Due to increased cases of Covid-19 in the UK and ongoing travel and quarantine restrictions, the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Final will not take place at Belle Vue.
BSI Speedway has confirmed that this year’s title decider will be moved to a venue on mainland Europe, with the new hosts to be confirmed soon.
“While the club is naturally disappointed, we fully understand BSI Speedway’s decision and the continued safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in the event the main priority.
This pandemic has caused unimaginable headaches for British Speedway, as it has other sports and businesses across the world. We have worked incredibly hard to get to a point where we can stage Speedway racing in Manchester in 2020.
But the continuing Government announcements coupled with ongoing restrictions across Britain, particularly in relation to international sport, means it would be impractical for Manchester to host the Final.
We are, however, delighted that BSI Speedway want to return to the National Speedway Stadium for the 2021 Final and we look forward to working with them to make next year’s event one to remember.”
