FIM ANNOUNCES POSTPONEMENT OF 2020 SPEEDWAY OF NATIONS

2020 Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations postponed.

24 / 03 / 2020, 16:00

Following health and safety directives issued by the governments of Germany and Latvia, amid global health concerns over COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and BSI Speedway have taken the decision to postpone the first two events of the 2020 Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations in Landshut, Germany on April 25 and Daugavpils, Latvia on May 2 respectively.

Furthermore, on the advice of Public Health England and in line with UK government emergency measures on movement, which includes the suspension of outdoor events, the FIM and BSI Speedway have postponed the final of the Speedway of Nations, scheduled for Belle Vue, Manchester on May 8-9.

These decisions were made after careful consideration and consultation between the FIM, BSI Speedway and local organisers as the health and safety of everyone involved in the events remains our priority. All parties are studying alternative dates for all Speedway of Nations events and further details will be provided in due course.

Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of Motorsports Events at IMG, the promoter of Speedway World Championships through BSI Speedway, said: “We know that fans will be disappointed by the postponements, but the health and safety of the entire speedway community is of paramount importance to us, and we trust that people appreciate that it is not possible to stage the events in April and May. We thank our fans, riders and partners for their understanding in these difficult times.”
