Themed rounds back on the Motul MX Nationals calendar for 2017
After the success of themed rounds in 2016 where the Motul MX Nationals saw involvement from the Royal Australian Navy and the Breast Cancer Foundation, this year riders and teams will dress their machines up yet again, with three rounds set to take on special initiatives in 2017.

There is nothing as satisfying for a fan than seeing a competitor‰Ûªs race bike up close and personal, and at three selected rounds this year, race goers will have even more reason to take a second look with a Retro Round, Military Appreciation Round and Pink Ribbon Round to be held as part of the championship.

The first of this year‰Ûªs themed rounds will take place half way through the season, at Round 5 at Murray Bridge in South Australia for the official Retro Round, which will see machines don vintage graphics and riders showcase special edition retro gear ‰ÛÒ throwing racing back to the good old days.

The second of the themed rounds will be the Military Appreciation round at Nowra in New South Wales (Round 6), and with involvement from the Royal Australian Navy once again this season, fans will be treated to the ultimate mash up ‰ÛÒ Camo, Armed Forces, and of course Motorsport.

Finally, as per previous years, the closing round of the Motul MX Nationals will not only be dedicated to crowning champions, but to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for the official Pink Ribbon round. With Coolum on the Sunshine Coast as the back drop, competitors will have the opportunity to turn their bikes and gear PINK in a bid to raise funds for those suffering from the effects of Breast Cancer. A charity close to the hearts of many, and of course a special initiative that the Motul MX Nationals undertakes every season.

Motul MX Nationals Series Promoter Kevin Williams today explained why the themed rounds are so important to the championship.

‰ÛÏEvery year we aim to incorporate themed rounds into the series ‰ÛÒ fans simply love seeing something a bit different to what they‰Ûªre used to, and quite often it‰Ûªs all for a fantastic cause,‰Û
