Although it’s been speculated for a while, it’s always great to get the official PR! One of the rider’s favourite teams to work under, Standing Construct Honda have secured the young and talented Alberto Forato for 2024. Along with Pauls Jonass the team will surely be not just one of the professional in the paddock but fun and friendly! A great match.

Standing Construct Honda MXGP is delighted to announce the signing of Italian sensation Alberto Forato for the upcoming 2024 MXGP season. The 23-year-old talent is set to campaign a Honda CRF450R alongside Pauls Jonass in the highly anticipated 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship.

Forato first made waves on the world stage in 2013 in the European Championship EMX150 class, where he competed on a Honda CRF150 and finished as the championship runner-up. Since then, his remarkable talent has propelled him through the ranks.

Starting his 450 career in 2021, “Alby” has demonstrated consistent improvement each year. After finishing 18th overall in his first full season in MXGP, he has progressed impressively, and finished 11th in 2022.

Continuing his upward trajectory, the charismatic #303 achieved four top-five race finishes in 2023, which includes a thrilling third-place finish in Race 1 at his home Grand Prix in Maggiora.

He was also one of only six riders to win a Qualifying Race and ended his 2023 campaign ranked seventh in the world.

Alberto Forato:
“I’m happy to be back with the Honda family and to join the Standing Construct Honda MXGP team. It’s so important to have a solid team behind you and a strong bike, so I’m really looking forward to the new challenge and seeing what we can do in 2024.”

Tim Mathys:
“We are pleased to welcome Alberto Forato to the team for the 2024 MXGP season. We’ve been watching him in MXGP over the past two years, and his progress has been nothing short of impressive. He will be a great addition to our team, and we look forward to seeing what he, together with Pauls Jonass, can achieve!”

BREAKING NEWS: Nora Pro Championship dates released

Published

on

Just in. The dates have been selected for the new Nora Pro Championship for 2024. Whilst there are no surprises that there were going to be clashing it still allows riders to race on a Saturday and a Sunday if they want to ride two championships. The good news we hear is the prize fund is substantial and if facts are correct the biggest prize fund in European Motocross. More information will be released this week. PR Below.

We are pleased to announce the dates agreed for the 2024 championship. As you can imagine this was extremely difficult and we had to take some time to deliberate because we didn’t want to clash with the Bridgestone Championship as this will act as the feeder series to the Pro Championship, the Dirtstore British Championship, the Nora British Cup, and some European EMX races. Whilst taking all these into account it didn’t leave many dates available, and unfortunately, there will be clashes with other series including the Fastest 40. However, with the Fastest 40 running their Pro group on a Saturday and the Nora Pro Championship on Sunday only, we hope this helps.

The dates will be as follows:

24th March 2024 – UK

21st April 2024 – UK

12th May 2024 – Europe

28th July 2024 – UK

25th August – Europe

8th September – UK

Tracks will be released over the next two weeks as contracts are completed. The UK tracks have been agreed and as mentioned in a previous release there will be a brand new UK motocross track that no one has used, a great step in the right direction when so many tracks are being closed.

A huge thank you for the support and feedback that we have received already and we are taking that into account. We believe in open communication so we will explain every decision openly to offer clarity.

We are working very hard behind the scenes and are implementing everything to make this championship one of the most professional in Europe. Our only goal is to raise the bar of British motocross.

New website, title sponsor, tracks, European races, partners, features, teams and riders will be released over the coming weeks.

BREAKING NEWS: New Championship for the UK & Europe

Published

on

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.
