Horsham to replace Barrabool on MX Nationals schedule
Williams Event Management and Motorcycling Australia announce a change of venue for round seven of the 2012 Monster Energy MX Nationals from Barrabool to Horsham in Victoria. The date of 15 July will remain.
“It is very disappointing this decision had to be made,” said WEM’s Kevin Williams “The property is owned by Motorcycling Australia and they currently have some planning applications before the local authorities and they may not be finalised until around the time of the event. Under those circumstances it was prudent to change the venue for that round.
“We would like to thank the Horsham Motorcycle club for providing the venue to ensure the championship series can maintain its 10-round scheduled for 2012.”
The Monster Energy MX Nationals, Australian Motocross Championship, most recently visited the Horsham venue as the season opener in 2010.
Currently in its mid-season break, the Australian Motocross Championship will continue at Hervey Bay in Queensland on Sunday, 1 July.
