In a year that has already had a decade’s worth of drama and events with two months to go, many people are already looking forward to 2021 and hoping it’s a much better year than 2020 for a variety of reasons. The thing 2020 will be mostly remembered for in the future is the COVID-19 pandemic and the havoc it has wreaked on every single country in the world with the amount of lives lost and destroyed.

sports events 2021

There is already cause for optimism as one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world has already announced that they have developed a vaccine that is 90% effective. Another cause of optimism is that sports, which have been affected like everything else by the pandemic, are already making a return and even though arenas and stadiums are still mostly empty, it is likely that people can begin to watch their favorite sporting events live soon enough, maybe as early as 2021. There are plenty of different motorsports to bet on in 2021 but in this article, we will focus on other types as well. Here are some of the most-anticipated sporting events of next year:


After getting shut down on the 11th of March after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus, a bubble was created at Disney World in Florida for them to finish their season and playoffs to determine who would be the NBA champs and awards like the NBA MVP and NBA DPOY. The bubble ended up being a success and treated basketball fans to high-level playoff basketball at a time when not much else in the world was going well. Players such as Jamal Murray, Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell and Bam Adebayo did well and burnished their reputations while players like Paul George, James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Giannis Antetokoumpo got some deserved criticism for their disappointing performances.

The NBA final came down to the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers and was won by the Lakers, led by the ageless LeBron James. Ahead of the next season tentatively scheduled for December 2020, there are a number of factors/questions that will make the next NBA season a must watch for basketball fans such as:

·       What will a new-look NBA be like now that returning superstars like Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Klay Thompson are back?

·       Will the young stars that stepped up in their absence challenge them for spots on the All-star team and All-NBA teams or will they wait their turn? 

·       Does LeBron James have it in him to lead the Lakers to another ring and when does it become Anthony Davis’s team?

·       How will superstars like Kawhi and Giannis react to their disappointing performances?

With the NBA draft taking place on the 18th of November, the fans will have a lot to take in and discuss before the eventual return of the league on December 20.


In the wake of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s shock retirement, the lightweight division just got much more interesting as there are many challengers who will now see a path to the top of the division now that the Alpha dog has retired. Many observers are now floating the idea of a lightweight tournament where the likes of Justin Gaethje, Connor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Michael Chandler, Al Iaquinta, Diego Ferreira, Tony Ferguson and Dan Hooker etc. can compete for the title and a cash prize. Such a scenario would genuinely enthrall fans and stretch over most of 2021. There are other fighters in other divisions that are genuinely entertaining such as Israel Adesanya, Kamaru Usman and of course McGregor himself to entertain the fans next year.


For lovers of the combat sport, 2021 is one of the most exciting years as some much-anticipated bouts are on the cards for next year such as:

Joshua versus Fury:

The potential clash of both Brits will set the winner up to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world as long as both can win their next bouts. Fury will face Deontay Wilder again and Joshua will take on Kubrat Pulev in a mandatory fight and if both win as expected, then the mouth-watering clash of the top dogs in the heavyweight division will be on.

Canelo versus Golovkin:

Since their last fight which Alvarez won controversially by majority decision, fans have been eagerly awaiting their next bout and they might get their wish in 2021 if both fighters win their mandatory challenges first. In that instance, we will most likely see the two best pound-for-pound fighters in the world square up one more time.


The beautiful game is already underway in leagues all over the world and in European tournaments already. In England, Manchester City and Liverpool have renewed their rivalry with Chelsea threatening to crash the party if they maintain their current form. In Germany, Bayern Munich has picked up where they left off last season. In Spain, Barcelona and Madrid have not yet pulled away from the chasing pack and in Italy, a Zlatan- led A.C Milan sit atop the table, 4 and 5 points ahead of Juventus and Inter Milan respectively.

In European tournaments, the teams are already halfway through their group stage while the qualifiers for the European tournament next summer are still ongoing. By 2021, football fans around the world will enjoy the title race, relegation battle, highest goal scorers and league MVPS of all these leagues as well as the winners of the Champions league, Europa league and the Copa Libertadores which will be contested among South American clubs. On the continental front, we will have the European championships and the Copa America to entertain us while the 2021 African cup of Nations has sadly been postponed till 2022

For sports lovers, 2021 is shaping up to be a wonderful year for sports and we are here for all of it.

Speedway Motorcycles

It has quite a special look, the Speedway bike, but it totally fills its purpose. In this article, we will look more into Speedway motorcycles and how they are built, and why.

Only one gear

First off, it has a fixed gear, so it’s basically to drive without a stick. Depending on the course, weather and other factors, the gear will be set up for each race.

Only one foot-rest

Due to the constant anticlockwise turn, while the driver has the left foot mobile, there is only a foot-rest on the right side of the bike.

What engine do Speedway motorcycles use then?

This might be the most interesting part of the bike. The extreme power comes from a 500cc engine which gives around 85 horsepower. The motor is placed as low as possible to give the bike the best stability possible. One of the main manufacturers of speedway engines is Jawa, where you can read more about the engines.

Dead man’s grip, just like on a motorboat

If you have ever driven a fast going motorboat, you probably have used a dead man’s grip, or kill switch as it’s called in speedway. It’s attached around the wrist on the driver so the engine will shut down once the driver falls off the bike.

The throttle – what it all comes down to

Due to the strict rules of how a bike should be built, most of them are quite similar. Therefore, often it comes down to the driver and his feeling of the throttle. The way he uses the throttle will make the speedway bicycle go perfect through the corners and, also very important, giving him a headstart from the first second of the race.

Summary – Speedway Motorcycles

Of course, there are so much more to dig deeper into if you are really interested in the bikes. But, this hopefully gives you a general understanding of how the bike is built and what distinguishes them from normal street bikes. MoorePark will soon be back with more information and news about Speedway!

Electric cars on the rise, also in rally

Together with Hyundai New Zealand, YES Power and technical partners such as Manfred Stohl’s Austrian companies STARD technologies, Canterbury University and Callaghan Innovation, the focus is now on the new electric car.

– Even today, the technology with performance is enough for the rally forest, there are two things above all. Refine the technology to fit rallying on all surfaces and, above all, the range to handle a very long rally day.

The first real tests will be held in the spring of 2020 where a car will later be driven in some competition of the New Zealand Championship to test, collect data and be shown to the public. For 2021 a full season awaits and then the car will be able to handle a rally distance without any problems!

Motor sport part of the Olympics once more?

With the production of competitive electric cars, many in the WRC and the rest of the motorsport world hopes that motorsport once again can become Olympic sport. After the removal of motorboat racing in the 1908 Summer Olympics, where three motorboat races where part of the Olympics, motorsport has not been part of the Olympic family.

International Motor Sports Association FIA was approved by the International Olympic Committee in 2012 and are now recognized as a global sports federation by the IOC. And even if there is still some time before we can expect motor sport in the Olympics, the use of electric cars might be a step in the right direction. Until then, we will have to enjoy the Olympics in other ways, such as watching the new sports in the Olympics 2020.

While working on electrifying a rally car, Hayden is working for a rally comeback in the WRC series, a dialogue is underway with M-Sport about more starts after the cancelled Finnish World Cup adventure – a deal is about to be finalized with the team for at least one start. It would be nice to, once again play Paddon on motorsport PC, mobile and console games or in console in 2020.

Back in the rally car, however, Hayden is already at the weekend, Australian Eureka Rush Rally he teams up with Samantha Gray in a rented Hyundai i20 R5. It is a competition in the FIA ​​Pacific series – a final qualifying competition for the big Asia Pacific finals!

Learning to love NASCAR

NASCAR has always had somewhat of a bad reputation. And its bad reputation is mainly based on the fact that many people believe it’s boring. It’s easy to see why this seems to be the case to the outside eye. There is a regular track and several cars compete with one-another for claiming the first place. And many people show their lowly origins by saying that Earnhardt’s crash and death on the NASCAR racetrack is the single most exciting event in an otherwise boring racing sport. This is not true.

Developing the eye for the intricacies

If you want to enjoy NASCAR for what it is – then you will need to sharpen your focus. There are many details in any given race that aren’t noticed by the untrained eye. As we’ve mentioned previously, it all looks pretty simple to the outsiders.
But once you invest some time and focus, you will begin to see the details. Small maneuvers that can mean a lot will begin to stand out for you. How a race is raced out is also important – there are strategies and tactics that the racers apply. There is also ample room for improvisation. And the small maneuvers that we have mentioned can change the outcome of the race. Not to mention the fact that all the racers need to be wary of ramming their cars in the wall or off the track or in another car. This makes things a lot more interesting to the trained eye.

You could also find a true connoisseur of the NASCAR sport. They will be able to tell you all about what interests you. At all times – there is someone that knows a certain subject better than you. And this is pretty much the case with NASCAR, too, as is with other things.

In conclusion

Developing your love for NASCAR may take some time. You could “get struck with lightning” from the very first moment you see a NASCAR event. Most people would say that it takes some time and patience to really get to love NASCAR. We hope that you too will get to this level.

Drag racing’s allure

Humans have been driving cars of a hundred years or so. Most people do it because they have a need to get somewhere quickly. But there are some people that are aficionados of driving. And there are special sports and events when it comes to driving cars. It’s not all about circuit racing and driving multiple laps. In fact, one of the most exciting racing sports is that of drag racing. Read why below.

 Drag racing’s allureThe 10 seconds of pure excitement

When it comes to drag racing, the most frequent complaint is that it lasts very short. And we can see why this is the case. Most events end in 10-15 seconds, or so. However, the quality of the experience is practically unmatched. It’s easy to compare regular racing and drag racing to marathons and sprints. Most people would agree that it’s much more satisfying and exciting to watch sprints than marathons – albeit the events are shorter.
So, drag racing is not for those that are weak of heart. Minutes before the event starts – you will start to feel heart palpitations. The excitement is incomparable to anything else. And when the cars start driving – all hell breaks loose. It’s a pleasure to witness these events.

The skill of the driver

It’s not just about the power of the car – though this is one of the most important elements. It’s also about how skilled the driver is. Believe it or not, there is a lot of skill involved in drag racing. The time being so short – the driver needs to make every little move count. If there is a lapse of attention for 0.1 seconds – then it’s a critical mistake that may cost the race. If there is a single wrong move, then the event is done for, for the driver.
So, it takes many years to master the art and science of drag racing. But the experience can be rewarding. Both the drivers and the people watching the event will have a blast. It’s for a reason that this is one of the most popular and most exciting of driving events.

In conclusion

By now you have learned about what exactly makes drag racing so fun. If you’re interested, then you can see a few events on YouTube. But there is nothing as exhilarating as watching a live drag racing event. Except for, of course, joining such an event as a driver, yourself.
