Williams Event Management (WEM) has today released the 2015 MX Nationals venues, with some additions, changes and fan favorites on the circuit for next season.

The series will commence at Horsham for the first time since 2010, before Appin, Broadford, Murray Bridge and stop one of two scheduled at Coolum will complete the season’s first half.

The second half will begin at Raymond Terrace, followed by the debut of Shepparton and a return to Nowra, before Toowoomba and Coolum conclude the series.

“We are very excited about the 2015 championship series and as always we have great venues and partners on board,” WEM’s Kevin Williams commented. “The Horsham venue has seen a lot of upgrades since our last visit and is a very committed club.

“Shepparton has never had a round, so that will be great for everyone and we will be working hard with the club to produce another great race track.

“The return to Nowra is exciting and we are really looking forward to working with Daniel Gatt and the team at Motorcycling NSW.

“And finally the return to Echo Valley will be very exciting. The club have a new committee with lots of energy, and are already working on making many improvements to the venue.”

The calendar confirms that Wonthaggi, Swan Hill, Conondale and Gladstone will all be off the schedule for 2015, while the series is due to return to Wanneroo in WA for 2016.
