The FIM is pleased to confirm the appointment of Martin Beňa as the first ever promoter of FIM Sidecar Motocross from 2020 for an initial four-year period.

This year will see them continue as the TV and Marketing rights holder before Martin Beňa takes on the role as promoter fully from 2020 onwards.
Delighted to be continuing and extending this existing relationship, Jorge Viegas FIM President said. “The FIM is proud to have for the first time ever a promoter for this exciting discipline. We have enjoyed a good collaboration between the FIM and Martin Beňa since 2017. The FIM is fully committed to cooperate in all ways possible to gain the best success for this exciting new project.”
Adding his own remarks Martin Beňa a explained: “I want to thank the FIM for their collaboration and I am glad that after two years of hard work we have now reached this five-year agreement. I always wanted to become the promoter since I was twenty years old and now it has become a reality. There is a lot of responsibility, but this sport is my passion so I will do the best possible job that I can.”
