The “Noć Prvaka”, the Night of the 2017 Champions was celebrated in style at the famous Princess Centre in Jastrebarsko, some 30 km from the Croatian capital Zagreb.
The Princess Centre is a Congress and Banquet venue where various events are staged, including many weddings. So why not also a celebration for Motorcycle Champions!

HMS President Stjepan Peršin and HMS Secretary General Ivan Lafter welcomed around 200 riders, their families, clubs, organisers, officials, media as well as representatives from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia. HMS is a very active Federation and plays also a significant role in the context of the Alpe Adria Motorcycle Union (AAMU), one of the six Regional Associations of FIM Europe.
One more thing: HMS has launched a bid to organise the 2019 FIM Europe Congress in Zagreb.
