Kings & Queens of MX to Run Gold Plates

3 months ago | Words: MNSW | Photos: MNSW

Taking on board feedback from racers around the state, Motorcycling NSW has confirmed that rules have been updated to allow those crowned as NSW State Champions at the Bikebiz King of MX to use gold numbers throughout their reign as State Champions! This is in addition to the existing right of NSW State Champions to run number 1 on their bike at MNSW events in most championship classes.
“Being the champion of NSW for any given class is an achievement worth recognising for longer than just one race meeting,” said MNSW CEO Dave Cooke. “Talking with riders at race meets around the state, it was made clear that we needed to do more than just crown our champions, so we listened, discussed and agreed that allowing our champions to run gold numbers at events would be fitting.”

This change now allows all NSW State Champions of each class to be recognised as the State Champion (so long as they are once again racing in that class), regardless of the rider’s choice of number or even their standing in other series they choose to compete in, so long as it doesn’t conflict with the supp. reg’s of the event they’re racing.

All those racers who become NSW State Champions will still receive their medallion, a tradition that’s been in place for many decades in  NSW, while the King and Queen, Prince and Princess of MX will also receive their crowns, and of course a HUGE $10,000.00 winner’s cheque for both the King and Queen.

With the last qualifier being held in Moree on May 19-20, this is the last chance to earn a ‘Golden Ticket’ to qualify for the final in Port Macquarie, so be sure to head to www.kingofmx.com for details on how to enter.

How to Enter:

Racers need to enter one of the six qualifier events (see schedule below for remaining dates) where the top 5 or 6 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 3 motos for each class, and some will also earn a spot in the King, Queen, Prince or Princess of MX feature races, where the King and Queen will each win $10,000.
