FIM Oceania, in conjunction with Speedway NZ and Motorcycling New Zealand is disappointed to announce today the postponement of the 2022 FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship, due to the continued uncertainty around International border and COVID-19 restrictions in New Zealand.
This FIM Oceania Championship was planned for two rounds on January 29th at Moore Park Speedway in Christchurch, followed by Oreti Park Speedway, Invercargill on February 5th, 2022.
However, the tough decision has been made to postpone these events until January 2023 when international events can be held without restrictions and the events have the opportunity to welcome competitors and speedway fans from across Oceania and around the world.
The announcement made today also allows the competitors of this important FIM Oceania Championship to have a clear decision during the period when final preparations and international shipping would be required. Whilst this is an unfortunate outcome for early 2022, it is appropriate to make a clear decision.
FIM Oceania and Speedway NZ thank the tracks, competitors and fans for their understanding at this complicated time. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship in 2023 in New Zealand.
Further event details on the 2023 FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship will be announced in the coming months.
