FIM Adds 300 2 Stroke Championship in '14Tuesday, June 25, 2013 | 9:40 AM
Youthstream Press Release
FUNCHAL (Portugal) - After a meeting between manufacturers and FIM, Youthstream and FIM Europe are glad to announce the start of a new European 300cc 2 stroke Championship next season. All the parties agreed that this series is likely to have a great success and it will be the base to take part in the FIM Motocross World Championship.
The market demand of the 2 stroke for Motocross is increasing rapidly. Youthstream plans to hold between 6 to 7 races together with the MXGP (like it is already done for the 125cc and 250cc). The suggested capacity for the technical rules is going to be from 200cc to 300cc 2 stroke.
Youthstream and FIM Europe believe a large number of riders is going to participate in this Championship, especially taking into account that the FIM MX3 World Championship will stop in 2014 and for sure there will be many riders willing to enter the new European 300cc 2 stroke series.
