At the end of the Alpe Adria Annual Meeting, Mr. Cristian Mureşan said: “We are happy that we have managed to include Romania in the Vintage Class of the Alpe Adria Championship, as well as the 125 SP Junior Class.
What we have managed today is to create a bridge between the European BMU Championship and the Alpe Adria Championship. Our long-term goal is to attract as many classes as possible from these two European Zonal Championships, and today we took an important step. We are glad that Romania is the one that through its actions now creates a bridge between the BMU and Alpe Adria Championships and we want to contribute in the future to the development of Motorcycle Racing in the Central and Eastern European region.
We count on the contribution of the motorcycle community in Romania to make a special first impression on the event which we will organize together with the local council of the Mures region, Balkan Motorcycle Union and Alpe Adria Championship at the Transylvania Motor Ring on September 20-22, 2019 where we invite all motorsport passionate people to be present.
