Changes Confirmed for 2024 FIM Sand Races World Cup

The FIM is pleased to confirm a number of major changes to the 2024 FIM Sand Races World Cup series, which for 2024 includes the Weston Beach Race for the first time, with each round again having its own unique format as detailed in the respective Supplementary Regulations, but all still counting towards the overall standings.  British sand racing ace Todd Kellett won the initial Championship in the Motorcycle Category, held over three rounds in 2023.

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).

Riders await the start of the Enduro Del Verano in Argentina.


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 underway, this very weekend, with the world-famous Enduropale du Touquet Pas-de-Calais from 2-4 February.
