Fantastic news for British Motocross as RHL Activities will become the promoters of the ACU Adult British Motocross Championship for 2021. Read the full statement from RHL and the ACU below.
RHL Activities are pleased to announce they have been granted the 2021 rights to promote the Adult ACU British Motocross Championship from the Auto Cycle Union.
RHL have worked tirelessly with the ACU over the past months to bring this new and exciting structure together which will see the ACU and RHL move to a work relationship similar to the FIM and Infront Moto Racing with the MXGP for the 2021 season.
The new structure will see RHL become the Commercial Partner and ACU staying heavily involved with the rules and regulations of the FIM sanctioned Motocross series in the UK.
Roy Humphrey, Chairman of the ACU commented, “This year will always be remembered for Covid-19 and during the last few months, there hasn’t been many lights at the end of the tunnel or much to cheer about. In these dark times of necessary increased restrictions being put in place by the UK Government, a new dawn on the British Motocross Championship approaches as the ACU appoint RHL Activities as the Promoter of the Series. RHL and Gareth are synonymous with Motocross, the quality and presentation of their events are excellent, and we look forward to working with them for the benefit of the British Motocross Championship”.
Steve McCauley, ACU Motocross Chairman commented on the partnership with RHL Activities, – “2020 has been a year that both myself and my Committee will not be sorry to put behind us for reasons which are self-explanatory.
Whilst we are fully aware that the World has not yet seen the end of the Covid restrictions we look forward to a brighter 2021. We really felt it was time to shake the series up with a major re-vamp, believe me when I say this isn’t just the Committee passing the reins to a promoter. We will retain what has always been the backbone of our series with our superb traditional clubs whilst adding exciting new dimensions to spice everything up. Personally, I feel with RHL’s professional approach and the enthusiasm of the ACU our series will be the pinnacle of UK Motocross”
Gareth Hockey, Director of RHL Activities commented on the new partnership, “We are ecstatic to be given the rights to promote the Adult ACU British Motocross Championship. As many of you know this is something I have wanted for some time and pleased to be able to work with the ACU and the clubs whom run the events to increase the promotion of the premier motocross series for our country.”
