Australian Road & Track Rider Promotions (ARTRP) has announced the main event details for the upcoming Australasian FX Motocross Championship and the Australasian Junior FX Motocross Championship at Winton in Victoria on 18-19 December.
The Australian Auto Sport Alliance (AASA) has awarded the inaugural AMXC with Australasian championship status, to be run in conjunction with the Saturday series finale of the three-round day/night Australasian FX Superbike Championship at Winton.
“ARTRP has believed since the first days of the company that Australia is sorely lacking a true domestic major motorcycle racing extravaganza that encompasses more than one aspect of the sport and allows on site camping and we aim to provide just that at Winton Raceway in mid December,” said a statement released this morning.
ARTRP promoted events accept both current MA competition licenses and AASA competition licenses.
Junior racing will take place on the Saturday with racing expected to finish at around 4:30pm, just in time to see the final races on the FX Superbike Championship which is being run at the road racing track until approximately 8:00pm on the other side of the large Winton campground.
Camping with toilets and showers will be available on the Saturday night for a small fee. Competitors who are camping at Winton Raceway on the Saturday night will also be able to stay and see the next day’s racing of the nationally televised single round Senior AMX Championship on the full Winton Motocross Circuit.
