Pirelli MX Nationals promoter Kevin Williams today announced a venue change for rounds 7 and 8 to be held on the 14th and 15th of July.
The series had planned to run a super stadium cross at Maitland, NSW, but due to unforeseen issues with the venue it had to be relocated. The event will now be staged at Raymond Terrace just outside Newcastle.
‰ÛÏI am excited to be taking the series to the completely new and totally revamped Ranch MX venue in Raymond Terrace, along side Boyd Events and with the support from the Port Stephens Council we have managed to change our venue and relocate to this amazing new one," Williams said.
‰ÛÏI went to the new Ranch MX venue in Raymond Terrace only a few short weeks ago and, wow was I excited to see the impressive transformation they have done, many riders who have been to the venue in the past will not recognize it and I am confident it will be a rider and crowd pleaser alike," William added
"WEM and Boyd Events have a long-standing relationship and are pleased to once again have the opptunity to be working together again with support this year from Port Stephens Council."
Port Stephens Council Economic Development and Tourism Coordination, Janelle Gardner said, "Council is really excited to have the opportunity to bring this event to Raymond Terrace, which will see over 450 competitors and officials along with an estimated daily crowd of 3,000 people visit Port Stephens to enjoy all the our region has to offer. It's not only great for our local motocross enthusiasts, but it will also have a really positive economic impact across the entire local community."
