Privateer Challenge For 2014 MXGP Season

During the second edition of the MXGP Festival, which will take place in Matterley Basin on the 22, 23, 24 and 25 August, Privateers will have the opportunity to participate in a challenge giving them the possibility to take part in the 2014 MXGP (current MX1 class) season without having to pay the participation fee.

On Saturday, 24th August, two practice sessions will be organized at the British track and riders who obtain a lap time within the 110% of the average of the top ten MX1 lap times in the pre-qualifying session will have the possibility to enter 1 or more MXGP event(s) without having to pay the contribution fee, based on available place.

The riders who accept the challenge will take part in one free practice and one timed practice using a 450cc 4stroke bike under the same track conditions as the MX1 class.

These are the riders who can participate in this test:

– riders who did not race GPs in 2013
– riders who are not part of an OAT (Officially Approved Team)
– privateers
– riders of all nationalities (not just UK)
– for insurance purposes riders must have an FIM licence to take part in the test

There will be no participation fee to enter this challenge and each rider will receive one pass to enjoy the full schedule of racing of the MXGP Festival. The riders who pass this test are able to participate in a 2014 MXGP event or more MXGP events under the condition there are available spaces and the riders have all the necessary documents (FIM licences, entry forms, etc).

To obtain more information contact Mr Marc PAUWELS at [email protected], it’s necessary to send your curriculum to show your level of riding in order to be accepted for this test. We will accept a maximum of 50 riders based on their current best results of the last 3 years on the Championship where they participate.
