2021 SGP & SON CALENDARS ANNOUNCED

Provisional dates released for 2021 FIM Speedway World Championships presented by Monster Energy.

13 / 11 / 2020, 14:00

The provisional 2021 FIM Speedway Grand Prix and Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations calendars were released today.

Next year’s SGP world individual champion is set to be crowned over 11 rounds, across at least seven different countries, including Russia which is staging its first-ever SGP event.

Next season also marks the 20th Adrian Flux British SGP at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

Prague’s Marketa Stadium will extend its run as the longest-serving SGP venue when it stages the Czech SGP on June 5 – the 26th SGP round to take place in the Czech capital which first hosted the event in 1997. 

The Monster Energy SON returns on September 17 and 18, in Latvia, where the top three countries in each event will qualify for the Final.

The 2021 calendars are subject to change due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of Motorsports Events at IMG, said: “We are hopeful we will deliver an unforgettable year of world championship action after what has been a tough 2020 for everyone.

“Given that restrictions continue to change, the 2021 calendars remain subject to alteration. But despite all the challenges we faced, we were still able to stage some fantastic speedway this season and whatever 2021 brings, we are determined to bring our fans around the world more incredible racing.

“We look forward to returning to the nations that were unable to stage racing this year and I am particularly pleased to see Togliatti host SGP action for the first time.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made our 2020 events possible, including our partners at the FIM. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.”
