The MX3 GPs are dropped for 2014 and replaced with a two-stroke European 300cc championship all a little confusing but read on.
So if the PR below is correct it looks like 250cc machines are making a return if so are we looking at an all round two stroke world championship return in 2 or 3 years?
After a meeting between manufacturers and FIM, Youthstream and FIM Europe are glad to announce to start from next year of a new European 300cc 2 stroke Championship, that is likely to have a great success and it will be the base for a future World Championship.
The market demand of the 2 stroke for Motocross is increasing rapidly. Youthstreamplans to hold between 6 to 7 races together with the MXGP (like it is already done for the 125 and 250). Suggested capacity for the technical rules is going to be from 200cc to 300cc 2 stroke.
Youthstream and FIM Europe believe a large number of riders is going participate in this Championship, in particular because of the fact that the MX3 World Championship will be stopped and for sure there will be many riders wanting to enter.
