Australia returns to the MXGP World Championship next season.

The MXGP Motocross World Championship will host a round in Australia in 2025 after a gap of 24 years. It will take place in Darwin with a scheduled date of September next year, and the contract will run until 2029.

According to the championship's official website, the exclusive agreement is between promoter Infront Moto Racing, the Northern Territory Major Events Corporation (NTMEC) and Motorcycle Australia, with strong support from the Northern Territory Government.

The Australian MXGP will, as usual for non-European circuits, include the MXGP and MX2 World Championships and the Women's World Championship WMX. The last visit to the country starts in 2001 for Bradford.

Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo said:We are truly delighted to bring the MXGP to Australia and Darwin, marking a successful return to this vibrant country. The anticipation for Australian fans to get their Grand Prix is ​​unmatched, as they have been waiting for a round in their homeland for years. Additionally, hosting the event in Australia not only cements its position as a major player on the global motocross scene, but also underlines our commitment to expanding overseas circuits and showcasing this exciting sport to fans around the world. We look forward to seeing the tremendous enthusiasm and support from local and international fans as Australia becomes part of the MXGP calendar from 2025.'.
