2027. This allows our clubs to project themselves into the future and to work serenely. France is a great land of motocross which has trained many champions and has an exceptional breeding ground for the years to come. It is also widely recognised internationally for the quality of its organisations.”

The Lacapelle-Marival venue was recently confirmed as a new addition to the Grand Prix schedule and will stage the 2021 MXGP of France on October 10.
