A new FIM North America Continental Motocross Championship has been formed for amateurs in a partnership between MX Sports, the AMA and FIM North America, which will include a round each within Canada and the United States.

Set to be contested over two rounds, the first outing of the series takes place on 10-11 September at Moto Park in Chatsworth, Ontario, Canada and the second held on 1 October at High Point Raceway in Pennsylvania.

The championship intends to give amateur racers from Canada and the US a unique opportunity to compete against each other for championship honors and, with events in both countries, racers lining up at each event have the opportunity to race on foreign and home soil.

“This promises to be a unique opportunity for Canadian and American riders to compete head-to-head,” explained MX Sports’ Jared Bolton. “It’s been common to see professional racers from the United States racing the Canadian series and vice-versa, but it’s rare to see this happen in amateur racing.

“The goal here is to open up opportunities for riders to not only compete for championship honors, but visit new locations and meet new people along the way!”

Championship classes will include Supermini, 250 A, Open A, 250 B, Open B, 250 A/B All Star, Open A/B All Star, Vet 30+, Senior 40+ and Women.

Additional support classes will be available at both events. The High Point event will utilize classes from the PAMX series, which will be racing in conjunction with the event, and likewise MotoPark will offer support classes similar to the PAMX series.
