With just one event yet to be announced (TBA), the calendar for the 2023 FIM EnduroGP World Championship is now all but complete with seven of the seven rounds confirmed ahead of the new season. Bringing together a number of races that featured in the 2022 championship with well-established events that have previously hosted EnduroGP events, the series will start in Italy for the first time ever.
Beginning in Italy in early April and finishing in Portugal in early October, the championship will begin with two stand-alone races – rounds one and two in Italy and Spain. Then, the series will feature three back-to-back GP weekends – rounds three and four in Finland and Sweden, rounds five and six in Slovakia and TBA, and rounds seven and eight, both in Portugal.
Italy and the rugged mountains of the San Remo/Arma di Taggia region will host the opening round of the 2023 FIM EnduroGP World Championship, something that will undoubtedly please newly crowned EnduroGP World Champion Andrea Verona (GASGAS).
Round two of the 2023 series will take place in Lalin in northwest Spain, the venue for the opening round of the 2022 championship.
For 2023 the FIM EnduroGP World Championship will feature a Scandinavian tour as the series returns to Finland and Sweden on consecutive weekends at the end of May and start of June. Visiting the enduro heartlands of Heinola in Finland and Skovde in Sweden, the series’ most northerly events will take the championship to its mid-way point.
Following a three-week break the EnduroGP series will return to action on the first weekend in July as it makes a return visit to Gelnica in Slovakia, home to the fifth round of the 2022 series and an event that unquestionably proved its worth in 2022 with its spectacular forest-based special tests.
Bringing the championship to a close with back-to-back competitions in Portugal, Valpacos and St Andre/Santiago do Cacem will play hosts to rounds six and seven.
