DARWIN SECURES FIM MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE

DARWIN (Australia) 3 May 2024 – Infront Moto Racing is excited to announce that after a 24-year absence, the FIM Motocross World Championship will make a spectacular return to Australia in 2025 after a landmark agreement with the Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC), strongly supported by the Northern Territory Governmentto erect this project.

The Australian-exclusive deal, including Motorcycling Australia and NTMEC as key partners, will see the MXGP round held in Darwin in September 2025 until 2029, with an option to extend the collaboration beyond the initial five-year term. 

This event is set to highlight the Northern Territory’s extraordinary natural beauty globally and build on the ‘Top End’s’ already enviable reputation as an international tourist mecca.

This new round will be held on a purpose-built track at the Hidden Valley Motorsports Complex in Darwin and broadcast to more than 100 countries including national channel STAN . Construction will begin soon at the multi-purpose Hidden Valley Motorsports Complex. An exciting MXGP track will be located to ensure amazing spectator areas to see the heroes of world motocross work their magic.

The MXGP of Australia will feature the established MXGP and MX2 classes as well as the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship.

The Australian round of the FIM Motocross World Championship was previously held at Broadford in Victoria in 2000 and 2001. With a rich vein of talent coming through the ProMX national ranks in Australia, the MXGP round in Darwin will provide an opportunity for local stars to take part in the world’s premier motocross championship – just like their predecessors did in 2000 and 2001.

The full 2025 MXGP world championship calendar will be announced later this year, including when exactly the world’s best motocross riders will be ripping it up in Darwin.

Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle said: “Motorcycling Australia is delighted to see the FIM Motocross World Championship make its long-awaited return Down Under. Motocross racing at the highest level is electrifying, and I can’t wait to see the world’s best riders battling it out with Australia’s emerging ProMX stars in Darwin. It will be fast and furious from start to finish, with local and international fans in for an absolute treat. I’d like to congratulate the Northern Territory Government’s Northern Territory Major Events Company and Infront Moto Racing on forming this new partnership, with Motorcycling Australia be providing all the support it can to make the MXGP round in Darwin a resounding success.”
