2 months ago | Words: Matt Bernard | Photos: Betamotor

After a successful year of competition in 2023 that saw Ruben Chadwick claim victory in the Australian Hard Enduro Championship and Fraser Higlett securing the top spot in the Queensland Offroad Championship, Beta Motorcycles Australia is pleased to announce the 2024 Beta Motorcycles Australia Race Team. This year, the team will have an expanded roster of riders competing in more classes and championships, further showcasing Beta Motorcycles Australia’s commitment to racing and supporting the sport in Australia.

With the release of the all-new Beta RX450, the first purpose-built motocross bike from Beta, Beta Motorcycles Australia is pleased to announce that they will now be venturing into the world of motocross here in Australia. Sponsoring local riders in the ProMX Championship marks a significant milestone for the team and adds a new dimension to their racing endeavours.

Beta’s impressive racing heritage and their championship-winning motorcycles speak for themselves, with their dominance on the global stage of the EnduroGP that has seen them secure seven Manufacturer’s Championships and many Outright and class wins over the years.

“It’s an exciting time for the Beta Motorcycles Australia Race Team, with the expansion of the rider roster seeing us compete in more classes and more championships than ever before. Plus, with the all-new Beta RX450, having Beta on the start gate at the ProMX Championship is an exciting development for the team. Thank you to our sponsors for your support.” – Race Team Manager, Ash Martin
