A new championship to start in 2024: NORA92 British Pro Championship
We are pleased to release the news that a new championship will start in 2024 with a brand new UK track and offering riders the opportunity to race in Europe for two rounds. The Championship will have title sponsorship that will be announced in the next few weeks and will run under the fastest-growing federation in world motocross, NORA92, who bring with them a wealth of experience.
The Championship will offer the biggest prize money fund for riders in the UK and Europe and work with the Bridgestone championship in creating a pyramid system so riders can progress from youth to professional. With Nora92 already investing heavily into an exciting youth program to support ten youth riders in the UK, everyone involved is working to grow motocross in the UK, reward pro riders and offer a path of progression.
Another new track will join Oakhanger, Oxford Moto Parc and Monster Mountain, and this will increase in 2025 with the addition of further new tracks and facilities, once again focusing on growing the sport in the UK. World-class track builders Alfie Smith and Justin Barclay will create some outstanding tracks, so expect exceptional racing throughout the series.
Every round will be available through a live stream with high-end production, including a studio show, live pit reporting, and teams and riders featured through pre-recorded videos and live from the track. Riders, teams and brands will get maximum exposure when participating in the series with a focus on growing their following. It doesn’t stop there. The series has a media partnership with MX Vice and Planet Motocross (Netherlands & Belgium) to stream each round across their social media channels with more media to follow.
Race service companies supporting riders and teams are welcome to come to each round and will be in a designated area in the pits to service their customers for free. Rider coaches, media professionals and partners are welcome at all events and must contact us for free accreditation. As well as a Championship for enthusiasts and fans, the championship is very much for the industry to be part of. Working together in the same direction will grow the sport quicker.
Spectators can visit each round and take advantage of the series’ giant outdoor screen showing all the racing, along with positions and the studio show when racing is not live. Expect clean toilets, bins, and refreshments at affordable prices to offer a pleasant environment for the family.
Dates will be released shortly with the names of the tracks the Championship will be racing in Europe. Setup will be on Saturday, and racing will be on Sunday at every round.
