Following on from last week’s announcement of the Maxxis’ 2017 dates. The ACU Motocross Committee has today released the 2017 championship calendars for the Thor ACU British Youth Nationals and the Michelin MX Nationals.

The ACU Motocross Committee met recently with representatives from both championships and the productive meeting delivered agreed calendars for the governing body’s two other national championships.

The main goal of the meeting at the ACU headquarters in Rugby was to ensure there would no unscheduled date clashes between all of the key motocross championships run under the ACU banner.


The provisional calendar of dates have now been released – subject to the confirmation of the World and European Championship dates – but like the Maxxis dates, there are no venues attached to the dates.

The ACU say the calendar for the 2017 season has been designed to allow riders to choose the right platform to boost their racing career. They hope it will give them the opportunity to reach the levels they aspire to and continue their progression from National to British, and continue their development towards the European and World Championships.

The 2016 championships have all seen an increase in rider support, which has made for close and exciting racing across all classes and championships, say the promoters.

ACU Chairman Brian Higgins said he is “delighted” that a round of emails and an hour meeting delivered a calendar that avoided any clashes.

“Of course, we have to remember that these dates may have to change if the FIM alter the World Championship dates, but an agreement has been made that all three championships, including the Maxxis ACU British Championship, will continue with dialogue if changes are forced upon us.” added Higgins.

A further announcement is due next week with regard to another possible series which the ACU will work closely with and this has been taken into consideration with the dates agreed.
