The goal; the enable riders to go faster, harder, and safer than they have been before.
The 2022 FIM World Supercross Championship also breaks from tradition with a new event format designed to maximise action, excitement, and entertainment.
The addition of a superpole session for the WSX (450cc) class will see 10 riders – the top five finishers from the two heat races – set off one at a time in a time trial format, with lap times determining gate picks for the main events.
For both the WSX and SX2 (250cc) classes, the main events are also overhauled. For the WSX class, the typical 20-minute races have been replaced with two eight-minute races and a 12-minute race, with just five minutes in between. The result is an increase in the overall level of intensity and unpredictability, and more emphasis on the importance of a good start. The SX2 class will get two six-minute and one 10-minute race.
Adam Bailey, managing director of motorsport for SX Global, the Australian firm spearheading the new World Supercross Championship, said, “After all the hype, all the build up, race week is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited to get going and finally take the sport of supercross to global audiences as part of a world championship. The track design from the guys at Dream Traxx looks incredible and I’m sure it’s going to deliver a night of close, intense, and competitive action. We’re all set with the biggest teams and the best riders ready to put on an amazing racing spectacle for the UK fans, while live music, stunt shows, and fireworks will make it an unforgettable night out.
