The 2023 MXGP of Turkiye was officially launched by the welcome ceremony that took place on the main stage of the Afyon Moto Festival next to the paddock and in front of a huge crowd coming to celebrate the seventeenth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship.
Due to the bad weather conditions, including very strong wind and lightning storm, the Event Management decided to cancel the MXGP RAM Qualifying Race for safety reason. The starting grid for the MXGP races on Sunday will be based on today’s MXGP Time Practice results.
In MXGP, Team HRC’s Tim Gajser was the fastest in Time Practice and will be on pole position for the first time this season. In MX2, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Simon Laengenfelder took the race into his own hands to lead from start to finish. The German won his 3rd RAM Qualifying Race of the season.
