Motorcycling Queensland, on behalf of the Queensland Motocross Subcommittee is pleased to announce changes to next year’s major MX Series, which we anticipate will help with promoting and strengthening the sport of MX in Queensland.
In 2016 the Sunshine State MX Series, Central Queensland MX Series and Tropical North Queensland MX Series will act as qualifying events for riders hoping to participate in the Queensland MX Championships.
The MX Subcommittee and Motorcycling Queensland are currently finalising the mechanics of how this new system will work, and will announce more details in the coming months.
The key rationales for this change are as follows:
*To provide a logical flow and pathway between our major MX Series in Queensland;
*To provide a logical flow and pathway to our major MX events calendar in the way it is planned;
*To help lift the profile of the Queensland MX Championships, to ensure it is a legitimate Championships event with the best riders participating – with interest across the three zones;
*Ability to attract better sponsorship – businesses keen to sponsors at the Queensland Championships level will be interested in leveraging their sponsorship dollar into other Series events that link to a state title event;
*Improved media and promotional opportunities for all of these events.
We are similarly pleased to announce that Robbie Marshall will once again fill the role as Series Coordinator for the Queensland MX Championships and Sunshine State MX Series, and Rachelle Houterman will fill the position of Series Race Secretary for these events.
The MX subcommittee and Motorcycling Queensland look forward to making all major MX Series events as successful as possible in 2016
