The 2023 Aussie Flat Track Nationals (AFTN) heads to Mick Doohan Raceway (Raubers Rd, Banyo QLD) for the third and fourth rounds of the six-round series the weekend after next (September 16 and 17) as the fastest flat track racers in the country battle it out across two different circuits at the one venue.

Saturday will see the highly anticipated Pro Twins class join the schedule alongside Clubman Open and the future stars in Junior 85 and Junior Lites, while the Pro 450 battle it out for the big money and bigger bragging rights as they look to build their championship on the more traditional flat track layout. Sunday will see the AFTN switch to the more technical TT circuit featuring changes in direction and jumps to challenge riders.

With local favourite Jarred Brook, currently second in the championship, forced to miss the second instalment of the series due to commitments racing the World Championship in Europe, the door is open as riders such as Matt Davies, Cyshan Weale, Billy Van Eerde and Daniel Wicks try to chase down Pro 450 series leader Mick Kirkness.

“The weekend is set to be an exciting one as the series points begin to unfold, and battles within the classes reveal themselves even further,” AFTN’s Dave Maddock stated. “The team at North Brisbane Junior Motorcycle Club have been fantastic in preparing the venue for us, and it’s a drastically different surface to that of Appin, so it will be interesting to see how that impacts the leaderboard in each class. There’s 450 points on offer in most classes this weekend, and almost $5000 in cash and prizes to be won, so it’s set to be a great two days of racing”.
