| 14/11/2023 | IMBA Congress 2024 season, Switzerland

The IMBA Congress for the 2024 season took place this year in Egerkingen near Solothurn. The Hotel Egerkingen provided the ideal setting. At last year's congress, you could feel a jolt going through the heads of the IMBA-affiliated associations. The review is now mixed. Although more athletes took part in the races compared to the previous year, some races still had to be cancelled for various reasons. However, the upward trend among Swiss pilots was clearly noticeable. More Swiss riders took part in the races in the various classes than had been the case for a long time. With the exception of the Ladies (due to clashing dates), the Swiss were mostly well represented. We were very successful, winning the Sidecar Nations Trophy and the ...(read more)

| 29/09/2023 | The IMBA season is over.

The last races were last weekend in Kleinhau. The sidecars had their third event there and, as expected, the Swiss riders came with strong teams to support Remo Käser-Cornelio Döring, who had been leading until then. Unfortunately, the interest in this class was not too high this year, so there were only 17 teams in Kleinhau. In the end, it was Käser-Döring who won the title. Fellow countrymen Fabian Hofmann-Marius Strauss could find themselves in second place and the youngest in IMBA sidecar action, Nevio Käser and Jano Käser (12-14) were in the end third to fill the IMBA podium for 2023.

| 29/09/2023 | The IMBA season is over.

The newly created veteran class also had its final run in Kleinhau.After only 16 participants in Genk, Belgium, there were 31 in Kleinhau. The German cross instructor Jürgen Küppers won the day with 3 race victories, ahead of the Dutchman Jacky Thijssen and the Belgian Wim Couwberghs.However, Jürgen Küppers did not play a role in the championship, as he had not competed in the first event in Belgium.So the championship was between the Belgian Couwberghs and Thijssen.The Belgian Danny Scheers was still able to secure 3rd overall place in the background. As for the veteran class, there was some confusion on social media among some Belgian sports fans who did not understand how the regulations for 2023 had been worked out. Not only were ...(read more)

Also Nevio Käser/Jano Käser, all three teams still have a chance to win the title, with 180 points to be awarded in 3 heats. but also local hero Christian Hentrich/Simon Lenz can have small hopes to break into the top 3 of the championship on their home track.

| 15/09/2023 | Cancellation IMBA Mx2 Krasny Dvur CR 17.09.2023!

The IMBA European Championship race in the Czech Republic scheduled for the weekend has unfortunately to be cancelled due to too few participants in the class. It is a pity for the organiser who invests time, effort and also some money in an event and is let down by the riders. We will have to see what happens next for 2024! The championship standings will therefore be based on the 2 IMBA Mx2 races held so far.

| 29/08/2023 | The "old" is the "new" champion, Open Class 2023.

The Belgian Mattéo Puffet left no doubt this year who will be the reigning and probably also the coming champion in the Open class. He came to the final race in Switzerland, in Lützelflüh in the Emmental, with a lead of 111 points. His direct rival, the Englishman James Dodd, unfortunately had to cancel his planned trip because his wife had given birth to a baby in the days before. Unfortunately, there were also several other cancellations due to injury. The starting field was then very shrunk, but the present candidates still fought hard for the places. Mattéo set the best time in qualifying, but his compatriot Jonas Salaets managed a start-finish victory in the first heat. Henry Williams from Great Britain followed him in second place, ...(read more)

IMBA holds a Veterans European Championship for the first time. The first event for the 2023 championship was held in Genk, Belgium. It was a pity that not all registered participants made the journey to the race, but the riders present were all positive about this "new" idea to give former IMBA riders the opportunity to take part in a European Championship under the IMBA flag in the "old" manner. There will be a second event this year in Kleinhau, Germany, on 24.09.2023 and we hope for an even stronger starting field.

| 26/06/2023 | IMBA Race Classic-Oldtimer in Pacov CH 2023

I was very enthusiastic about the event for the Classic Oldtimers in Pacov, great WRC track, everything organised like a WRC. The supply of everything was excellently organised by the club and the Classic organisers, the timing team still worked with the "old" Orbits system, but everything fit and worked to the minute and the transponders worked very well. The process and organisation by ECMO and the timekeeping team was absolutely perfect. The classes were well filled, even though not all the "oldies" had made the journey to the Czech Republic. In the evening there was the award ceremony for the daily classification, which was also the European Championship for the ECMO (European Classic Motocross Organisation). In addition, there was ...(read more)
