Imatranajo 2017

Tickets for Imatranajo are now available

The Imatranajo organisation of the event is in full swing.

The main classes in Imatranajo will be IRRC Superbike and IRRC Supersport in 2019 as well. The main classes are supported by the familiar Open 1000 and Open 600. In addition to these, the event will include the sidecar class, which will make a comeback to Imatranajo, and the Retro Superbike class, which has quickly become popular on Finnish circuits. The seventh class is still open – Motorclub Imatra is trying to get an event in the ICGP series for classic GP bikes to be held in Finland. If the plans for ICGP will not actualise, the Lightweight class will race in Imatra.
‘By adding more classes, we aim to make sure that there is always something going on on the track and that the audience has enough to see,’ says Sami Backman, president of Motorclub Imatra.
 
The ticket sales for Imatranajo started in December 2018 via the Ticketmaster service. As a Christmas offer, Motorclub Imatra is offering weekend passes for the price of 35 euros (50 euros at the gates). In addition to weekend passes, day tickets are also for sale. Unlike the previous years, the Friday practice can be viewed free of charge in 2019.
The seating tickets and VIP tickets will be available by the MP 19 exhibition.
 
The 55th Imatranajo will be held from 14 to 16 June 2019. Tickets are sold at www.ticketmaster.fi/imatranajo.
