The World Supercross Championship has revealed its sixth and final location for the upcoming 2023 season, with the addition of the Singapore Grand Prix.

The 2023 Supercross Singapore Grand Prix will take place in Singapore’s National Stadium, (with a capacity of 55,000) and will be the third round of the 2023 World Supercross Championship (WSX).

Scheduled for 30 September, the WSX race in Singapore will take place two weeks after the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix, which is promoted by Lushington Entertainments’ affiliate, Singapore GP Pte Ltd. SX Global, the series promoter for the World Supercross Championship, has also partnered with Lushington Entertainments for the promotion of their Singaporean round, which SX Global CEO Adam Bailey described as “a huge opportunity,” in a statement.

“Singapore is a fantastic location for the World Supercross Championship,” Bailey said, “because it’s one of the world’s travel hubs and is central to huge masses of the population throughout Asia, and its National Stadium provides the ideal venue to stage a round of world championship racing,” 
“Within a three-hour flight of Singapore are the world’s largest motorcycle markets, including Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, making South-East Asia an extremely important region for the World Supercross Championship as we continue to expand our global footprint.

“Partnering with Lushington Entertainments is a huge opportunity for the championship and for supercross as a whole. We are thrilled to be working with the same team at the helm of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, the original night race that set the benchmark for combining on-track activity with world-class entertainment and music acts.

“They are absolute experts at combining world championship motorsport and entertainment, and there is no one better for us to partner with to deliver an incredible experience in Singapore.”

Lushington Entertainments executive director, Adam Firth, said: “We are very pleased to partner with SX Global to bring the world class WSX to Asia for the first time and to do so in our home country Singapore.

“It is a great opportunity to deliver another premier motorsport event that will appeal to a wide audience that includes families, millennials, and sports fans. Over the coming years, we will work with SX Global to grow World Supercross throughout the Asian region.”

The 2023 World Supercross Championship will begin on 1 July at Villa Park in Birmingham, which will host the British Grand Prix, before the series heads to France three weeks later. Round three, in Singapore, will take place two months after the French round, on 30 September. More information can be found, and tickets can be purchased, on the World Supercross website.
