The Spanish city of Jerez de la Frontera has been appointed “World Capital of Motorcycling 2015” by the FIM.

This appointment is a new initiative to help raise awareness of the range of FIM motorcycling activities and at the same time to promote the host region, thereby enhancing the worldwide visibility of both. 

Already a popular and well established stop on the FIM MotoGP calendar, Jerez is welcoming an extensive programme of sporting events during 2015 (i.e.: rounds of Superbike, Enduro, Trial and of course MotoGP…).  In addition to a packed schedule of sporting activities, Jerez will also host a series of symposiums focused on two-wheel road safety, training and leadership as well as the first ever conference on Women and Sustainability.

FIM President Vito Ippolito said: “Having Jerez as the first ever World Capital of Motorcycling will also set the benchmark for future host cities, as this is a very important opportunity to showcase the variety and diversity of FIM Championships and all the many other FIM activities as well as the strengths and beauty of the local region.”
