2019 Australian Speedway GP postponed

BSI Speedway has announced that the Australian FIM Speedway Grand Prix (SGP) will not be taking place in 2019.

PSE (Paul Sergeant Events), the locally based promoter that BSI Speedway was working in partnership with in Australia, is no longer able to stage the event due to unforeseen circumstances.

The date and venue for the Australian event, which had been provisionally scheduled as the final round of the 2019 FIM Speedway Grand Prix series, was yet to be confirmed.

The 2019 season will now culminate at the Torun FIM Speedway Grand Prix of Poland on October 5.

BSI Speedway remains committed to bringing the event back to Australia, and is actively seeking a new local promoter to help stage the event in future years.

“While we were eager to run an Australian SGP in 2019, we decided that we should only do so when we are confident we can deliver the quality experience expected by our SGP riders, fans and community.

“We were in dialogue with multiple venues for the 2019 event, and look to continue further discussions with Ipswich in particular with a view to hopefully bringing a fantastic SGP event back to Australia as soon as possible.”
