Yes Ted, as I said on FB, the event has been postponed. We (CMX commission) are working with the club towards a date later in the year & as soon as it is decided a notification will be forthcoming. What we should be asking is who & how many are likely to support the event given the uncertain times we are in?
Cheers,
K

What Mick said. In the final analyses only the host club can decide if they are willing to put in the work and take the financial risk. The MX Commission is helping where it can and obviously we all hope it goes ahead and gives us something to look forward to.
I think we'll know by Monday but as said it's down to Heaven VMX.

I'm still quite keen but reality might not care. There's so much uncertainty about so many things I wouldn't like to bet on my chances of getting there from WA.

Six weeks on from this discussion and no news if it’s on or not.
Mick Hughes, can you confirm if any progress has been made?

The delay is frustrating to say the least however we are doing our utmost best to make this happen at the proposed venue, unfortunately CV-19 has complicated things no end. We hope to have an answer in the next week, sit tight.

It is with great disappointment we announce that for 2020, the Heaven VMX Club will not be running the 2020 Australian National Classic Motocross Nationals. To say the COVID-19 pandemic has brought chaos to our lives is an understatement, and unfortunately this event for this year is a casualty of the virus. This is a prestigious event, a true National event, and deserves to be conducted as one.
With the recent news and the uncertainty that brings for our Victorian family members, delays from border shutdowns meaning we have missed the window for our Western Australian family members to be able to organize the trip for this year, and the potential travel difficulties members of all other states might face, we feel the event would not be a true National, and in these extreme circumstances running it would not do the event justice.
This was a very difficult decision for us to make, and behind the scenes the Heaven VMX committee and the MA Classic Motocross commission have been working feverishly looking at every possible alternative to try to save the Nationals for this year, but in the end we feel the uncertainty of current climate was too great, and when the Nationals go ahead, the event must be given every chance of success with all racers from around the country given the opportunity to attend. Hopefully by 2021 we will be through the worst of these tough times.
A special thanks goes to Mick Hughes and Colin Metcher for the huge amount of time and effort they have put in for us. These gentlemen unselfishly do a vast amount of volunteer work on behalf of our sport that is very much appreciated by us and it is such a shame that for this event that time has been wasted
