The Motocross Grand Prix Commission has reversed plans to award qualifying points in the 2016 MXGP World Championship, it was confirmed in an announcement overnight from Europe.

It was previously announced that heat races would award points for the top five finishes next year, however that decision has now been cancelled by officials.

Consequently, the qualifying procedure (without the awarding of any points) and the points scoring system for the two races set out in the 2015 regulations will remain unchanged for the 2016 season.
