In light of an increase in cases of COVID-19 in the UK, the subsequent tighter restrictions being put in place and ongoing travel and quarantine restrictions, BSI Speedway has announced that the 2020 Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Final, scheduled to take place at Manchester’s National Speedway Stadium on October 24 and 25, will be moved to a new venue in mainland Europe.
“We’re committed to delivering the thrilling, action-packed final that our speedway community is looking forward to,” commented Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of Motorsports Events at IMG.
“And to do this, we need to make sure the top riders from all seven competing nations are able to race, which is unfortunately no longer possible in the UK due to changing travel restrictions and quarantine requirements.”
BSI Speedway is in the process of finalising the new venue for the final in October which will be announced along with additional details in the coming weeks.
The 2021 final will return to Manchester’s National Speedway Stadium over a weekend in October 2021 - date to be confirmed.
Bellamy added: “We’re looking forward to revealing our new venue as soon as possible, and in the meantime, we thank our fans, riders, partners, staff and everyone involved for their ongoing support.”
Fans who have purchased tickets for the event will receive an email with further details.
