The battle for a position in the 2025 FIM Speedway Grand Prix (SGP) series for Australia’s top guns starts now with news that Motorcycling Australia (MA) has been allocated five spots for riders to go through the European-based qualifying process in 2024.

The five qualifying spots, awarded by the FIM Track Commission, will be allocated to the following Australian riders:

  • Those who finish first to fourth in the 2024 Australian Speedway Championship; and
  • The first-placed Australian rider (with an MA licence) in the 2024 FIM Oceania Speedway Championship.

This is the first time that an SGP qualifying position has been allocated via the FIM Oceania Championship, with the five qualifying spots for Australian riders only equalled by four other nations across the speedway globe.

The four qualifying rounds in 2024 will be held on May 20 (Germany and Hungary) and May 25 (Italy and Slovakia) respectively, with one Australian to compete in all rounds except Italy, where two will be in action.

The top four riders from each qualifying round will then progress to the final-frontier SGP Challenge meeting on October 4, where the top three will then be added to the 2025 SGP roster.

Jack Holder and Max Fricke went through the pressure-packed qualification process in 2022 to lock in a spot in the 2023 SGP field, and this year Jason Doyle followed suit to ensure the 2017 world champion’s career in speedway’s showpiece series will continue into a 10th year in 2024.

For a fresh batch of riders, the qualification process begins with the 2024 Australian Speedway Championship, which starts in North Brisbane on January 4 before visiting Kurri Kurri (January 7), Albury-Wodonga (January 9), Mildura (January 11) and Gillman (January 13).

The Gillman track in Adelaide will then continue its busy summer by hosting the 2024 FIM Oceania Speedway Championship on January 27. Nominations are now open for that event by clicking here.
