Revised dates for Bathurst and Lakes King of MX Qualifiers

Posted:

Motorcycling NSW has taken the unavoidable step of rearranging the 2020 King of MX qualifier schedule, swapping the Bathurst and Lakes qualifier events after it became clear that other events in the Bathurst region would make logistics especially difficult for entrants.

Lake Macquarie will now host qualifier 3 on March 14-15, while the Panorama Motorcycle Club will shift to the qualifier 5 dates of April 18-19.

‰ÛÏWe were made aware of some regional events in Bathurst that were going to have some impacts on entrants‰Ûª ability to find cost-effective accommodation, among other things, and so we began looking at our options," Motorcycling CEO Dave Cooke explained.

"It became clear quite quickly, with some FIM events along with other local date restrictions, that a date change just wasn't possible. After consulting with our partner clubs, the team at Lakes were able to come to the party, and essentially trade dates with Panorama to allow as little impact as possible to those planning on racing the events.

"While I agree it's not ideal to have to change the calendar, I'm grateful to everyone involved who‰Ûªs helped to find, what is a great solution. I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who travelled to Bega over the weekend for the first qualifier. As all of Australia knows, the far south coast region of NSW was heavily fire affected, and I'm really proud that our sport could play a small role in bringing people back to the area and contribute to rebuilding this beautiful part of the state," Cooke concluded.

With the King of MX firmly underway for 2020, all focus now turns to Narrabri, where, in just two weeks‰Ûª time, the second qualifier will get underway. There, another 126 Golden Tickets will be on offer, and over $1000 in prizes.
