After a meeting between manufacturers and FIM, Youthstream and FIM Europe have announced the start of a new European 300cc Two-stroke Championship, which will commence next season.
All the parties at the meeting agreed that this series is likely to have great success and it will be the base to take part in the FIM Motocross World Championship.
The market demand of the two-stroke for motocross is increasing rapidly. Youthstream plans to hold between six to seven races together with the MXGPs (like it is already done for the 125cc and 250cc). The suggested capacity for the technical rules is going to be from 200cc to 300cc two-stroke.
Youthstream and FIM Europe believe a large number of riders are going to participate in this Championship, especially taking into account that the FIM MX3 World Championship will stop in 2014. Youthstream and FIM Europe feel there will be many riders willing to enter the new European 300cc two-stroke series.
