VIVA – The Motocross Grand Prix (MXGP) or the world's motocross racing event in 2023 will be held twice in Indonesia, exactly in the Province of West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). The Governor of NTB, Zulkieflimansyah said that two MXGP series would be held in Samota Sumbawa and Mataram City.

"Insya Allah, MXGP in 2023 will be held in two series in NTB. Around the end of June in Samota and early July in Lombok," Zulkiedlimansyah remarked on Wednesday, August 3, 2022.

Not only that, West Nusa Tenggara Province is also chosen to be the location for the MXGP until 2027.

"Indonesia gets two quotas to host the MXGP, and thank God both are in NTB and no longer in other provinces at least until 2027," Zulkieflimansyah remarked.
