2019 King of MX: Dates Announced
The NSW-based King of MX NSW State Motocross Championship is back for another epic year of racing. The 2019 dates have been announced, so lock them into your calendars and get set for fierce racing for good prize money. Here’s the official news from Motorcycling NSW…
After an incredible reception in 2018, Motorcycling NSW is pleased to confirm that a new King and Queen of MX will be crowned in Goulburn, for the 2019 King of MX NSW State Motocross Championship. The King of MX event will be the first major race meeting for the Goulburn Motorcycle Club at the brand new venue, currently still under construction.
MNSW CEO, Dave Cooke: “We really wanted to rebuild the NSW State Motocross Championship into a prestigious event, and I think most will agree that the 2018 King of MX was exactly that. We’re proud of the number of riders that raced at the final in Port Macquarie, as well as the enormous prize purse that we were able to distribute to riders on behalf of our event partners. 2019 is looking to be another strong step forward and we’re excited to announce the dates today and look forward to seeing who enters the chase for the golden ticket.”
Racers need to enter one of the six qualifier events (see schedule below) where the top six or seven finishers in each class earn their ‘Golden Ticket’ to the final. Once a rider has qualified, they can still ride the other qualifier events but they can’t win another Golden Ticket, so that gives even more riders a chance to qualify. At the final, State Title Champions will be decided over three motos for each class, and some will also earn a spot in the King, Queen, Prince or Princess of MX feature races.
Qualifier 1: February 16-17, Sydney Region (Appin)
Qualifier 2: March 2-3, Northern Region (Moree)
Qualifier 3: March 23-24, Central West (Condobolin)
Qualifier 4: April 6-7, Riverina (Leeton)
Qualifier 5: April 20-21, Southern Region (Canberra)
Qualifier 6: May 18-19, Hunter Region (Maitland)
Finale: June Long Weekend 8-9-10, Goulburn
More information will be announced in the coming weeks, including when entries open and supplementary regulations.
