2018 Australian Supercross Championship Announced.
The Australian Supercross Championship is set for an overhaul, with AUS SX Holdings, the parent company to the AUS-X Open in Sydney, assuming the Commercial Rights to the championship, in a landmark agreement with the sport‰Ûªs controlling body, Motorcycling Australia.

The deal will see AUS SX Holdings Directors Adam Bailey and Ryan Sanderson develop a long-term strategy to continue the reinvigoration and cement the sustainability of the sport of Supercross in Australia.

‰ÛÏHaving been so focussed on the delivery and promotion of the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney event, since late 2013, we felt the timing was right for us to expand our operations and focus on the long-term growth of the entire Australian Supercross Championship.‰Û

Scott Bannan Promotions will continue the delivery of championship events in Queensland, with a brand new addition in Troy Bayliss Events, engaged to deliver events in South Australia and Victoria.

The Bayliss name is synonymous with motorcycle racing in Australia having won three World Superbike Championships in a long and illustrious career spanning four decades. Troy Bayliss Events have promoted the Australian Motorcycle Expo events in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane since 2014, multiple EnduroX events and the creation of the Troy Bayliss Classic and Baylisstic Scramble.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve always had a great relationship with both Scott Bannan Promotions and Troy Bayliss Events, we are absolutely certain that together we can deliver a fantastic series that our riders, teams and the industry deserves,‰Û

Another exciting addition to the 2018 calendar will be an all-new Amateur Supercross Cup, set to run in conjunction with the Australian Supercross Championship events, spanning Queensland, Victoria and South Australia and executed by Scott Bannan Promotions and Troy Bayliss events, the day following their Supercross events.

The series, run on a modified version of the same track competed on by the pro‰Ûªs, is aimed at increasing Supercross participation and developing future talent, by giving all Australian motocross athletes a pathway to full-blown Australian Supercross Championship racing, starting with juniors all the way to the premier category.

‰ÛÏWe realise that in order to give athletes a pathway to compete as professional Supercross riders, we need to give them events that they can use to gain valuable experience and track time. Expecting juniors to come from racing at state Motocross events and progress straight into the extreme conditions of Supercross racing, is not realistic.‰Û
