Aussie Flat Track Nationals
With the 2022 Aussie Flat Track Nationals such a success the series has now been expanded.

After an incredible response to the inaugural Aussie Flat Track Nationals (AFTN) in October 2023 will see an expansion of the series to six rounds.

The 2023 Aussie Flat Track Nationals will run over three weekends across a range of surface types and track configurations including but not limited to flat track and TT layouts.

The series, now heading into its second year, grows from just two back-to-back rounds in 2022 to six rounds of racing, with entrants looking at a 24-race campaign to become the 2023 AFTN champion.

“I’m happy to see the AFTN grow in 2023, we need a series in Australia that gives riders a chance to show their strengths, make mistakes and improve on their weaknesses to win a championship,” AFTN 2022 Pro 450 Champion, Mick Kirkness said. “It’s a fun event to ride, the atmosphere is great, and I think it will be interesting to see who decides to enter next year with no rounds clashing with calendars overseas.”

AFTN Promoter, Dave Maddock added, “Considering the short notice, we had a great response to the AFTN this year with positive feedback from entrants and enquires from clubs around Australia to host rounds in the future. This gives us more than enough confidence to continue our plan to grow the series in a sustainable way. We’re sticking with the double-header format and can once again promise entrants plenty of track time per class. I’m also really happy that we can include Taree into the calendar. The club has had a tough few years and it’s our hope that the AFTN can play a role to get racing back onto the iconic oil track.”
