Whispers in the showers in Qld????? That's gotta be dangerous.

Anyway, rode at Crystal Brook last weekend, track was superb, looks a postcard. Asked around & don't think its going to be held there. Either that or they were keeping it a secret & didn't want anyone to know

John.. If there was a greater take up from riders from the "eastern states" to travel to WA ..we might consider.. but historically.. very few travel to WA

Do few travel to Qld? There are plenty of riders already there :-) Many WA riders? Only fair that they get a 'lower cost' round?

Maybe an Alice Springs round is central? ;-)

I think the more fair idea is that all interstate riders pay 50% lower entries, that way the help is shared around, and might get more starters from interstate ........ and doesn't become a 'state championship round'?

The costs of entry are not a factor for me.

    Even though we are from Melbourne .  Would not mind travelling to NSW or Canberra.

    It about time they ran a VMX Event.

    With the large Number of  Competitors, Clubs, Tracks and the Large Resources of MA NSW.

     Surely they could run a good event.

Curious as to which NSW tracks would work for the early era bikes?

NSW has not run the Nats for ages. I'm not sure if any clubs have a interest in running it in NSW? Maybe Dargle could be a venue?

How about the Heaven club ? I tried to get the club to put their hand up in the early 2000's but no interest . One would think the largest VMX club in NSW would be able to manage it .

I have no idea where the next Nationals will be but think NSW would be a great outcome if it could be arranged. there are a bunch of tracks that could be used but its the enthusiasm of those wanting to arrange the event that will dictate the success or not.
I have always looked at Grafton MX Track and the facility there to run an event and wonder if there are places like this that are a little left field of what we expect that could offer a venue to run the event. Agree that Dargle would be an outstanding event but not sure about who or how it would be organised - Its my hope that racing at a National level is not working toward extinction.

While there has been some speculation on when & where the 2020 Classic nationals may be held, to date there have not been any expressions of interest submitted to MA (in fact, none for any of the CMX title events, CMX, CDT, PCMX, PCDT). MA are working on canvasing clubs in an effort to garner some interest, however in the meantime all you guys out there, please do the same. Explore the opportunity for your club to host any of premier events in the CMX calendar for 2020. For anyone out there dabbling with the thought who may be finding it a tad daunting, please don't hesitate to contact myself or any of the clubs who've previously hosted the event to draw on past experience (I can put you in touch). There have been some subtle (sensible) amendments to the 2020 MoMS (to be released soon) which will only enhance the opportunity for clubs to host a successful event. Get on it.
Cheers,
K

The Brisbane MCC has run eight successful Nationals ( including Post Classic and Dirt Track) and would be happy to assist any club who asks.
