Turin – June 19, 2018
Hong Kong was announced as one of the new stops of the 2019 MXGP Calendar.
The announcement was made to the media and teams by Youtshtream President Giuseppe Luongo last Saturday in Ottobiano.
For the occasion he was joined by FIM Europe President, Dr. Wolfgang Srb, FIM/CMS Director, Tony Skillington, Moonmoto Hong Kong CEO & Organizer of the MXGP of Hong Kong, Ashley Sauk, and Moonmoto Hong Kong Partner, Pier Carlo Bottero.
The event that will be in the MXGP Calendar for 3 years starting from 2019, was announced as one of the twenty rounds planned for the 2019 season. Among the overseas destinations together with Hong Kong is also Shanghai, P.R.C.
With the MXGP of Hong Kong, Motocross heads for first time to one of the most important international financial centers in the world, capital of finance and trading.
The event will therefore be a great opportunity for MXGP stakeholders to develop important relations with local sponsors also outside the motocross sector.
Hong Kong is a great destionation which offers all comforts: from the beautiful hotel facilities, to the optimal fly connections and excellent infrastructures and a high level of security.
At the moment the organizers are evaluating the best suitable location for the new track, which will certainly be built in an area not too far from the city center.
Organizers forecast a great attendance of public being the area densely populated with more than 7millions people.
Together with Formula E, MXGP Hong Kong will be a top class motorsport event to be held in Hong Kong.
Pier Carlo Bottero, Moonmoto Hong Kong Partner: “The MXGP of Hong Kong will be definitely a great event. Hong Kong already hosts Formula E and so to add Motocross is really exciting. We could not choose a better location for this MXGP. I wish to thank Giuseppe Luongo, Ashley Sauk and the FIM to make all this possible.”
