INFORMATION –  FIM GRAND PRIX WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – 2022 CALENDAR UPDATE –   FINLAND POSTPONED TO 2023

Please find enclosed the Press Release / FIM Grand Prix World Championship 2022 Calendar – UPDATE 25 May.

Finland postponed to 2023

The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports are obliged to announce changes to the 2022 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship calendar.

Homologation works at the KymiRing, together with the risks caused by the ongoing geopolitical situation in the region, have sadly obliged the cancellation of the Finnish Grand Prix in 2022. The current circumstances have created delays and put the ongoing work at the new circuit at risk. All parties have therefore agreed that the track’s debut must be postponed to 2023, when MotoGP™ looks forward to returning to Finland for the first time in four decades.

The final 2022 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship calendar is therefore expected to comprise 20 rounds.

There is no doubt that the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) remains a real challenge on many different levels and preparing and maintaining your motorcycle is one of the most important parts of the ISDE. As per previous editions ISDE competitors will again be able to take advantage of an extensive range of racing and rental services provided by the major manufacturers at this year’s event at Le Puy-en-Velay, France from Monday 29 August to Saturday 3 September.

Riders will be able to rent the latest models and enjoy the performance and reliability benefits of riding a new factory machine prepared by mechanics who have great ISDE experience, or alternatively can choose to use their own motorcycle although can still profit from the expert assistance and spares back up that will be on hand. Choosing any of these options will help towards a hassle-free week, which offers the best chance of getting the absolute most from the adventure that the ISDE is.

LETTER FROM THE FIM PRESIDENT – 2022 FIM SUSTAINABILITY WEEK

Jorge Viegas, FIM President © Good-Shoot David Reygondeau

This year marks an important milestone in the history of the FIM, as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the foundation of our Ride Green Programme, which began in 1992, with a great group of professionals who were focused on preparing the roadmap for a sustainable future of our sport.

This year marks an important milestone in the history of the FIM, as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the foundation of our Ride Green Programme, which began in 1992, with a great group of professionals who were focused on preparing the roadmap for a sustainable future of our sport.


Three decades of impact in which for a long time we were totally isolated in the sports environment and in which only the Olympic Committee and some sports associations were clear about the fundamental role of sport in sustainable development.


If we started this project with the aim of defending our sport and reducing its impact, today three decades later, our vision is slight different: Use our sport as an facilitator of sustainable development and contribute to the world agenda 2030.
Both in motorcycle sport and in tourism and mobility we are embedding sustainability by developing fundamental issues such as education for our FIM family, inclusion, energy transition, noise level reduction, climate change, awareness and all this aligned with the objectives of the sustainable development amongst others.


Currently our promoters are investing in sustainability and carbon neutrality strategies, and we increasingly realise the importance of this topic in all the interest groups of our great family.


Our sponsors are progressively aware of the importance of sponsoring responsible products aligned with their strategies. We must offer safe, quality, and sustainable championships that enhance the brand of our sponsors.


We also have a large number of fans concerned about current issues such as climate change, pollution, noise who are looking for conscious and committed entertainment.


With these reflections I want to motivate you to join the actions for the planet and as the great community that we are, we join together to celebrate sustainable living during the FIM Sustainability Week, which will take place from 30 May, culminating with the International Environment Day celebrations on 5 June 2022.


With the theme of World Environment Day 2022 #OnlyOneEarth I wish you a great summer and a great season.


Jorge Viegas
President
