2008 and 2009 FIM Motocross of Nations – venues announced

Posted:

It was confirmed yesterday that the Olympic Games of Motocross, the FIM Motocross of Nations will be hosted in Northern Ireland in September 2008, and in Italy in 2009, with the latter venue still to be announced. Widely regarded as the largest and most prestigious off road motorcycle race in the world, the Motocross of Nations 2008 will be hosted at Moneyglass Demesne, the venue which held the FIM World Championship Motocross Grand Prix of Northern Ireland in August 2007. At the official press conference at the Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations 2007, Budds Creek, Maryland, were FIM President Vito Ippolito; FIM/CMS President Dr. Wolfgang Srb; President of Youthstream, Giuseppe Luongo; Jasper Perry, Acting Chief Executive of the Northern Ireland Events Company; Paolo Sesti, President of the FMI-Italian Motorcycling Federation. Giuseppe Luongo stated: ‰ÛÏI am very satisfied about the latest FIM Motocross of Nations; it was a success, and it means that this event is becoming bigger and bigger. We want to continue to grow, and this is why we already look at the future, by announcing the venues of the FIM Motocross of Nations for the next two years. We will go to Northern Ireland in 2008, then to Italy in 2009. We want to go bigger and better, and we have to work to bring the event to very big venues, with a lot of space that we can use. This is our goal and we are not taking a step back; we want to be able to run the event in any weather conditions, because we do not want to stop.‰Û
