Changes to 2024 FIM Sand Races World Cup confirmed

The FIM is pleased to confirm a number of major changes to the 2024 FIM Sand Races World Cup series, with each round again having its own unique format as detailed in the respective Supplementary Regulations, but all still counting towards the overall standings.

In addition to the expanded six-round calendar that was published last month, the FIM Sand Races World Cup will now be contested across nine categories.

These are Motorcycle (M), Motorcycle Junior 1 (MJ1), Motorcycle Junior 2 (MJ2), Quad (Q), Quad Junior (QJ), SSV (S), Vintage 1 (V1), Vintage 2 (V2) and Vintage Quad (VQ).

The Motorcycle category will have Overall, Veteran and Women classes while MJ1 and MJ2 will include both Junior and Women classes.

Quad competitors will also have Overall, Veteran and Women classes while QJ will include Junior and Women classes.

For SSVs – which stands for Side-By-Side Vehicle – and Vintage Quad competitors there will be an Overall class while V1 and V2 racers will compete in Overall and Women classes.

To qualify for the Vintage categories, machines must be pre-1997 and be equipped with steel frames.

There is also a new logo for the series, featuring two riders in typical starting positions to represent Motorcycle and Quad competitors.

New social media pages on Facebook and Instagram dedicated to the FIM Sand Races World Cup have been created along with a new Sportity Channel that can be accessed using the password FIMSandRaces.

Consisting of races in five separate countries across two continents, the series runs from February to December and gets under way with the world-famous Enduropale du Touquet Pas-de-Calais from 2-4 February.
