Maxxis vs MXGP?

There is some concern inside the industry as the current Maxxis British Motocross championship dates for 2018 see two of their rounds run on the same weekend as some MXGP rounds.

A handful of our British clients and readers have contacted us asking if the MXGP dates are pretty much set, and while the MXGP calendar is not out until around October 20, we did receive a press release yesterday from the promoters of the Spanish GP, and that date seems set in stone, for the 24th and 25th of March, the same date as the second round of the Maxxis, at a yet to be confirmed venue.

ACU Events did mention in their press release for their provisional calendar, that their dates may alter due to GP dates changing. ACU also have a reserve date in October, so it seems that changes will be made, but for now, its unknown what will happen.

More on this later.
