MX Champs in August
The Queensland Motocross Championships are now confirmed for the weekend of August 28, 2021 COVID-19 concerns had become a major speedbump for the Championships, which had originally been set to be held in Mackay July 10–11.
Mackay MotoCross club member Bianca Ross said competitors
had been practicing hard in the
lead up to the event, and riders
were still welcome to use the
Mackay track to train.
She said to replace the Queensland Motocross champi- onships on the July 10-11 weekend, the Mackay Junior Motocross Club would host a Club Day for those who can make it.
“This will be the first inter-
club series with the last three club
days taking place over the coming
months,” she said.
“We have major funding from
Mackay Regional Council. They
have jumped on board with us
with a grant of $10,000 for mar-keting and promotion, so that has
been a huge help to us."
Ross said with three hundred
members of the club showing
up to practices during next few
months, clubs from other areas
were also welcome to come and
“With more than one hundred
riders showing up on any given
weekend on practice days, members from as far as Arlie Beach
were attending the weekend practice,s as well as members from
Whitsunday dirt bike riders.
“We have also had members
from Moranbah, Dysart and Emerald starting to come to the sessions.
“Riders are very keen to start the races, but we just have to set- tle on a date that people can compete.”
