As all eyes turn to the 2024 season, the Fastest 40 championship (Formerly MX Nationals) are delighted to confirm their dates for the 6-round championship. The team have worked hard to ensure minimal date clashes with the MXGP calendar (including no date clashes with EMX125 rounds), alongside MXGB and domestic championships, for the greater good of the sport.
The name change is not the only new element to the 2024 championship, with the move to Pro Saturday and Amateur Sunday being the biggest change, which has been embraced by teams and riders, with many making commitment to the series back in September.
Saturday will see racing action from the three pro classes.
· EMX Style 125cc class youth/adult combined scored separately.
· Pro MX2 -250cc class
· Pro MX1– 450cc class
All classes will have 15 minutes of free practice followed by 20-minute timed practice (40+2 reserves to qualify) and two blocks of racing.
The day will run as close to the GP style format possible to prepare and enhance rider experience and progression.
On the Sunday, the below classes will line up for
practice/timed training, followed by three blocks of racing.
· Clubman MX2 ACU British Championship
· Clubman MX1 ACU British Championship
· Pro Amateurs MX2
· Pro Amateurs MX1
· Honda CRF250R Cup (New for 2024)
All Sunday riders are welcome to come along and make a weekend of it, taking full advantage of watching on Saturday and riding on Sunday.
No strangers to trying new things, the team, which has powered the MX Nationals series for a decade and led innovation, will continue to live stream all six rounds and, for the first time, will live stream the racing action from both Pro Saturday and Amateur Sunday.
