The MX Nationals' penultimate round of 2010 will take place at Moree in NSW.

It’s been revealed that round seven of the 2010 Rockstar Energy MX Nationals has been moved to the Moree Motorcycle Club in New South Wales on 18 July.

The round, originally slated for Port Macquarie, was tentatively moved to McAdam Park, Barrabool, however Motorcycling Australia and series promoter Williams Event Management (WEM) today announced that they ave decided against holding any national championship events at the Geelong facility in 2010.

When MA purchased the venue, it was excited at the opportunity to bring national events to the region, boosting both the local economy and promoting the local area.

However, due to unforeseen setbacks, including assurances that the venues infrastructure was at a high enough standard for a national championship, the round has been deemed unable to go ahead.

MA is working with the Surf Coast Shire in relation to Infrastructure and Event Management planning and is committed to the long term future of the property, looking forward to working alongside all parties involved to ensure this historic motorcycling facility is enjoyed for many years to come.

Just this week it has been speculated that the opening round of the Motocross World Championship will be staged at Barrabool, however former GP venue Broadford has also been mentioned as a possibility.
