ASSEN (The Netherlands) 29 September 2019 – Just after the 2019 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations Qualifying press conference, the media centre of Assen hosted several exciting announcements about the future of the FIM Motocross World Championship.
Youthstream is honoured to announce Indonesia will continue to be part of the MXGP Calendar for another three years, with two rounds due to take place in 2020, one of them being held in the beautiful Jakarta.
The Indonesian Grand Prix has been a part of the MXGP calendar for the last three years and has opened a brand-new world for the motocross industry, increasing the popularity of the sport in the Asian part of the world.
Youthstream CEO David Luongo met the Supersport Sensation International Chairman Mr. Ivi Sumarna who, together with a delegation from Jakarta, joined the 2019 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations to sign the new three-year contract and experience this fantastic event.
Speaking at the announcement press conference was Youthstream CEO David Luongo and Organiser of the Indonesian MXGP and Supersport Sensation International Chairman Mr. Ivi Sumarna on stage to present the new stop of the Indonesians rounds.
Youthstream CEO David Luongo: “Ladies and Gentlemen, we are honoured to present the signing of the contract for a new venue in Indonesia. The MXGP World Championship is a global series. We travel all around the world and the target for Youthstream, as a promoter, is to make our sport bigger and more popular; Indonesia is one of the biggest countries for the motorcycling industry around the world so it’s very important for the MXGP to be present in Indonesia. The last few years we have had two races there and thanks to the incredible work done we have the occasion to meet a very strong company in Indonesia called Triple S, who were very interested in the potential of the Motocross World Championship. They came to some races and they decided to join us here at the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in order to witness what the events are like in Europe. The race will take place in Jakarta which is a fantastic step for the Grand Prix there. We have no doubt that we will enter in the new dimension for this event in Indonesia to bring motocross to an even higher lever in the country for the upcoming years. I wish to thank Mr. Ivi Sumarna and all the delegation coming from Jakarta for this event this weekend.”
Organiser of the Indonesian MXGP and Supersport Sensation International Chairman Mr.Ivi Sumarna: “Thank you everyone for being here at this presentation. It has been a pleasure for me to see this event onsite. I met David Luongo last year and as you know we have been having the MXGP event the last 3 years, the response is very high in Indonesia and I think it is time now to bring it to Jakarta. First of all, I wish to mention the great support from our President of the Indonesian Federation Sadikin Aksa and from the local government so hopefully we can increase the popularity of motocross all over the world”.
