2017 Polaris Australian ATV and Sidecar MX Championships Weekend to Remember

Author: Verity Hendy


The 2017 Polaris Australian ATV & Sidecar MX Championships were held in South Australia at Murray Bridge, over the 30th Sept - 1st Oct long weekend.

All classes saw strong representation from all states of Australia and the promoter would like to send its regards to all the entrants, families and friends for making the journey to SA.

For enthusiasts of four-wheeled dirt action, this was a weekend that delivered plenty of action to satisfy all attendees. Beautiful sunny weather made for slightly challenging dust control later in the championship, but the hosting clubs managed to maintain perfect track conditions that allowed for plenty of overtaking opportunities and fantastic racing.

The action in all Senior and Junior Quad classes was second to none as all entrants left nothing up their sleeve to earn those elite podium positions.

The last Senior Sidecar Open race which was an entertaining fight for first place, took peoples breath away. However, every class produced epic racing battles that you could not take your eyes off.

Unprecedented track times were down to a 1 minute 47.7 seconds for the 1.8km hard pack track (set by Chris Bosnakis), all the sideways action and high-flying jumps made for excellent spectator viewing that was backed up by brilliantly entertaining running race commentary.

Available merchandise and delicious catering all helped complete an awesome family fun event. The championship would like to thank all its sponsors especially Polaris and Murray Bridge Council for making the event possible.
