BMW Bavaria Laakkonen 56th Imatranajo moves to 2022

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic BMW Bavaria Laakkonen 56th Imatranajo IRRC will be moved to next year. The new dates for the event are July 1-3 2022.

Imatranajo is a part of the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC). Motorclub Imatra together with the town of Imatra and the IRRC organization have decided to move the to be held next summer.

Imatranajo is the biggest road racing event in Nordic countries with 42 000 visitors in 2019. The goal for this summer was set at 50 000 visitors. The financial effect of the event to the whole area is significant. The event is organized by the Motorclub Imatra and Imatranajo Oy. The majority of the organizers are volunteers.

- We are all very dissappointed that we have to postpone the event for the second year in a row. In this situation however the health of the staff, riders, teams, our partners, visitors as well as the people of Imatra comes first. Luckily our contract with the IRRC organization allows us to move the event to next year, says the head of Motorclub Imatra Sami Backman.

- We were positive until today that the COVID-19 situation would allow us to have the event as planned. However there are still too many uncertainties regarding international riders travelling here and also restrictions on the amount of spectators. These were the main reasons that resulted in our decision to move the event, says the head of development and partnerships Eero Kiiskinen.
